So far Griner being only 1-7 is the big story of this one.

Chicago giving Phoenix the business!! Leading 46-24 at the half. Copper is a force for the Sky. Phoenix has no answer for her.

What's the old saying, we have Kahleah Copper and the other team doesn't? Maybe I'm getting the players mixed up.
How a player from defensive rutgers became such a dynamic scorer (shooter) , wow

BTW...Sue Bird has a massive future ahead if she decides to hang up the uniform. She can get into coaching, modeling, TV work, writing books or articles, or acting. This lady is solid GOLD!

Copper played out of her darn mind that half. Wow!

She is electric and the crowd feeds off her energy.

Griner has been good in Q3. The entire rest of the Mercury are no shows this entire game.

Ruthy Hebard sighting! Has she played at all in the playoffs prior to just now?

Just keep Copper healthy. She will be playing overseas on Avenida(KLS team). I am sure she will take a break, as KLS is currently doing.

Not a whole lot to take away from a game like this. But DeShields finally got herself going somewhat, been a long time since that happened. That could be important if she can carry it forward from this game.

Somebody needs to tell DeShields she is no longer at Tennessee and stop forcing shots, making careless turnovers, and let some of her teammates get a chance to shoot. Ever since the starters left she has been shooting almost every time she gets the ball.

I agree, but who else on the floor can actually score? Evans and Brown are both useless. NDour-Fall and Hebard could maybe do something if they were delivered the ball in the right place, but neither of those guards is gonna do that. Phoenix's deep bench isn't quite as horrid as Chicago's deep bench, that's what the 4th quarter is teaching us.

Sure, right after I type that Brown hits a 3 and Hebard hits a long 2 as the shot clock was expiring.

edit--a bunch of contrarians...Hebard hit another jumper, Evans got a steal and nice pass ahead to NDour on the break, who got fouled

I think she should hunt her shot when she's playing with the bench group. Besides none of Phoenix's reserves could stay in front of her without fouling.

Minus one ill-advised quick 3, though she did a good job attacking and not settling for long jumpers.

Missed some bunnies tonight but in general she is much better when she attacks the rim.

I saw the score go by on the ticker. What on earth happened to the Mercury? 36-point loss. OUCH!

The series isn't over of course. Could it be possible Phoenix used up just about everything they had getting past Las Vegas, and there just wasn't enough left for the Finals? With injuries and lack of depth, it might have finally caught up with them. It seems like a long time ago, but this is a team that was fortunate to beat both New York and Seattle.

Dominant win by the Sky. Game 4 historically bodes well for Phoenix, as they won game 4 in 2007 and 2009 Finals.

On the flip side, this finals schedule is playing out exactly the same as Parker's first 2 finals. In all 3 finals, her team has won game 1 on the road, lost game 2 then won game 3 at home handily, but in her previous runs LA lost game 4 both times at home with a poor performance by Parker. We'll see if she can get over the game 4 hump and help lead the Sky to their first title.
