The Mercury were up six points with just under 6:30 to play, but the altercation became the highlight of the first game of Phoenix's homestand, which ended with an 80-77 loss.

Brittney Griner, the 6-foot-9 All-Star center, brought an arm back and swung toward Wings forward Kristine Anigwe. But three more players, Diana Taurasi (Mercury), Briann January (Mercury), and Kaela Davis (Dallas), were also ejected for coming off the bench.

Griner and Anigwe were among six players ejected for the fourth-quarter incident following a video review.

"Today I went on the court to make sure my teammate didn't get jumped", Taurasi said after the game.

She immediately took off after Anigwe and throwing punches before she started back-pedaling away from her. "I would do that 100 times out of 100 times".

After an empty possession, the Mercury were forced to foul Ogunbowale, who finished with 23 points.

While the win puts the Wings 4.5 games behind the Mercury for the final playoff spot, it's unknown what kind of suspensions the WNBA may levy for what transpired.

It was the Wings' first road win since July 12, 2018 against the Los Angeles Sparks. Allisha Gray added 16 points. Griner had 13 points, including her 12th dunk in the regular season, on her bobblehead night.
