The Phoenix Mercury advance to the Western Conference Finals with a down to the wire win over the Los Angeles Sparks 78-77. Brittney Griner hit the shot to give the Mercury the lead with 4.9 seconds left. Candice Dupree and Kristi Toliver led all scorers with 22 points.
Parker got the last shot for LA but did not have a good look through the double team.
Both teams played so hard and it was a battle from start to finish. It was difficult to watch my team lose, but I cannot hate it was very entertaining.
Congrats to the Mercury!!!
They will have to face the league’s best Minnesota Lynx on Thursday!
