Dupree and Bonner lead Mercury over Liberty
Diana Taurasi added 17 points, nine assists and six rebounds for Phoenix (18-13), which is trying to lock down the third playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Mercury lead Seattle by three games and can clinch the third seed with one more win or a Storm loss. Seattle hosted Minnesota later Tuesday night.
The Mercury will visit Chicago before closing the regular season against San Antonio and Los Angeles.
While Phoenix is already in the postseason, New York (11-21) was eliminated from the playoff chase. This is only the second time in the past seven years that New York didn't make the postseason.
Katie Smith scored a season-high 17 points to lead the Liberty.
