Phoenix Mercury vs. Atlanta Dream
Won Wins? We’ll see after the last buzzer. Phoenix and Atlanta are both the same kind of team. Each team are missing big components in their roster and neither team has bounced back from the change. Erika de Souza and Izzy Castro Maques were game changers in the post area. Now that they are gone, the Dream are having a hard time replacing them. Phoenix is down Penny Taylor and she was a main part of the Phoenix offense and defense.
Not only are both teams short players but they are both short game makers. Diana Taurasi can’t do it by herself, she usually tag teamed with Penny Taylor to win games but now she has to do it by herself. Candice Dupree could step up into that spot but she isn’t consistent. If she consistent scored double digits and played like she has in the past few games the Mercury could bounce back from their loss. Angel McCoughtry tires to do it all herself but she can’t. Even when Lindsey Harding is involved deeply in the game, the Dream still don’t win.
