Washington Mystics vs Phoenix Mercury Preview
Mystics 15-10 vs Mercury 10-15
When: Thursday, July 14th, at 10:00p.m.
Where: Footprint Center
TV: Monumental, Bally Sports Arizona
Mercury: Briitney Griner (Out, Personal), Kia Nurse (Out, Knee)
Keep an eye on:
Attacking The Paint: No Brittney Griner due to a VERY unfortunate situation, No Tina Charles who is now in Seattle. That leaves Brianna Turner and Reshanda Gray as the only two bigs in the Mercury rotation that sees consistent minutes, and between them, they average 1.6 blocks per game while Washington leads the WNBA in FG percentage 0-3 feet, shooting 74.5 percent per game. It's not rocket science, look for Washington to attack the basket early and often.
Keep Feeding Delle Donne: is a no brainer. This is most spry she's looked since her MVP campaign in 2019. Over her last two games, both wins, Delle Donne is averaging 26 points, 5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists on 64 percent shooting from the field, a RIDICULOUS 66 percent from 3-point range and 88 percent from the free throw line. Basketball is a simple game, and in Washington's case, tonight against Phoenix, the game plan should be very simple.....find Delle Donne.
