Dream fall to Mercury

PHOENIX – Three players scored in double-digits behind Renee Montgomery’s 17 points and Elizabeth Williams’ 15-point double-double, but it was not enough to hold off the Mercury as Phoenix won in a 77-68 decision on their home court Friday night.

 

Williams led the team heading into halftime with eight points and eight rebounds on her way to her first double-double of the season. She ended the night grabbing a season-high 11 boards and leading the team with four assists.

 

The Dream shot 42.9 percent from the field and outrebounded the Mercury 10-6 in the first quarter to lead by as many as 12 points. Sykes went 3-3 from the field to put up seven of her nine total points in the first five minutes of the game.

 

The Mercury’s shots started landing in the second quarter as they outscored the Dream 19-15 to close Atlanta’s lead. A close third frame helped the Dream hold an edge over the Mercury, but Phoenix tied up the game with eight minutes left in the game. The Mercury regained the lead at the seven-minute mark, with the go-ahead point coming from a three-pointer from Phoenix’s leading scorer, DeWanna Bonner.
