Brittney Griner with a career night. 27 pts 18 reb to lead Mercury to their 2nd straight win vs Lynx, 92-79. Maya Moore had 36 in loss.— Sam Ficarro (@brodcaster4ESPN) June 19, 2014
It's hard to overshadow a 36-point performance by Maya Moore, but as Brittney Griner continues to grow as a player her career-highs of 27 points, 18 rebounds (including a career-high 5 offensive rebounds) really stood out in this game. She was both efficient and dominant; although she was only credited with 2 blocks there's little question that her presence in the middle had a defensive impact.
Diana Taurasi had a nice game herself with 22 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists.
