Pre-game info:

Rockin' And Rollin' Mercury Face Rivals Silver Stars, 7 p.m. AZT - SB Nation Arizona
The Phoenix Mercury are gelling and looking to win their third in a row. Coming off a 9-for-9 performance last game, forward Candice Dupree is hoping her stellar play can continue in a beat-down of the team's Western Conference Rivals, the Silver Stars.

Dupree Unware Of 14 In A Row And Impending Record - SB Nation Arizona
So, I guess if Candice doesn't hit her first two field goal attempts and therefore doesn't break the WNBA record for consecutive field goals made you can blame me. About two hours before tip, I asked to talk to Candice before she began he pre-game routine assuming that she was well aware of the situation. She wasn't.
