http://www.azcentral.com/story/spor.../?hootPostID=bf890e8bca03da05db820e2b639277ffBrittney Griner professes not to be in pursuit of WNBA Most Valuable Player, but a quarter of the way through the season, she’s playing at that level.
Coming off a career-high 38 points Wednesday, Griner leads the league in scoring (24.1 ppg) as well as blocks (2.9) and is eighth in rebounding (8.4). She is shooting 58.6 percent (fourth) and making 83.8 percent of her free throws, so putting her on the line isn’t a way out for opponents.
The 6-9 Griner, in her fifth season, is playing up to her height at just the right time, moving to center stage for the Phoenix Mercury ahead of Diana Taurasi, who turns 35 on Sunday.
