Time for the Storm to turn things around again

Looks like a sold-out game(lower bowl) to see Kelsey Plum. Wonder if being back in Washington will up her game at all.

Shades of Shoni Schimmel. Funny how this always happens to the Storm. As I recall, they blew out the Dream both times Shoni and her fans came to town. Would not be surprised to see that happen again.

As for Plum - well coming home seemed to help Banham last night. I'd love to see Plum go off finally, but I'm betting on the Storm.

Will San Antonio get its first win the same weekend Minny takes it first lost? Man, I hope not. C'mon, Storm - don't sleep on these guys. I don't know who the crowd will pull for, but the Storm would be wise to continue to talk up Whitcomb. The UW fanbase isn't what it was 7 years - however, if given the opportunity, Sami can make a positive impression on the current UW fans.

Plum's last outing at the Key was mostly forgettable...but if Michael Price isn't in the building, then maybe she and her side actually get some calls. I'm kidding. If Michael Price is there, he is every bit as likely to pick San Antonio and f*ck with the game just because he can.

Hopefully the Storm can stay focused because if we do, the game shouldn't be close.

The Storm promo caught Plum carrying the ball. But it's a call that is never made. Same with NBA.

Love that picture. I wonder if Whitcomb will do better than Plum today?

Officially this is not carrying the ball yet as her hand is not under the ball but on the side Wink

If they both get minutes, yes. Whitcomb's game is perfectly suited for her role on the Storm. As for Plum, who is reportedly still not fully recovered from her preseason injury--nobody knows what her role is for her team. Even if Plum hits some shots tonight, she would need help from teammates to keep our defense honest. Otherwise it would be easy enough for the Storm to sub in Quinn or Whitcomb to cover her.

Plum doesn't look that much taller than Moriah Jefferson and doesn't have Jefferson's long arms. I think Plum should be listed 5'7".

Overall, this is probably the worst played game I've seen all year.

Whitcomb leaves with a finger injury. Went to the locker room.

Sadly, I don't think it was even the worst played game I've seen in the last four hours.

With Plum, Jefferson, McBride and Currie, it screams '3-guard lineup'.The same type of system that Dan Hughes ran and the same system that VJ played in successfully. Idea

However, they keep trying to operate a traditional lineup with Alex Montgomery, and combining her with a ramping up Harrison and trending down DeSouza, and they can't do anything in the post. Shocked

They should just start Jefferson, Plum, McBride, Hamby and Harrison and just develop the players through playing time and forget about winning games... it's not like they've won any games anyways... Confused

Crap. I hope Whitcomb's injury isn't serious.

The oncourt postgame interview with Plum was just classic Kelsey. There aren't a lot of players who give interviews like that--never says the wrong thing but is so raw and candid and not spouting a bunch of clichés. And she did bring up that monster block from Stewie, making a joke about it at her own expense. lol

I agree if they want to develop for the future they should start the line up you suggest.

If they want to try and win games they should start (and play heavily) Jefferson, McBride, Currie, Harrison, Alexander.

There was a lot of cheering for Plum, but fortunately there wasn't much booing or jeering at the Storm - in that sense it was a lot nicer than when Shoni has been in Seattle.

It screams "these three don't fit together and don 't belong on the floor at the same time."

The ONLY thing this accomplishes is to take your best player and to play her out of position where she is ill suited to thrive just so you can give playing time to a pair of miniature guards who also don't belong together in the back court.

Face it, they blew their first pick in the draft. They needed to draft for position and even if we assume that Plum looked like the best prospect overall, she wasn't good enough to override their need for a 3, 4 or 5.

If they're going to waste minutes on a rookie just to get her some experience and an extended tryout, they ought to do it with Coffey and see if they can develop her into a small forward who can play. Then if they get to draft Wilson to play the 4, they might actually have something worthwhile for the future.
