SHARE Mercury score last-second win

PHOENIX — It was a familiar story, with a twist. Jennifer Gillom saved Phoenix with the last shot. Only this time she didn't have to carry the whole load.

Gillom made a runner in the lane with 19 seconds to play, lifting the Mercury to a 63-62 win over the Detroit Shock. But she had to share star billing with Maria Stepanova and Michele Timms as Phoenix made up an 11-point deficit in the final 11:30. Stepanova had 14 points in the second half and finished with a career-high 20, hitting nine of 10 shots.

Gillom and Michele Timms each finished with 14 points. Astou Ndiaye-Diatta had 23 points and seven rebounds for the Shock (6-17). Wendy Palmer had 11 points, and Boyd scored 10.

STING 62, MYSTICS 60: Tammy Sutton-Brown's layup with 6.5 seconds left capped a 14-0 run as host Charlotte rallied past Washington.

The Mystics, who led 60-48 with 6:26 remaining, had a chance to tie, but Annie Burgess' runner in the lane at the buzzer missed. Sutton-Brown finished with 11 points and nine rebounds. Andrea Stinson scored 15, and Dawn Staley had 10 points and six steals for Charlotte (11-13).
