Fever, Mercury advance to conference finals

What a heart-stopper and a screamer, tonight’s Mercury-Storm game. Phoenix came behind from a huge first-half deficit to win by two, 77-75, on a Candice Dupree putback.

Earlier, the Fever beat the Liberty 72-62, thanks as usual to monster performances by Tamika Catchings and Katie Douglas. They will play Atlanta in the next round.

The Lynx and Silver Stars face off tomorrow night to determine the other Western Conference finalist.
