Mercury to Face Lynx in Western Conference Finals
PHOENIX – The Phoenix Mercury advanced to the WNBA Western Conference Finals with tonight’s win against the Sparks in Los Angeles. Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals will take place on Friday, August 29 at 7 p.m at US Airways Center and tickets are on sale now, starting at $25.
The Mercury—looking for their third WNBA Championship in franchise history—advanced to the Conference Finals for the second consecutive year and the sixth time in the last eight years, and will play the Minnesota Lynx. The Mercury clinched homecourt advantage throughout the WNBA Playoffs thanks to a WNBA-record 29 regular season wins.
That homecourt advantage is thanks in part to the X-Factor who helped the Mercury to a franchise-best 16-1 (.941) record at US Airways Center this regular season and a current 16-game home winning streak.
