    Hurricane is moving in my general direction, power is going on and off, and the satellite is losing signal on and off. I hope I can watch this game. What a day for a hurricane!

    Mercury & Sun tied at 68, end of Q3. Mercury have really outplayed the Sun after falling way behind in the beginning. Griner with 25, Taurasi 20.

    Griner has 3 fouls, but Sun have worse foul troubles:
    A. Thomas 4
    J. Thomas 3
    Jones 3

    As the announcers said, Connecticut "poked the bear." Once Diana got motivated, she took over. Phoenix eliminated a 17-point lead. It's 70-70 early in the 4th.

    Diana's record in winner-take-all games is a sterling 10-0.

    DT and BG both playing at elite level. 74 to 74. Turning into quite a game

    Killer consecutive 3's from Mitchell, Taurasi & Curry - Mercury up 5 with 2:14 left!

    As Geno says, "It's not how many. It's when."

    Dee's deep shot has been off today. With 3:01 to go, she hits a trey to give her team a 4-point lead.

    This one and out stinks. I remember when the WNBA was trying to be like the NBA. Guess the league is really struggling.

    Despite today's result, this has still been a season to be proud of. I'm optimistic for next season.

    Congratulations Phoenix Mercury!! Keep it going. Get it done, one team and play at a time. No matter the outcome, I will still love you. A fan of Phoenix from day one (since one of my favorite players was the Coach - the one and only Cheryl Miller).

    Congratulations Connecticut Sun!! To all my Connecticut Sun fans, they had a great season. Last season, I felt the same way about the one and done rule.

    Took me half an hour to find this again so, not meaning to be mean to the Sun, who have come a long way and it should have been a 3 game series, but:

    The Sun lost the game at the Free Throw line; missing 9 FT's; and their three point shooting percentage. They were 4 - 6 on three point shots.

    My dad and I watched both games today, and he commented on how unsportsmanlike DT is. She's arguably the Goat of WBB but for that reason I prefer Maya Moore.
