    I know that Leilani Mitchell is 34 yo, but I was
    sorry to see that she might have been gone.

    18/11/5 for a Point Guard who is 5'6". Wow!

    And what a 4th quarter for the Mercury.

    Nice win today after a tough loss on Friday. BG with some clutch free throws at the end. Great D by January per usual.

    Tonight's Mercury game (Friday July 12) will be televised on ESPN2.

    And, BTW, DT is back. We'll see how Diana's back will hold up and
    what it will allow her to do vs. Connecticut.

    Brittney Griner is leading the WNBA with 20 ppg. And with my girl,
    DeWanna Bonner, our Big 3 is together again.

    A close game through the 1st half, but Connecticut demolishes the
    Mercury during the 3rd quarter. They had 3 players with double-doubles.

    Taurasi plays only 16 minutes in her first game back, mostly in the first
    half and the Mercury lose 79-64. They had won 6 of their last 7 games.

    Phoenix is not a good rebounding team. That falls on Brittney Griner.

    It's Wed. July 17th - 12:30 PM and the Mercury-Dallas game in Phoenix is on Fox Sports AZ.

    Diana Taurasi, after playing limited minutes in her first game back vs. Connecticut on Friday,
    did not play Sunday and is not playing today. She tweaked her back following the surgery.

    At the end of the 1st quarter, the Mercury lead the Wings 21-17. The Wings are up by 3 at
    the half. DeWanna Bonner, as is often the case, does the bulk of her scoring in the 2nd half.
    Griner had 3 fouls in the 1st half and a quick 4th in the 3rd quarter.

    The Wings dominated points in the paint and rebounds in the 1st half. Each team scored in
    spurts and the Mercury leads by three after 3 quarters.

    Dallas is smothering DeWanna Bonner and she barely got into double digit scoring.

    But the Mercury hold on to win 69-64.

    Alas, the TV listing was wrong. Fox Sports AZ + was carrying the D-backs Spanish broadcast on Saturday, not the Mercury game. _______|
