Taurasi Takes Over in OT to Lift Mercury Over Sky (91-86, OT) & Even WNBA Finals at 1-1

We’re all square in the WNBA Finals. After Chicago took Game 1, the Mercury were resilient in Game 2 with an overtime victory full of excitement. The Sky forced OT at 79-all with a late bucket by Courtney Vandersloot, but it was all Diana Taurasi in the extra period. Taurasi hit two 3s and tallied eight points to secure the win. She finished with 20 points on the night. Phoenix’s Brittney Griner led all scorers with 29 points and 9 rebounds, including the first dunk in WNBA Finals history.
