This will be the second time that the WNBA All-Star Game will be hosted by the Phoenix Mercury. The last time the game was held in Phoenix was 2000, when the West took down the East, 73-61. Tina Thompson took home the MVP honors.
The Eastern Conference has only won the all-star game three times, so they will be looking to win their second game in the past three seasons and begin bucking the trend.
