One bright spot for the Shock was rookie center Liz Cambage, who led the team with 16 points and six boards. She had five turnovers, however, and fouled out.
Ivory Latta and Amber Holt both scored in double digits as well for the Shock.
Dianna Taurasi and DeWanna Bonner combined for 48 points for the Mercury.
The Shock have five games remaining, beginning with a 7 p.m. showdown against Seattle on Friday.
