At least a year too long.
Strangely, I was hoping they kept her another year. Her team was showing some growth and players who could score and run the floor to balance Mckowan. They were all getting better getting her the ball.
I wonder if Pokie knew yesterday.

Indiana didn't wait long in canning Pokey.
Missing the playoffs with 19 wins over the last 2 seasons won't buy you a lot of job security. She'll turn up somewhere else. Either at the WNBA or D-1 college level. Bye-bye Pokey. :D

In other news......The Atlanta Dream took a huge fall from grace this year. 21-8 last year (making the playoffs), to a league worst 8-26 this year. Heads may be on the chopping block there as well. :eek:

I am guessing a big factor was taking so long to get Teiera into the starting lineup.

In yesterdays Sky v Mystic game Gabby Williams was shown walking to the locker room with 1.03 left in the game. It looks like she was holding her right hip. She came out with 3.03 left in the game but I dont remember anything awkward with her in the game.

Indiana needs a true facilitator at the point. With the Mitchell's and Vivians next year at 2 and 3. Then Dupree and McCowan down low, they just need that distributor at the point. Wheeler is ok, but more of a scorer and too short to defend big guards.

As far as a coach goes, maybe Tamika would be interested.

I guess there is no time to rest for WNBA players. Karlie Samuelson played Sunday for Dallas in its final game and got on the plane the next day and was practicing with her new team in Spain on Tuesday. Oh to be young again.

How is this game close? No Taurasi, Griner went out w/ an injury, Bonner can't hit anything. This should be a blowout but it's a 3 point game at halftime.


Well to answer my own question 10 FTA for Phoenix to only just 3 for Chicago is somewhat of a factor.

12-0 run to start Q3 for Chicago. Griner tried to go w/ a knee brace but she's a bit hobbled and can't keep up w/ the pace of this game.

Did they say WHY Taurasi isn't playing? Just hasn't made enough progress or did she teak something again?

Briann January was huge in the 2nd quarter.

Also Lyttle made a couple of jumpers that Chicago was happy to let her shoot. And anothe here in the 3rd.

I can't believe they let her try it. She looked so gimpy in warmups. Clearly not moving right.

January just shoved Sloot to the floor, no call. Phoenix has about twice as many FTs as Chicago. Bonner draws a foul every time she touches the ball. Jeez, refs just kill me.

Lou should be coming in. Lets get some positive plays Lou.

Good tough D rebound in traffic
Nice assist instead of launching a shot.

Alanna Smith is in a boot on the Phoenix bench. That might explain why she hasn't been playing at all lately. I hadn't heard anything about her being injured.

Storm out to 11-4 lead. Hitting 3 3pt shots. and not even their snipers. Lynx in trouble. Pheesa changed her hair style a bit. More like Dantis. Hard to tell the difference. Head bang

Russell w/ back to back beautiful dishes for scores. She is so much more skilled overall than I realized.

18-9 Seattle, Loyd has 3 3's.
