Stewart vs EDD Cool but will they guard each other? Will Thomas be guarding Stewart? Stewart on Meesseman or Thomas and Clark probably on EDD.
I wouldnt mind to see a big line-up on the floor for little stretches. Swords vs Thomas, Stewart vs EDD and Langhorne vs Meesseman

Langhorne with two quick fouls. Swords making it look easy vs. Thomas.

Emma needs to start yelling at the refs from time to time.

I'm not sure to which play you are referring, but she is painfully polite. I think she needs a little nasty.

Nice standing ovation by everyone when Sue broke the record. I'm glad it happened in the first quarter, so the ceremony wasn't at a critical point.

Seems like every game, one of the Storm's big three - Loyd, Stewart, Bird - is flat. If they could get all three playing at the same time they'd be nearly unbeatable. Especially when Langhorne scores well too.

And Lewis still thinks she's a shooter, firing up quick shots even when she's rolling along at 1-5. Not sure what she's contributing. She's certainly not in for her defense.

Wow. Swords, Quinn, Clark, and Whitcomb give the Storm a 7 pt lead without any input from the big 3. Don't see that very often.

Stewart is sucking tonight, why not put Swords and Langhorne on the floor together?

Stewart is not sucking. There is more to basketball than FG%

eg. that play. Stewie gives Crystal an easy shot, and she blows it.

Toliver has missed the rim three times down the stretch here, but one may have been touched by Stewart, but even then - don't shoot with long-armed Stewart on you..

Seattle could use another perimeter defender. Clark just gives up too much height to a lot of players, EDD especially...

We might actually have a 14-20 team make the playoffs.

At least in this system, that will be the best record remaining. In 2010 the Connecticut Sun were 17-17 and missed the playoffs while the 14-20 San Antonio Stars and 13-21 Los Angeles Sparks made it.

Looks like I'm the only one who picked the Storm in this game... Knew Sue would have a big game, but thought it would also manifest into a win. Almost won in OT... Confused

I knew I should have just 'forgot' to put in picks and let it default to the home team pick. That's fugazi

They should have waited a little longer for that foul. Now the Storm will foul and still have time to score after the free throws.

Washington again lets no time go off the clock before they foul - in the backcourt. Oh, they go for it a 3rd time. Thibault must be getting paid by the minute in this game.

Fun coaching chess match at the end there. Too bad everyone made their free throws.

Seattle fans don't be dismayed by your loss. Chicago has your back.

Now alive for 40 more minutes. Storm and Mystics probably will end up 5 and 8, but not due to the Storm winning tonight. Storm lose close games to Atlanta and DC. Does not bode will for their playoff hopes.

Dream have a shot to win tomorrow night vs. Indiana. Sunday vs. Phoenix might be doubtful. The Storm game on Sunday may be meaningless if the Dream lose one of their games.

If only that were true - actually we play the Sparks tonight. (Perhaps you were looking at last week's schedule when we played the Fever on Sat. night.)
