Went to the game last night. Mercury were clearly the better team, but lost focus at times.
It's Sunday July 8, but the Mercury game at noon is not on Fox Sports Plus (or any other Fox channel or time), as it was advertised to be. Bummer!
Atlanta beat the Mercury 76-70. But they led 65-48 after 3 quarters. It was an uphill fight for the Mercury.
The Mercury are getting walloped at Dallas. 32-19 at the end of the 1st quarter. Griner playing the other big Center in the WNBA and has not been a factor. That's where DeWanna steps up. Dallas shot an amazing 69% for the quarter.
The Mercury are 2-0 vs. Dallas this season, but this is the second game in a row where they have not been in it, having lost PF Lyttle for the season.
Diana Taurasi went to the locker room at the end of the 1st quarter. They are saying that she was grimacing before the game and is "experiencing illness". 'Doesn't look good for a victory for the Mercury, but I'll keep watching for awhile, before switching to the D-backs game.
EDIT: Yup, time to switch, with DT out and the Mercury down 59-39 at the half. It's not fun listening to the Wings' announcers with the Mercury out of it. They don't like it when Brittney sets a screen.
EDIT: And I see that the Mercury lose by 29 --101-72.
The Mercury beat the lowly Indiana team 101-82, opening it up near the end. Brittney came close to her all-time high of 38 with 36, but missed 5 or 6 free throws, which was uncharacteristic.
By lowly, I'm referring to Indiana's record, having won two games all season. They're a good group of people who try their best on the court.
