MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Brittney Griner stepped onto the court for the first time this season, starting the process of putting her domestic violence arrest behind her for good.

In some ways, the Minnesota Lynx feel like they made their season debuts on Saturday night as well.

Griner had 14 points and 11 rebounds in her first game back from a seven-game suspension, but it wasn't enough as the Phoenix Mercury lost to the Lynx 71-56 on Saturday night behind Maya Moore's 21 points.
