Brittney Griner lost three games over the course of her final two college basketball seasons. She's now lost her last two games and in her first WNBA contest, Griner was overshadowed by the No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 Draft.

Griner flushed two dunks home, but finished with just 17 points and eight rebounds in 27 minutes. Chicago Sky forward Elena Della Donne's 22 points equaled the sixth-most points by a rookie in their debut and matched the difference in Phoenix's 102-80 loss.
