Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Brittney Griner scored 19 points and the Phoenix Mercury opened their season with an 81-64 win over the Seattle Storm on Saturday night.

DeWanna Bonner and Anete Jekabsone-Zogota added 11 points each as the Mercury led by as many as 22 in the wire-to-wire win.

Camille Little scored 14 to lead the Storm, who had a quick turnaround after dropping their season-opener to Los Angeles at home on Friday night.
