The Minnesota Lynx are going to get the benefit of the doubt here because the Mercury are struggling, and they'll now be without Diana Taurasi for the remainder of the regular season. With that said, the Phoenix Mercury are still an experienced and talented team that knows what it takes to grind out wins this time of year. Let's not act like the Lynx are lighting the world on fire. Both teams are hit or miss. This is pretty much a playoff game, given how tight the standings are. I'll take a stab with the Mercury at home and the free points.
