PHOENIX (AP) - All Hart graduate Taylor Lilley needed was an opportunity and once she got it, she posted the best game of her young WNBA career.

Lilley played just under 17 minutes and scored 14 points, draining 4-of-8 from 3-point range on Saturday night during the Phoenix Mercury's 116-84 rout of the Tulsa Shock.

Diana Taurasi and Candice Dupree scored 18 points each to lead the Mercury's offense.

Penny Taylor had 14 points and eight assists and Temeka Johnson and Nicole Ohlde added 11 each to help defending champion Phoenix (5-5) win consecutive games for the first time this season.

The Mercury's fast-paced offense led to plenty of easy baskets in transition and off rebounds, and Phoenix scored a franchise-record 59 points in the first half. The previous mark was 58, scored against the Shock on May 25.
