1. The Pheonix Mercury lost their first game after taking phenom Brittney Griner first overall, but Griner still made her mark:
2. Griner finished the game with 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 blocks, as well as these two dunks, the first of which she’s celebrating here.
3. Only two other players, Candace Parker and Lisa Leslie, have dunked in the history of the WNBA: Parker twice, Leslie once. Griner dunked twice in her FIRST GAME.
Making history in your first game: not a bad way to start a career.
