Kind of an odd start time - seems too early in the season for Kid Day. Go Dream.

The dream have a bit more work to do , from what i saw from them sunday here in Dallas they dont have a clue of what type of team they want to be . The post game most definitely needs some help , but Chicago is not that strong down low so they might have a better shot here . Priority for coach Collen should be to get Angel to buy in , She was not receptive nor did she seem to be paying attention to Coach Collen alot during Sundays game in timeouts. She pretty much was in her own world on her own island the whole entire time. Tiffany hayes was the biggest crybaby ive ever seen , to much complaining and not enough working .

If the Sky can turn the Dream to a half court, jump shooting team then the Sky should win this game.

Hayes vs Quigley should be a fun matchup. Hayes has the speed and agility to lock and trail after Allie off of those screens.

If Angel is fully locked in then the Sky will not win this game.

Led by Breland' hot hand (5-14) the Dream posts combined for 5-27 against the Wings. Williams was 1-10, while the backups DD, IMS, and Billings were all 0-1. Some of that was due to Cambage, but this problem was around last year as well - the Dream kept forcing the ball inside, but there was often little to show for it. When you get right down to it, Williams is not a very good offensive player, so they should just give up on that or see if she can hit from further our. Dolson is no Cambage, but last year Williams struggled to contain her. So something has to be done about that. Despite her 2 ASG appearances, Williams is in the bottom half of WNBA centers this season, and has real problems against that bigger posts - Griner, Cambage, Jones, Fowles, Dolson and even K. Thomas.

Unless the Dream can get more from Williams and slow down Dolson, this game probably will not go our way no matter what Angel, Tip and Brittany do. BTW - it seems to me another problem is that Angel, Tip and Brittany are all kind of the same player - primarily a slasher who can sometimes hit from outside - so they are all going for the same space and either get in each others way, or simply stand on the sidelines and watch the other.

Fortunately, for us, the Sky have their own issues so it should be close.

They don’t show up on WNBA.com stats, so I’m guessing they haven’t seen court time yet. So of the rookies who have had the opportunity to score....

Hayes often plays like a rookie. She only knows 1 pace and forces shots because of that

Diamond can build a house with the first half that she's having.

Hoping for a better 2nd half.

She needs to take it to the basket more but is probably a bit intimidated by Angels defense.

I don't believe DD is intimidated...She just has a tendency to settle for too many jump shots...But I do agree with you...DD needs to drive the ball to the basket.

The lack of adjustments from Chicago is hilarious. How many post ups leading to turnovers do you need to see before you stop trying to do that?

No way a player can ever find a Rhythm to the game if they are being subbed out every TV timeout. I think its safe to say this is the Chicago team we all expected to see.

In hindsight, I feel like the people who voted for Chicago were saying more about what they think of the Dream than what they think of the Sky.

Agreed, I really don't know why twice as many people thought the Sky were going to win this game. Laughing

Stocks must to do a better job of making in-game adjustments,leaving the hot hand in the game,and putting different lineups on the court to keep the opposition guessing.

That's the problem...Hopkins/Williams should be coming off the bench...Faulkner/Parker should be starting.

Was rooting for the Sky but nice that Collen got her first win.

The problem with trying to tire out another team with your depth is that foul shots stop the game so much. Change foul shots to automatic points awarded and every team would be doing line changes like hockey. But Chicago could try and be constantly moving on offense and always pressuring the ball on defense to force the opposing team to be more active.

The Williams power forward experiment should end as soon as possible. Geno was able to get away with her playing that position in college but the WNBA is a totally different animal.
The Sky has two big hungry post players that are ready to work hard and show what they can do. As long as Stocks plays undersized Williams at the power forward position the Sky will be at a disadvantage against most teams in the WNBA.

The roster is not well-constructed. You would like to have one of Dolson/Coates and one of DeShields/Williams -- but since you don't, it seems like playing three of the four at any given time makes the most sense. (This of course assumes that Coates will eventually be a legit WNBA starter, which may or may not be true.)

The Sky have two big hungry post players on the bench that are ready to chomp down on some rebounds like some sistas at a Chinese restaurant buffet. Feed them big women. FEED THEM!
