I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams in sloppy form, and look like the season may be getting away from both sides. With that said, the Phoenix Mercury are still clearly the more talented team, and they need to take advantage of games like this at home if they're going to make anything of this season. The Mercury also beat the Fever by 13 points a couple of weeks ago. Even with their underachieving ways and a defense that's heading in the wrong direction, I'm not giving up on the Mercury just yet. Give me the home team.
