No Taurasi (suspended) or Lyttle. I guess we get to see if Musina is indeed with the team.

Can a player be in camp, but not signed? That pic from Twitter looked like she was in their training facility.

Laughing I thought it looked like it said FENER in the background so I assumed she took the pic at the Fenerbahce training facility.

Mitchell is still out and Griner is listed as doubtful (back). Mercury may only have 7 players tomorrow.

It looks like Griner is ready to go based on a big line move towards Phoenix as a favorite.

Ready to go but just out there right now

She has to get the ball to be effective. (Yes that includes rebs too)

Briann, can you not turn the ball over sis.

And who is suppose to guard Deshields?

Why is BG not getting the ball?

It appears Phoenix will sign someone right after the All-Star game to fit within the salary cap. Whether that will be Musina or a big is questionable, but starting Talbot over Little today may indicate they want more outside help.

Stocks is a total dolt...DD just dropped 15 points in the 1st quarter...Give her a rest.There's no reason for her to be starting the 2nd quarter.

I just.... I can't

BG can't get a call for her life when Dolson is guarding her. Pure trash

The foul on her was pure trash.

The Sky are kinda growing on me. They look like a team that should be winning more games than they have.

Phoenix needs to hit shots from the outside. Turner needs to be taking shots. She is the fastest on the team and should be creating shots instead of trying to drive into the giants. Outside shots will take the pressure off Griner.

So let's say these refs keep blowing their whistles in the second half. Griner, Little & January all foul out. Mercury will be forced to play Turner-Talbot-Bonner-Robinson-Gulich

Chicago’s scouting report for Phoenix must include Dolson trying anything to get Griner ejected Laughing

Phoenix might have to sign someone from the crowd to a 1-Hour contract to help with this game. Maybe they can afford that. Laughing

OK. I got home from work and turned on the game while they were reviewing the play (which they didn't show) that got BG ejected. WTH happened?

everybody's game plan against Phoenix should be to try to get Griner in foul trouble. She doesn't move her feet really well, but just kinda hovers waiting for the swat so jamming into her should draw some fouls.

Fouls are one thing but doing the most to get a player ejected is another.

Dolson falls to the floor not than the basketball does and they give her call after call. Its really trash. What kind of message are you sending to the Player's if you keep blowing the whistle on garbage.

DT ejected at home for B.S.
BG ejected at home for B.S.

Trash by the refs as usual

Why are we hard hedging when PHX is in the bonus and running almost exclusively a dribble drive offense? It's just asking for free throws

It's nothing new. I've always felt they dont officiate her fairly.

Other Phx fans just say it's her fault. I'm some fouls yes but the ejections are trash.

She's never really gotten ejected this much against 1 team and I feel the officiating has gotten worse over the years.

I had that thought too...but Sandy seems to love her anyway so maybe something's wrong with her.

One more game where the officials decided the game and I say this as someone who bet on the Sky to win the game outright. The Flagrant 2 on Griner was a joke. She has her arms up and moves her arm. Her elbow is in position so that it hits Dolson in the face. Foul yes, but not a flagrant 1, let alone a 2. And it ignores the two fouls by Dolson on the same possession.

Isn't an elbow to the face an automatic flagrant? Or am I thinking college?

I believe it is an automatic Flagrant.

However, I think what calbearman76 is saying, "Call it a foul and not a flagrant becauseshe didn't move her arms."

I'm hoping an as full-strength as can be PHX club takes their frustrations out on SEA on 7/31.

Figured this was a loss with no DT or FLB.

Sandy only plays Little 5 minutes. High five!

Sandy starts Talbot. Really...

Maybe she’ll replace her with DT...but still, the Robinson disrespect.

Yeah. I don’t think it has to be a flagrant two though.

And it would be nice if refs would call foul committed against Griner.

Merc down to like 3 players but people still bringing Brondello into the blame. How quickly people forget she had this team in top spot not long ago.

Special shout out to the so-called GOAT for her instrumental role in this loss. Hope the enjoyment of her little tantrums was worth it. Costing us wins is great ... hahahaha that's so Dee Rolling Eyes
