TULSA, Okla. -- Brittney Griner blocked 11 shots to set a single-game WNBA record and added 21 points to lead the Phoenix Mercury to an 80-77 victory over the Tulsa Shock on Sunday.

The game came down to the final possession. Skylar Diggins drew a double team on an inbounds play and launched a contested shot that bounced off the rim and to Candice Dupree. Diana Taurasi cleared the ball into the frontcourt to end the game.

Penny Taylor went 10 for 10 on free throws to finish with 17 points for the Western Conference-leading Mercury (10-3), who had all five starters score in double figures in their seventh win in nine games. Taurasi and DeWanna Bonner chipped in 14 and Dupree had 11.

Diggins, Odyssey Sims and Glory Johnson scored 16 points apiece for Tulsa (6-9).

Lisa Leslie and Margo Dydek held the previous blocks record of 10.
