Clutch hit after clutch shot down the stretch of Game 2 of the WNBA Finals between the Phoenix Mercury and Chicago Sky, making basketball a must-see.
When it seemed that the Mercurys had culminated their return, the escort of Sky Courtney Vandersloot pointed in a clutch tray that forced the overtime. However, in the extra period, Mercury made sure they took care of things the second time around.
His starting guard Skylar Diggins-Smith had the eventual winner of the game.
The 91-86 victory for the Mercury helps them tie the series 1-1.
Brittney Griner dominated, tying her career playoff record with 29 points on 12 of 19 shooting from the field. Diana Taurasi, recently crowned GOAT of the WNBA, scored 18 of her 20 points in the second half, while Diggins-Smith, in addition to the game winner, posted a near triple-double with 13 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds.
The back-and-forth action got Twitter buzzing, drawing the gazes of WNBA and NBA players, past and present.
Excellent @wnba endgame game. Both teams played very well … even series!
