Cloud should be available. Bigger lift than it seems for the Mystics, who have struggled to hold leads recently without Toliver on the court, and since she is another option those games TRP does more harm than good.

The Fever have been playing well as of late, so I could see them winning this one, Cloud or not.

Gwathmey is starting. Anticipating career high from her tonight.

So far this is Thomas' best offensive performance of the season. Abandoned the post-ups and they're not missed at all.

Serious dance-off center court.

Additional 20 minute delay just announced.

They've just changed the name of the current arena from Verizon Center to Capital One. The money to repair the roof probably is being spent on new signs.

At least the jumbotron is still in the rafters. We hope that's a good sign that the game might resume.

Cap One must be so pissed their name is on this busted building.

Tonight's leak is in a different spot than the last one. It's near the baseline by the Fever bench.
Someone has suggested a half court game...

Ball rack and players on the court - 5 minute warmup, then hopefully resuming.

Career highs for Thomas and SWK. Good to see players stepping up at this point in the season.

Why did Larkins play less than 3 minutes?

Washington has a lot of talent. The coach needs to use the talent and make everyone on the team feel important and players need to take responsibility. I cannot wait for EDD to return but there has to be a realization, by the players, coach and EDD, the amount of talent on this team.

I will be watching to see when the team is losing will the players start looking to get the ball to EDD.

Healthy Mystics are probably the deepest team in the league and I'm sure Thibault is aware. Just need to build more chemistry between EDD and Emma, and figure out the rotations. Semifinals are the ceiling this season but watch out next year Exclamation

She's been injured all season (back, knee, leg). I wouldn't be shocked if she's like Bri and plans on 1 more then done.

It's interesting how Tiffany Mitchell can dance battle but not play in the game. Is the tank on in Indy?

I thought she was the one Gwathmey was chasing off the court after a short bit where she was mostly balancing on one leg?

In any case, I'm surprised Indiana did so well against a team that has Ivory Latta. Also, I propose that the final tie-breaker for positioning, instead of a coin toss, be a dance battle.

Gwathmey did chase Mitchell off the court. That old lady twerk dance she was doing wasn't helping Indiana at all so G. showed her to the bench. Laughing
