Not Pretty, but It's a Win

In fact, the new group's play so frustrated Adams that, three minutes into the game, he ordered it to stop shooting from outside. "Do we have anybody around here that can shoot?" Adams asked.

"We looked pretty bad the whole game," Beard said. "But we're not going to remember that, because we won."

"We were desperate," said Chamique Holdsclaw, here getting triple-teamed. Mystics improved to 6-8. (Jonathan Newton -- The Washington Post)

Mystics Notes: Washington waived forward Petra Ujhelyi, who had remained on the injured list all season. The move leaves the Mystics with a roster spot, and they're looking at three players -- all guards or small forwards with WNBA experience -- as possibilities to fill it soon.

MERCURY 71, STING 59: Diana Taurasi had a career-high 29 points and made six three-pointers to lead visiting Phoenix.

"There was no answer for her," Charlotte Coach Trudi Lacey said.

The Mercury shot 73 percent from behind the arc. Taurasi was 6 of 7 from three-point range and Anna DeForge went 3 for 4.

MONARCHS 73, LIBERTY 47: Tangela Smith scored 17 points to lead host Sacramento to its third straight victory. New York has lost eight of nine since a 6-1 start.

STORM 76, SILVER STARS 52: Sue Bird scored 20 points and host Seattle used a dominating first half to coast to victory.
