In the game here the Mercury have to figure out how to get back on the winning path. Yes, the Mercury have done good overall, but as of late the Mercury have slipped and struggled. Look for the Mercury to come in playing better and that will make it easier for the Phoenix team to secure the win in this game as the Liberty are not that good of a team overall, but a horrible team on the road this year. Final Score Prediction, Phoenix Mercury win but fail to cover 82-77.
