Mercury, Wings Game Preview

The Phoenix Mercury (13-12) look to close out their road trip with a win as they take on the Dallas Wings (13-14) at College Park Center.

The Mercury who have dropped the first two of a three game road trip, could use a victory tonight before heading home to face Seattle.

In Sunday’s loss to Washington, the Mercury were led by Diana Taurasi who scored 16 points. Yvonne Turner added 15, while Monique Currie and Angel Robinson each tallied 14 points.

Dallas continues to make a late push winning back to back games at home as they aim to reach the .500 mark for the first time since July 5. The Wings took down the Los Angeles Sparks Sunday, in an 85-79 victory. Western Conference Player of the Week, Glory Johnson scored 23 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the win. Karima Christmas-Kelly finished with 17 points and Skylar Diggins-Smith added 14.
