    The Mercury remains in the Playoffs running and despite a whirlwind season, the growth of some players has put them in ascension. They will head into this game with a record of 15 wins and 20 losses, picking up a crucial 86-74 win against Wings as Diamond DeShields scored 24 points.

    WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

    Mercury remains in the race

    Despite missing Brittney Griner, the fallout with Skylar Diggins-Smith, the departure of Tina Charles, and the Regular Season-ending injury to Diana Taurasi, the Mercury remains in Playoffs contention. The trio of DeShields, Peddy, and Cunningham have played hero since the beginning of the month, and this has been the key fixture for the team. meanwhile, their defense has shown slight improvements too. The Mercury are by no means looking like a deep Playoff team but a win here can allow them to seal seventh/eigth spot, but nothing is guaranteed.

    Sky-high

    Although the last two losses have hurt the chances of the Sky finishing at the top, they remain one of the best defensive and a well-rounded squad. Having Emma Messeman and Candace Parker provides an all-around acumen to the team whereas Courtney Vandersloot has been on fire on the offensive end, adding great scoring alongside passing. This is a team with the best bench in the league, loaded on all positions and it will be surprising if they don’t reach the Finals at least. They have too many tools to decipher oppositions.
