Playoff basketball is heating up as the summer winds down in the desert. That means the Phoenix Mercury are in the WNBA playoffs and looking for a third championship. On Sunday night the team swept the Los Angeles Sparks with a 93-68 win and will move on to the Western Conference Finals.
That isn’t the story though. The story is courtesy of Brittney Griner, who did something that has never happened in WNBA playoff history, and that is to dunk a basketball. Phoenix Suns guard Archie Goodwin tweeted this out earlier Sunday.
