WNBA playoff roundup: Phoenix finishes sweep of L.A.

  • Updated: August 25, 2014 - 12:06 AM

Brittney Griner scored 21 points, including a breakaway two-handed dunk, and the Phoenix Mercury cruised to a 93-68 victory over the host Los Angeles Sparks on Sunday night to complete a sweep in their Western Conference semifinals series.

Phoenix advanced to a matchup against the defending champion Lynx in the West finals.

Griner went 9-for-9 from the field, setting a WNBA playoff record for most field goals without a miss. The dunk was the fifth of her career, giving her nearly half of the 11 dunks in WNBA history.

Phoenix’s Diana Taurasi, coming off 34 points in Game 1, finished with nine points on 3-for-11 shooting.

Atlanta 92, Chicago 83: Angel McCoughtry scored a career-high 39 points, and the Dream defeated the host Sky to even their Eastern Conference playoff series at one victory apiece.

Game 3 is Tuesday in Atlanta, with the winner moving into the Eastern Conference finals against Indiana. Atlanta is the defending conference champion.

Elena Delle Donne scored 22 points for the Sky.
