Shey Peddy made a buzzer-beating three-pointer to earn the Phoenix Mercury an 85-84 come-from-behind victory over defending champions the Washington Mystics on Tuesday night in the first round of the WNBA playoffs.

Fifth-seeded Phoenix move on to play No 4 seed Minnesota on Thursday night in the second round.

Washington guard Leilani Mitchell went 1-of-2 from the free-throw line with 5.8 seconds to go for an 84-82 lead.

After a timeout, Diana Taurasi inbounded the ball to Skylar Diggins-Smith, who drove the lane and lofted a pass over the defense across the court to the corner. Peddy pump-faked to get her defender in the air and calmly beat the buzzer.
