I watched the Mystics vs Mercury game the other day. And another of the Mercury's game that Turner played a lot in. Turner's playing time was based on how athletic her match up is at the 4. EDD burned Smith a few times, and then she burned Turner a whole lot more in the second half. But Turner is better on the perimeter defending. She was far more effective at staying in front of EDD compared to the other options, but no one was going to stop her that night.Fellow rookie Alanna Smith is averaging 7.5 min/game for the Merc. Last year Maria Gulich averaged 5.0 mpg as a rookie for Phoenix before being traded. It appears that is not the franchise to go to if you want a chance to develop as a young post player.
I think the Mercury are going to burn out during the playoffs. They play Bonner and Griner way too much.
