Kaela Davis has scored at 10 or more points in three of the last five games, including a season-high 13 points on July 9. Arike Ogunbowale, the league's leading rookie scorer for the month of July, has averaged 16.4 point this month and is the ninth leading scorer in the league.
The Mercury are led by 2019 WNBA scoring leaders DeWanna Bonner, 18.8 points per game, and Brittney Griner, 19.1 points per game.
