Brittney Griner Uses Fast Break to Throw Down 1st Dunk in WNBA Playoff History

Brittney Griner continues to make WNBA history with her dunking ability.

The Phoenix Mercury star made it into the record books last year by becoming the first WNBA player to dunk twice during a game. It was only fitting that the 6'8" center became the first player to ever dunk in the WNBA playoffs.

During Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Los Angeles Sparks on Sunday, Griner turned a fast break into a historic moment by throwing down the first dunk in WNBA playoff history.

Griner finished the game with a playoff career-high 21 points to help the Mercury cruise to a 93-68 victory. The win earned Phoenix a spot in the Western Conference Finals.
