Brittney Griner contributed 19 points for the Mercury, but a late 13-4 Dallas run kept the game out of reach.
Dallas will hope to extend their win streak when they face off against the Aces on Sunday. The Mercury will look to change course after back-to-back losses when they host the New York Liberty on Sunday.
