The Lynx had a pretty good game beating the Phoenix Mercury. The Lynx had a huge team effort to cap off the Mercury. Seimone Augustus lead her team scoring 19 points. She had great court awareness and saw the entire floor throughout the game. She also grabbed 5 defensive rebounds.
Monica Wright had a spectacular game off the bench scoring 15 points. She was great on the defensive and offensive end. She grabbed 5 defensive rebounds and dished out 5 assists. I wasn’t expecting her to have a game like this but she did and it helped her team tremendously. If she continues to play like this the Lynx will continue to win.
Phoenix had a chance to win but they couldn’t cash in. Both Penny Taylor and Diana Taurasi were out due to injuries in this game and the intensity of this team showed those absences. Although these two were out, Charde Houston had no problem taking over the ball game. She scored a game high of 24 points. DeWanna Bonner also had a great game scoring 22 points. The Mercury’s biggest problem is their defense. They perform on the offensive end and on the defensive end they play terrible ball. They helped the lynx win this game by poor shot selection, terrible ball movement, and once again lack of defense.
