Brittney Griner stepped onto the court for the first time this season, starting the process of putting her domestic violence arrest behind her for good.
Maya Moore hit a 3-pointer, stole an inbounds pass and made a layup in the final minute to lift the Minnesota Lynx to their sixth straight victory, an 82-77 win over the Phoenix Mercury.
Minnesota Lynx guard Seimone Augustus left Sunday’s game against the Phoenix Mercury in the second quarter with a left ankle injury. Augustus landed awkwardly after defending DeWanna Bonner’s layup with 7:01 left in the second quarter and left the game. Her return is questionable. Augustus, who entered the game ranked 13th in the WNBA at 16.3 points per game, left the game with eight points on 4-for-5 shooting.
