Tomas starting. Old mouldering Tiboult. Evil or Very Mad Cant believe its the same slow game, as always. Nothing will change in this swamp Twisted Evil

Washington is going to be good. Of course against SAS, well, that won't be their biggest test. And what they do minus Meesman will also be interesting

Mystics seem to be playing well early on.

They would have a much bigger lead if they were converting their fast break opportunities. Of course, they haven't had that much time together yet.

Kristi has really made great strides as a WNBA PG.

Every Mystic is doing what they're supposed to do.

Cloud is where she will thrive - as a backcourt backup.

Krystal Thomas coming in to provide post D and occasional putback.

Tiana Hawkins is looking to have a strong year.

KTO & EDD doing what they do - now for the Mystics!

Mees is playing and shooting well.

SAS is getting killed on the boards, but keeping relatively close with the shooting and rebounding of Mo Currie, who looks in this game like the Black Maravich. I didn't hear why Harrison isn't playing.

EDD not handling the ball at all in this offense. I would think she could be a very effective high-low passer from the high post. Otherwise, the Mystics offense looks pretty good.

I'm already seeing the Stars with Wilson next season and some how trading for Coates (Coffey & Hamby for Coates?). Stars starters would be Jefferson-Plum-McBride-Wilson-Coates.

Yeah. This group on the floor is pretty scrappy. Add what is considerable offensive talent to this group and I think the Stars are going to be a pretty competitive bunch this year. Losing record for sure but at full strength I can think of a few teams I think are worse than them.

DC has yielded about 50% shooting in this game. Currie is pretty much on fire but whatever defensive questions there are about the Mystics, that's definitely a major early-season subplot.

The Mystics gotta get used to playing together, but they have the makings of a definite contender already.

Is still see them ending up with the #1 pick.

The KT/EDD combo is deadly. Some of the play design had EDD moving subtly into open spaces to catch and shoot. You have to guard them so far out, it's next to impossible to defend everyone.

Yeah its too early after 1 win to a Stars team with no Stars to be all crazy about the Mystics. What i do know is that they need to fix their defense because else EDD will be too exposed and get into foul trouble too much

The outcome would've been the same with the Mystics winning and Mo Currie scoring less points.

How was the bus ride? Do you expect to have more of them?

I watched with interest the Thibault's offense with interest for the first time and I was intrigued with his no set play offense. I am curious what other people think of it. I think I like it. I know people will see how well Elena can pass the ball.

The Mystics defense i was disappointed with but I believe it will get better. I saw Elena leave her responsibile player in a man on man defense and get burnt on it twice.

I enjoyed watching the offense work. I think they will be a potent force. Especially if Hill and Tolly and Ivory and whoever else can make threes at a good enough clip. Very hard to guard. Was surprised to see T.Hawkins kinda stink it up after nice preseason, but maybe that was part of the Meeseman return. If she can play at a high enough level during Meese's absence, they will continue to score points. A healthy EDD is so much fun to watch, and I loved that she didn't have to go one-on-one all the time as she was doing in Chicago.

And defense will be the big question mark all year.

there are some doubts after this win.
1) 8/19 3pt by Stars. Really? 8 3pointers from the team, that was held to just 5 attempts a night before? without its best 3 perimeter players. Then what will do with DC defense teams, that are much more dangerous from behind the arc? Help defense didn't work properly.
2) 5 fouls by EDD. Also bad sign vs very modest frontcourt. Emma/EDD foul troubles could be a trend for upcoming season.
3. Latta. Looked lost. She is unbelievable big heart player, but in this game, as a leader of second unit scoring, Ivory only was remembered by stupid TO's (ok, one was because of refs mistake). Also very often got in trap Asia Taylor.

I'm personally didn't like ball movement - a long way to go for this squad to build chemistry on the floor. DC didn't have good plays for corner 3pt shots, a lot of penetration should have been finished with pass to open sharpshooters, but Hill and TRP preferred to make difficult lay-ups (thanks to refs mercy - a lot of good calls for home side). Mostly offense was carried by EDD's unreal talent advantage over her defenders.
