I think Sparks win although Sun looked great last game. LA won both meetings in the regular season and just straight up have more weapons. Revenge will also be on their minds as they were swept by Connecticut last year.

I voted Sparks but I'm pulling big time for the Sun. Hoping Alyssa smokes them and that Hiedeman is the x-factor.

Oh, Nneka is out, but Wiese and TRP are back.

Ragged start. Is Gray gonna no show again against the Sun? Dubious start. LA does so much iso for Gray and Parker, not much fun to watch.

Connecticut started 0-5 from the floor but now they are ahead 10-6. January w/ a pair of 3's to get them going.

Nneka has looked a little off much of the year. I hope she recovers soon. Can L.A. deal with Connecticut's interior?

Connecticut is on a 20-2 run. This looks just like last year. They had a nice regular season, but I think it's time to blow up LA. Gray and Parker keep disappearing in the playoffs.

I called this one, watching Connecticut beating up Chicago. Never mind a revenge game from last year, LA just can't handle the playoff version of Connecticut, regardless of which players are on the floor.

LA showing a little bit of life in Q2, but they are in such a deep hole. Parker playing well now. Gray has been on the bench for quite a while.

January is bringing it. 8 pts on 3-3 shooting, leading them in scoring so far.

Maybe called it to soon. LA clawing back. Down only 29-23.

Oops. LA has to feel fairly good being this close, as poorly as they are shooting the ball.

Wait, Gray comes back in and Connecticut immediately starts building the lead up again.

You put a serious hex on LA. Lead now up to 16 at the half. Gray has been truly awful (again against Connecticut in the playoffs). She's trying to let Diggins-Smith off the hook w/ worst performance by an All-Star caliber player today.

Bonner has 12 pts/9 reb. Parker has 9 for LA.

I feel bad for Toliver having to comment on what is happening to her team. Guessing she has regrets opting out since she did it for health concerns but the bubble turned out to be the safest place on earth

Jasmine Thomas looking healthy again. That should make the Sun a more dangerous team going forward.

59-40 thru Q3. Should Las Vegas be worried about getting Connecticut in the semis?

Gray having the worst games I've ever seen from her. LA getting routed.
Did you see last year's playoffs. She was terrible throughout that series against the Sun.
