53-28 Mercury at the half
Good win, thumped em for 3/4 of the game.
On a personal note, I was thrilled when I saw that 9 more Mercury games would be on TV from June
on, following the first two which were on ABC and ESPN2 in May, which I saw.
With this most recent game, I saw that my upgraded Contour package with Cox will not carry 7 of
the 9. I have the 3rd tier package (Contour TV), but not the 4th tier (Contour Ultimate).
Those 7 games are on CBS Sports, which is only on the Cox Ultimate package. Being retired, I can't
spend any more than what I am.
I've been with Cox since they were Dimension Cable in Phoenix in the early '80's and have been
satisfied with them. But I am not about to start shopping individual packages. Evidently the Mercury
games are considered top tier.

Ah, the next step. It's getting closer.
It will be great to see DT along with DeWanna & Brittney leading the way.
Good, we need her
My bad! Fox Sports Arizona or Fox Sports Arizona Plus are televising Mercury games on the following dates.
The first was on Sun June 6th 5:00. Coming up will be . . .
Sun. June 23rd 3:00 Arizona time; Sun. June 30th 4:00; Wed. July 17th 12:30; Sat. July 20th 5:00;
Sun. Aug. 25th 3:00; and the last two on Fri. Sep. 6th 7:00 & Sun. July 8th 1:00 (both following the
D-backs post-game show.
Mercury ahead by 4 to start the 4th quarter. We need this win. Mercury and DBacks have both lost a few games in a row.
Great team win. Bonner, Mitchell and January hit some big 3s.
Griner continues to frustrate me with her play. Her lack of tenacity with rebounding and offensively on the block irritates the crap out of me.
LA played with more intensity in the first half and I’m glad we finally upped our intensity the second half.
I agree about Brittney. She is what she has always been. Inconsistent and not a difference maker.
The fact that DeWanna Bonner is, and has been, our most skilled rebounder tells the story.
Taurasi and Bonner affect the outcome of games. Griner hardly ever does.
I just hope the the Suns #1 pick, DeAndre Ayton, doesn't follow in Griner's
footsteps. He played Power Forward in his one year at UofA and Igor had
him play offense at the 3-point line. Brittney has no excuse.
What a game thumping Indiana! #9 Sophie Cunnungham with 19 points on 6 of 8 shooting. Are you kidding me! Leilani Mithchell 18 points 11 assists 5 rebounds!
