There's no line yet, mainly due to many key players for the Seattle Storm questionable with COVID related issues. Stewart and Prince didn't play in the last game against the Mercury and possibly won't play here. Assuming those issues continue, you have to like the Phoenix Mercury getting the job done. That's two of the Storms top three scorers, and they lost to the Mercury on Wednesday by 20 points. Give me the Phoenix Mercury.
