BRADENTON, Fla. — Jewell Loyd scored 20 points and Breanna Stewart added 15 points and Seattle used the second quarter to take control in a 74-68 win over Phoenix.

The Mercury's Phoenix’s Diana Taurasi left the game with 5:18 to go due to injury. She walked off the court to the locker room without assistance. The 38-year-old Taurasi underwent back surgery before the 2019 season, and hamstring problems limited her to six games last year. 

Brittney Griner led the Mercury with 20 points.
