Mercury win 10th game in a row without Diana Taurasi, Brittney Griner


The Phoenix Mercury are rolling, even in the absence of Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner.

Down by as much as 16 points in the second half, the Mercury came back in the final 3.8 seconds of the game to secure their 10th win in a row, beating the Atlanta Dream 76-75.

Shey Peddy stepped up big in place of Taurasi, leading the team with 18 points, three rebounds and three assists. She also knocked down three free throws with just over three seconds left to help secure the win.

Skylar Diggins-Smith led a third-quarter charge that cut the deficit to six heading into the fourth quarter. Helping to start a 12-3 run to end the game, the guard finished with 13 points, three rebounds and five assists.

The Mercury currently sit fourth in the league standings with a game against the Connecticut Sun, who are also on a 10-game win streak, on Saturday at 10 p.m. ET.
