PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Mercury were fined $10,000 on Tuesday by the WNBA for violating the league's rules on postgame media interview access following Game 4 of the WNBA Finals.
The Mercury's players - including stars Diana Taurasi, Brittney Griner and Skylar Diggins-Smith - didn't do interviews after Chicago's series-clinching 80-74 win on Sunday. The $10,000 fine is the biggest in league history for a media infraction.
