Elena Delle Donne Hits Game-Winner Vs Mercury (VIDEO)

The rookie puts a lid on Phoenix.

Elena Delle Donne capped a nine-point fourth quarter rally with a game-winning jumper as time expired to beat the Mercury, 70-68, on Wednesday. The rookie sensation was originally intended to be a decoy, but the play didn’t develop and Delle Donne had to improvise. The East-leading Sky move to 8-1 in their last nine games.

    This was a solid game. The Mercury’s system is a mess tho.

    Does she have the potential to be the GOAT of the WNBA?

    That was a dope spin. I just never get teams who let the opponents best player have the ball and go one on one at the end of a game. She made a clean catch, dribbled 5 times, spun twice and no help came.

    I’m this close to watching WNBA on a consistent basis because of this woman and by close I mean the gap between the grand canyon close.


    That second spin move drugged that broomstick that was guarding her!

    Love her game! Is this what Rebecca Lobo could have been? Regardless, she is the real deal, a really special player. Just some weeks ago, she had tied the game on a curl for the three against the Lynx!

  • MrSuper

    Yep. She has that Larry Bird touch.

    Hypothetically, if Dirk was 6’5″ and they would go head to head she would probably cook him.

    I love when people celebrate with their teammates.
    Instead of having your teammates chase you like Steph Marbury did after he hit that game winner in the playoffs while with the Suns.

  • TBRK

    very similar players. She was the first female Dirk

    LOL, it’s Phoenix, I watch a Mercury game if it’s on and i happen to be flipping through the channels. This is only the 2nd one i’ve watched this year. But I know basketball better than pretty much anything else in my life, I can tell when a system is a mess.

    Lobo was more a pure post player. Della Donne handles the ball on the perimeter as well as getting to the post. Dellar Donne is like Dirk or Durant. Lobo woulda been like Al Jefferson or Zach Randolph for example.
