Twitter can’t believe the wild WNBA Finals Game 2 ending as Mercury beat Sky

The Phoenix Mercury and Chicago Sky delivered an overtime thriller in Game 2 of the WNBA Finals and Twitter was losing its collective mind. 

After the Chicago Sky took Game 1 of the WNBA Finals on the road, the Phoenix Mercury knew they had to come up with a big answer on Wednesday night in Game 2. With some in-town basketball stars in Chris Paul, Devin Booker and Jae Crowder attending the game, you knew Diana Taurasi and the Mercury were ready to put on a show.

They indeed did that. In a back-and-forth affair, Phoenix appeared to have the game in hand but a missed free throw allowed the Sky to get the game-tying bucket before a botched play inbounding the ball forced overtime.

In the extra frame, though, things got even crazier. The Mercury again took another lead but a late turnover could’ve turned the tide. Instead, Taurasi notched a clutch steal, saved the ball from going out of bounds (at least, as the refs called it), and set up a key possession. Skylar Diggins-Smith then delivered the daggers, beating her defender off the dribble and taking it to the rack.

Chicago’s ensuing possession was fruitless and Phoenix was able to tie the best-of-5 series up at one game apiece. And as you’d expect, everyone was buzzing over that wild finish.
