Taurasi is 86 points above Tamika Catchings on the list, and over 100 points ahead of the No. 4 player on the list, Katie Smith. While Taurasi may edge closer to that record or break it, her teammate Britney Griner is leading the league in scoring this season with 23.8 points per game.

Their Mercury team currently sits at 5-4 overall in the WNBA Western Division which is good for third-best. Only the top four teams make it to the postseason for the league.
