Phoenix Mercury star Diana Taurasi flies home in time for birth of daughter


PHOENIX — Diana Taurasi made it back home in time to see her wife Penny Taylor give birth to a baby girl – the couple’s second child.

Taurasi flew back to Phoenix from Las Vegas immediately after helping the Mercury beat the Aces in Game 5 of their semifinal series. She had 14 of her 24 points in the fourth quarter of the 87-84 win on Friday night.

The league’s all-time leading scorer playfully said in a postgame interview to Taylor to “hold it in babe.”

Taurasi had a plane waiting for her for the short flight and then took a car straight to the hospital to see the birth. Taylor gave birth at 4:24 a.m. local time.
