Phoenix Mercury vs. Chicago brings together two of WNBA’s hottest teams

Phoenix Mercury guard Skylar Diggins-Smith (4) is WNBA Western Conference Player of the Week.  She averaged 27 points and six assists last week.

Two of the WNBA’s top three teams will meet on Tuesday when the Chicago Sky closes its season series against the Phoenix Mercury.

The Mercury, with a six-game win, could face a second straight game without center Brittney Griner due to an ankle injury. She is still listed as questionable and will not be returned, said coach Sandy Brondello.

Chicago (14-12) won for the third time in a row on Sunday and dominated in Seattle 107-75. The Sky has won two in a row and three since the Olympic break ended over defending champion Storm.
