Elizabeth Williams must think she's playing against Wake Forest tonight

Atlanta on a surge, Las Vegas is about to punt this one away. Laimbeer sat Plum for too long in the second half and she couldn't get going again by the time he finally brought her back in. It's been pretty much Wilson and Cambage, haven't gotten much offense from anyone else.

78-74 Atlanta wins. They had 5 in double figures, LV only 2. Aces have lost 4 of their last 5 games.

Am I the only the only one that can’t root for the Aces unless they’re playin the sparks?
what if they are playing the Wings? I don't mind the Aces at all..... I pull for Hamby.

I only root for them because of Plum. Wilson is fun to watch but I wouldn't really pay attention to them if not for Kelsey.


After a nice debut, Prince had zero impact tonight. Colson and Rodgers barely played. Laimbeer continues to not push the right buttons with his perimeter rotation. Can anyone tell I don't like the job he's done coaching this season?

Seattle got off to a hot start, then went into one of their patented shooting slumps. LA has been in control most of the game, leading by 10 about 4 minutes til halftime. With a win Sparks would be 1 game ahead of the Aces for the #3 playoff seed, and get to avoid Washington.

Okay, where's @triaddukefan ? Chelsea Gray with a shake and bake, fade away jumper inside a second left to end the first half, pushes the lead to 15.

I don't think there have been many games where both Nneka and Parker have a good game, but LA is dangerous when they do. Tonight is one of those occasions. 34 points and 19 boards thru 3 quarters on 13-23 shooting. Gray approaching a double-double w/ 10 points and 9 assist. It's a blowout, 80-51. Howard trying to do too much, only 3-13 from the floor.

Just tuned in after the US Open. Did not expect this blowout. Outscored 62-17 in paint. Can't figure the Storm out.

Yeah Chiney and Vadeeva have 12 and 10 off the bench (9-13 combined shooting). Brown just now coming in for the first time. Sparks' frontcourt has absolutely bludgeoned the Storm.

Seattle isn't that hard to figure out. They have to force turnovers and score in transition. If they don't do that, they are in trouble. Their halfcourt defense isn't that great and their halfcourt offense...unless they get hot from 3 it's pretty awful.


edit--to clarify, Seattle's FG% defense isn't great. Forcing TOs is certainly one measure of playing defense, but not the only metric (or most important probably).

Jeez Brown is almost gonna hit double digits in only 5 minutes. I think LA is up to 74 points in the paint and they have a season high 102. Seattle has 66. Brutal.

Wow! Kia Nurse and Kelsey MItchell are having a shooting contest today. Both are at 20+ before halftime on a combined 19-23. That must be entertaining to watch.

EDD is having a rare off shooting game, but Meesseman is picking up the slack.

At halftime, Nurse has 28 on 11-14 and 6-9 behind the arc. Mitchell has 22 on 10-11 and 2-3 behind the arc. Holy shooting clinic Batman! Lib up 6 at the break.

Meesseman has 23 on 10-13 shooting, Arike on pace for another 30 point game, Mystics up 18 at the half.

Some players are finishing the season with a bang!

Sky and Sun in a shootout, 34-33 Chicago after 1Q. Sloot has 4 assists. Entered the game w/ 283, chasing 300 for the year w/ 2 games left.

They aren't stopping! Mitchell 37 points 13-14 overall 3-4 3's 8-12 FT.
Kia 41 points 16-19 overall 8-11 3's 1-1 FT.

This has to be the best individual duel between 2 players all year. Maybe not the 2 player you would expect. And this is with 3 minutes left in Q3 still.

Kia Nurse getting back at those who voted her overrated (she finished 3rd behind Parker and Plum).

Underrated or overrated? I'd heard about Parker, I didn't see Plum was 2nd on the list. Ouch.

Kia has 49 and Kelsey has 44 thru 3 quarters. If she doesn't have it already Kia is almost certainly gonna end up with the highest single game scorer of the season.

edit--they've missed a combined 4 shots, all behind the 3 point line, in 38 attempts. This is freaking ridiculous!

Oops, good catch. Fixed.

The "overrated" vote went like this:
Top result: Candace Parker, Sparks (20.5%)
Runners-up: Kelsey Plum (12.8%), Kia Nurse (10.3%)
Also receiving multiple votes (in descending order): Liz Cambage, Skylar Diggins-Smith, Arike Ogunbowale

I think the box scores are corrupted (I know WNBA and ESPN are saying the same thing) . I am watching the game on YES and Nurse does not have 49 or anything like that. She has not played all 30 minutes etc.
