Let's hope that the elimination game is an illumination game for our Mercury.

DT is 13-1 in elimination games.

Sunshine, bright lights and happiness. Go for it, ladies! :thumbup:

Skylar is in the lineup, following a minor injury in the last game.

Poor start. Defense needs to play better.

The Mercury are rested and look rusty. The Mystics look in the groove.

And DT is missing her shots.

Washington leads 16-9 with 4 minutes to go in the quarter. But, it's early!

25- 16 Washington at the end of the 1st quarter.

DT gets her first points during the last few seconds.

If she got off to a fast start and we were losing,
that would not be a good sign.

At the 7-minute mark of the 2nd quarter,
the Mercury comes back to tie it up.

Leilani Mitchell, whom I liked as a member of the Mercury,
the smallest player on the court, is killing us.

Washington is playing their third game in four nights.

We're down 46-35 at the half. With the fatigue factor
probable for Mystics and, hey, we have Diana Taurasi,
I see a win coming for the Mercury.

And Sandy reamed her team during a timeout.

Damn, we hit some shots this quarter but unfortunately Washington has been hotter. Still down by 11.

Washington has built the lead back up to 11, 70-59.

Led by Diana, it is now a 1-point game.

DT has been toying with them.

And the Suns take their first lead of the game at the 4:45 mark of the 4th quarter.


Another bucket and it is now 78-73 Mercury. A 17-0 run for the Mercury.

HORRIBLE offensive foul called on Turner. Completely changed the momentum. Tie game.

Petty with a steal, but the Mercury turn it over.

Up by 1 with 53 seconds to go.
