On Saturday night, the Lynx played host to the Western Conference rival Phoenix Mercury. It was a huge game for the Mercury because it was All-Star center Brittney Griner’s first game back from suspension. The Lynx made it a point to shut Griner down, and by doing so, turned in one of their best defensive performances of the year. The Lynx held Phoenix to just 19-of-57 (33 percent) shooting and forced the Mercury to commit 20 turnovers. The Lynx beat the Mercury 71-56 and proved once again why they are one of the best teams in the Western Conference, as well as in the entire WNBA. Here are some of the best photos from Saturday night’s dominant victory.
