Rough game for Quigley. Finally hit a 3, making her 1-8. 5-15 overall. Just had a TO on a TERRIBLE pass. Somehow she's leading the Sky in +/- at 16. I ain't buying it.

Taurasi can play like garbage for 3 quarters and still win you a game in the 4th. Looked for a minute like she was trying to do it again.

Wow, we've had 2 buckets taken away after review on shot clock violations. One for each team. This last was huge. 7 point lead just changed to 4.

Refs suddenly realized game is almost over and they better start using their whistles. 3 fouls on Chicago in about 30 seconds.

Parker leading a 4 on 2 break...gets stripped and Phoenix layup on the other end. Another horrible decision by CP.

Not sure why Quigley is taking 17 shots when she's missing so many open looks. Sky need to create for Copper.

Merc w/ about 8 O boards on one possession. Come on Sky.

Ball off of Turner, refs calling it Phoenix ball. It's comical (well not really) how one sided this has been in Q4.

I think Quigley has been the MVP for Phoenix. Another terrible shot.

All whining aside, Chicago's failure to get a D board on the previous possession probably cost them the game. Now they are down 4 w/ 27.4 left. I exaggerated, but Phoenix had at least 3 and maybe 4 O boards on one trip down the court.

Quigley missed from about 35 feet. Shot clock wasn't expiring. 2-11 from 3. She's killing the Sky. Copper bails them out w/ O board and an and-1.

Seriously. Another awful shot by Quigley. Looks like Phoenix is going to take the W.

So...why have Taurasi inbounding there? Wouldn't you like to have her available to take the shot? Griner couldn't handle the pass, Sky couldn't get a shot off, we're going to OT.

Griner knocked Copper into Taurasi there. NO WAY that's a 4 point play. Refs are gonna make sure Phoenix ties the series up. Should've been an offensive foul on the screen and waive off the bucket.
Not sure how they could call a foul on Copper in that situation.

Chicago STILL has had their changes. Parker blows a bunny. She's been M.I.A. almost the entire 2nd half and OT.

Uh...yeah, that was a foul on DT on the steal. No call of course.

Yeah, Chicago had their chances. That missed shot by Candace hurt. Could have been a one point game. Moments like this, she has to take over or step up. But Chicago gotta regroup and come out for Game 3. Great win by Phoenix.

Serious homecooking but great game nonetheless. Taurasi and Diggins have come up huge in OT after a quiet first and 2nd half.

Chicago has to have better play from Parker and Quigley.

Phoenix needs much better from Diggins-Smith. She got a big layup at the end, but she was 5-18. She did have 12 assists.

Griner was dominating w/ 29 pts and 9 rebs, but I think the best player on the floor was Sloot. Put on another clinic on how to play PG.
