I'm assuming Jones starts. No word if Nurse will play. Might be ugly.

PG: Clarendon
SG: Jones/Walker
SF: Willoughby/Odom
PF: Zahui B/Holmes
C: Stokes/Shook

Nurse was New York's emergency point guard, so if she doesn't play we're essentially going with plans D, E or even F. Jones said in the post-game press conference that she's playing PG for the first time since high school. It definitely shows. Razz If Jazmine starts at SG, then my guess is that Odom becomes the third point guard since she actually began the college season as Duke's PG. Alternatively, Willoughby seems like the rookie most willing to handle the ball (after Sabrina) and she's probably the smartest. Will Jocelyn end up playing PG in the pro's after being a post player all year in college? Laughing

New York already leads the league in turnovers. Hopkins has his work cut out trying to get that number down.

remember it's positionless basketball now. Stokes can play PG. And I'm pretty sure Zahui thinks she could too!

BTW: did you hear the woman announcer with Peck the other day calling her something like zoohooey?

If the Mercury are real contenders, this shouldn't be close.

But man, I am bummed that we won't get a Diana/Sabrina match up. Here's to hoping it will happen at some point.

Hot prediction: Skylar nets 30 on her 30th

Griner should easily have a double-double. Zahui B. hasn't shown anything this season and is still a clunky mess inside.

Mercury usually play down to the level of their competition. Sometimes their talent gets the best of things no matter how uninspired the Mercury are playing.

Glad that Sabrina gets to stay in the Wubble and support her teammates.
Bagley got injured in training camp in the Bubble and soon after left.

Libery might win this game if every Mercury player fouls out...

Liberty 0-11 so far. This offense is ugly without Ionescu.

Kudos to Willoughby for posting up right before that last time. Pretty sad that the two bigs on the Liberty aren't willing to post up.

Liberty now 1-16. Zahui B has been such a disappointment this season.

She really thinks she's Steph Curry shooting all those threes.

Smith has GREAT footwork and body positioning. She's got a real future in this league. Once that offense comes, you have a really really good player.

Can we get Walker-Kimbrough back from Phoenix since they're not using her?
