Picture - Mercury Slip Past Liberty Thanks to Late Free Throw

The game went down to the wire, tied 82-82 with 2.7 seconds to go before Sami Whitcomb fouled and sent Phoenix's Brianna Turner to the free-throw line.

Over eight ties and a dozen lead changes later, Mercury slipped past Liberty to survive the first round of the WNBA playoffs. 

The game went down to the wire, tied 82-82 with 2.7 seconds to go before Sami Whitcomb committed a shooting foul, sending Brianna Turner to the free-throw line with 0.4 seconds left. The Phoenix forward scored one of her two free throws, leading New York to call a timeout to piece together a plan to get a single shot off before the buzzer. 

Sabrina Ionescu lofted a 30-foot jumper following Mercury's 20-second timeout, but missed the three-point money shot.
