In her first game, Brittney Griner becomes first WNBA player to dunk twice in a game (VIDEO)

May 28, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

Apparently, since it was just her first game, word didn’t get out yet around the WNBA not to help off Brittney Griner.

The biggest name to hit the WNBA in years didn’t disappoint in her first game — she became the first WNBA player ever to dunk twice in one game (she is only third player in the league ever to dunk). Griner had 17 points and 3 rebounds in her debut.

Her Phoenix Mercury got routed by No. 2 overall pick Elena Delle Donne and her Chicago Sky 102-80, and both Griner’s dunks came in garbage time. Griner is great for marketing in the league, but building a winning team with and around her is a much bigger project.

    I thought they called the game by the rules in the WNBA? The dunk off the turnover, yea, I’ll give her that. The first video? That is like exactly what I would expect to see in a video entitled “this is what an illegal screen looks like”

      It’s like the NBA, but worse. That’s what the W stands for. Worse NBA.

    That’s what happens when you let a guy join a women’s league.

    Doesn’t the WNBA use a smaller basketball than The NBA?
