Phoenix Mercury fall to the Wings late in 4th quarter

Spread the love

For the second-straight game, the Phoenix Mercury collapsed late, resulting in them slipping into a 1-4 hole to begin the 2023 season.

While the Mercury had plenty of chances to take home a win, it came down to poor rebounding in the second half.

Overall, Phoenix was outrebounded 15-4 on the offensive end and 35-22 on the defensive end.

Combining this with a massive free throw differential—14 to be exact—resulted in a disappointing fourth quarter collapse.

Fans reacted angrily to this overall poor performance and less than ideal 1-4 record early on.

There was also plenty of concern on the poor shooting night from Diana Taurasi.

The Mercury will now have a shot to respond as they take on the Dallas Wings once again on Friday. Tip-off will be at 5 p.m.
