Isn't that a breakaway foul on Williams?

Should be Plum, but it'll probably be whoever they get in next year's draft.... although Coffey is looking pretty good in this game. Living up to the Coffey name.

Ogwumike inside the charge circle. She's playing with two fouls now.

Bone was pretty much useless in her few minutes. Sun looking very good so far. The combo of J Jones and Ogwumike could be very dangerous.

Use ESPN, .com is always slow updating their box scores.

Aces' can't get anything going this quarter. Doesn't seem to be any real leader on this team.

So maybe I was wrong and the Aces will be a lottery team this season.

Triple double watch for Alyssa Thomas. She's already up to 9 pts, 10 reb, 5 ast before the half.

The Aces rebounding, ball movement, and shot selection have been poor. Otherwise they've been doing alright.

I could get the Twitter feed on my computer, and I could Chromecast from PC, but the resolution was awful. Tried using iPad and phone, and got a message on both saying video was not available on device.

Did anyone else get that message? The Twitter feed to cast was so bad I couldn't watch the next game. Anyone else having issues?

I find the app to be buggy. Mine will keep telling me that I haven't bought a package yet but you just have to keep trying to load the vid.

I can get it on iPhone. Maybe because you had it running on other devices at the same time?

It came in really badly on my TV at first, but I restarted twitter and it worked ok after that.

I think they may be looking at players who can take care of the ball in the future Laughing

Schimmel's likely the first out whenever one of Jefferson, Plum or McBride is ready. Then Louis. I see Laimbeer keeping L. Allen for the season.

PG: Jefferson/Allen
SG: McBride/Plum
SF: Young/Coffey/Nared
PF: Wilson/Hamby
C: Swords/Bone/Park

Am I the only one who thought Swords look terrible out there? She might be on the Harrison bubble unless she steps up big time.

She looked better than Bone & Park. But for all of us that thought Vegas had a solid post rotation are probably rethinking that now.

Aces’ guard situation is not good. Having a couple guards miss the entire training camp during a compacted season is not good. Guard play affects post play. There should basically be little to no practice for most teams during the season, and those teams that do run the risk of wearing down their teams. It’s like one game every 2.7 days. Maybe Plum and McBride can catch up to speed with the rest of the team through osmosis, but it’s going to take some time, I’m afraid.

And, there is little proof as of yet that Plum is all that good.

Lots of minutes for lots of rookies who couldn't throw it in the ocean yesterday. It's going to take time. Too bad the season isn't 8 months long.
