Ejected in Brittney Griner-Kristine Anigwe Brawl

"It's a good road win".

Brittney Griner, the 6-foot-9 All-Star center, brought an arm back and swung toward Wings forward Kristine Anigwe.

The pop to the chops spurred Griner to deliver a windmill of blows Anigwe's way, sending Anigwe' running, and causing several other players to jump into the mix. "[Griner] got punched in the face and then someone ran on her back and threw punches at her face".

"Unfortunate about the fight", Wings coach Brian Agler said. "Doesn't help either team".

Griner and Anigwe were immediately ejected from the game, which Dallas won 80-77.

For Phoenix, Griner was ejected along with Briann January and Diana Taurasi, who wasn't active to play, but was in the middle of the scruffle. "It got out of hand, that's on the refs, they have to stop that earlier".

Still, the Wings were able to pull off the victory thanks to a solid offensive outing.

After an empty possession, the Mercury were forced to foul Ogunbowale, who finished with 23 points.

Allisha Gray added 16 points for the Wings (7-17).

The Wings were also stingy on defense, holding the Mercury to 36.7%. shooting.

Phoenix was leading 71-68 before the game was stopped following the fight, but lost all momentum as Dallas closed out the game on a 12-6 run to capture the win and snap an 18-game road losing streak. Griner had 13 points, including her 12th dunk in the regular season, on her bobblehead night.
