Tough game tonight. Elena and Natasha are both going to have to pick up there game. Also, the whole team need there best defensive numbers tonight if there is going to be a Mystics win tonight.

I love the way Natasha is playing right now and I see Elena and Natasha are improving the way they play together. If Elena gets a double double (points and rebounds) tonight I pick a Mystics win. Team defense will be the key.

We just can't beat these Sparks it seems... They always put the clamps on Toliver and the rest of the team just can't muster enough additional offense.

They have a poor post defense, so if you’re up against against a team with a great post offense, good luck with that.

What in tarnation is going on in Hollywood!?! The Sparks are losing left & right! I was looking for Riquna to rain down fire & brimstone from beyond the arc against Las Lynx, then I see she was not even in attendance due to personal reasons?

The coaches & players need to get the U.S.S. Sparks righted and cruising through these turbulent WNBA seas once more. After all, are we on a championship drive or what!?!

They’ve started this game slow and defense has been lacking last few games, they look tired. They better get it together. Lol

Brian is gonna have to use the whole bench, and he looks like he is willing to do just that.

Alana did point out earlier that they are missing practice time to reinforce fundamentals because of the current tight game schedule.

They don't review a shot clock violation in game 5 of the finals, but better review this. Laughing

It is so amazing to me that fouls are called on Wash but not on LA. Parker fouled Taylor twice and Riquina fouled a Wash player twice but no call was made.

2nd period was terrible for the Mystics. Mystics 19 rebounds, Sparks 18, must do better. Elena 2 for 7 in shots, not good.

Double watch for Nneka (7 pts & 4 REBs) and Ace (6 pts & 5 REBs) after zero points for both in the first quarter.

trade Jantel for a big that can back up candace. even if she's not a scorer, play some defense. If GloJo's family wants her to get more minutes, she'll get them in LA. Laughing

Too many key Sparks players are out of rhythm offensively.

Clamps removed. Problem solved.

I was just assuming things would be back to normal once Nneka returned.
Nope.
They are underachieving badly right now.

Mystics team has to feel good with this win, while Elena had a sub par game.

Three days until we invade Seattle. The Sparks gotta take at least this last itty bitty game from the Storm. I mean, ya can't allow yourselves to be swept . . . again, can you? Then we have to beat up on Dallas - just because they are Dallas. Aces will be up next. I see no reason why we ought to help pup up A'ja's rookie of the year campaign. I don't care how tired the Sparks get - you cannot lose to the Fever . . . I could care less whatever statement Cappie wants to make.

These three straight losses gotta be atoned with four straight road wins. I mean, we are supposed to be on a championship drive, are we not?

the Lynx have to take advantage of likely another sparks loss to the Storm by beating Indiana and snatching that #4 spot

It's just how they play defense. Though usually they get away with it.

+20 at the free throw line makes up for a lot ...

My sense is that the Sparks, like a lot of veteran teams that have won titles, are essentially coasting until postseason, since nothing that they do in the meantime will really matter in terms of how their season is viewed.

I see the Las Lynx fans have come crawling out of the woodwork once more, feeling cocky again after their early humiliations. Keep chatting, folks. You have another showdown with the Ladies of LaLa coming up. Laughing

The Lynx are 8-2 in their last 10 games, which ties for the league best.

But they really do need to put out a better effort against the red-headed stepchildren of the league.

If they weren't so full of themselves they could have been 10-0.
