2014 WNBA Champion and one of the WNBA’s leading MVP candidates, Brittney Griner, will return to the Mercury lineup tomorrow, Saturday, Aug. 12, when Phoenix takes on the Seattle Storm at Talking Stick Resort Arena. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
Currently the WNBA’s leader in scoring and blocks, Griner missed the Mercury’s last eight games after suffering a left knee bone bruise and right ankle sprain during a game on Friday, Aug. 14.
Griner is averaging a career-high and WNBA-best 22.3 points, while shooting a blistering 57.7 percent from the field. The 6-9 center ranks eighth in the league in rebounding with a career-best 8.2 boards and is leading the league in blocks for the fifth consecutive season in her five-year career (2.5).
History has been made! Diana Taurasi is the new all-time leading scorer in WNBA history as she attempts to lead the Mercury to a WNBA-record tying fourth championship. Tickets to the Mercury’s IASIS Healthcare Rock the Pink Night game on Saturday, August 12, and the remaining three regular-season Mercury home games, can be purchased by calling 602.252.WNBA or by visiting PhoenixMercury.com.
