Shane’s Free Pick

Taurasi looked impressive in the last game and she has a ton of confidence heading into this game. The Mercury scored 91 points in the last game and they are going to have no issue running up the score again here. The Storm’s defense has been awful all season and they are going to struggle to defend here. They just won’t have the offense to keep up and Phoenix will get the job done. Back the Mercury against the spread.
