Brittney Griner is ejected in the third quarter after a scuffle with Cappie Pondexter following a collision. The Sky prevail past the Mercury on Jessica Breland's putback with 0.2 seconds remaining. (1:02)

Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner and Chicago Sky guard Cappie Pondexter were both ejected during the third quarter of Tuesday night's game.

Griner and Pondexter collided on a high screen with 9:33 left in the frame, and after teammates got between them, Griner pushed Pondexter in the head. Officials reviewed the play and called Pondexter for a flagrant foul 2.

Chicago would go on to win 79-77 on a Jessica Breland putback with 0.2 seconds left.

This marks the second time Griner has been ejected this month. She was tossed on July 1 for arguing with an official after picking up her fourth foul in a loss to the New York Liberty.
