Great first hand report, thanks.Just back from the game... the Sun played with incredible intensity to open the game. They maintained it pretty well with the exception of that run the Mystics to open the 2nd half. Many Sun teams of the past would have wilted in the moment, but these guys finished strong against a scary-good Mystics team.
I haven't studied the box score, but my impression fresh from the Arena is that the starters worked great together and the attack was very balenced. They were more agressive to the hoop than they have been in a long time and actually drew a bunch of fouls. JJ played so physically strong tonight. Shows you there's still up side in her game. Special kudos to rookie Natisha Hiedeman who came in for Jas and gave the Sun a good pop.
Best crowd of the season. Not quite a sell out, but the crowd was really into it the whole way... loud and proud! Hope it came through on TV, 'cause there was TONS of energy in that building.
The Sun provide a number of opportunities for season ticket members to get a little closer to the team. With this group together for so long, I feel a real attachment to them as individuals. No matter what happens next, I'm very proud of them all. Good people.
