PHOENIX (AP) - Cappie Pondexter missed a game-winning tip-in at
the fourth-quarter buzzer then scored seven of her 23 points in
overtime to help the Phoenix Mercury escape with a 120-116 victory
over the Indiana Fever on Tuesday night in a wild opener of the
WNBA finals.
Penny Taylor scored 23 points and newly crowned league MVP Diana
Taurasi 22 for Phoenix in the highest-scoring game in WNBA history.
Katie Douglas tied it with a 3-pointer for Indiana with 7.1
seconds left in regulation, then scored eight in overtime for a
career playoff high 30 points. Ebony Hoffman had a career-high 27
on 12 of 14 shooting as the Fever set a franchise scoring record in
just the second 100-point game in the club's history
