The Mercury were missing center Brittney Griner, who was out with a sprained left knee. It was only the second game Griner has missed since injuring the knee in early June.

DeLisha Milton-Jones added 16 and Shenise Johnson, Jane Appel and Danielle Robinson each had 13 for the Silver Stars (4-8), who snapped a three-game losing streak and won for the second time in nine games overall.

Candice Dupree scored 22 points and Diane Taurasi had 20 before fouling out with 2:39 to go for the Mercury (8-6), who have lost two straight after winning five in a row.

Penny Taylor's two free throws with 8:19 left gave Phoenix its final lead, 70-69, with 8:19 left. But Adams scored five straight points and Taurasi committed three fouls to foul out of the game and also had a turnover in a 96-second span as the Silver Stars opened an 83-75 lead.
