Jones v. Fowles for world domination ought to be a good matchup. I suspect the veteran will have the edge due to experience, but Jones is getting really good.

Sun don't have lynx killer Bentley to hit 3's. Not so sure the Lynx are about to lose their first game.

Last time Fowles pushed her around like a ragdoll if remember correctly

They gotta lose eventually so why not against the only team that beat them twice in the regular season last year.

It is interesting how certain teams can pull off upsets like that. The Sparks always have a tough time with the Dream no matter how large the talent disparity. Lynx have struggled in the past against the Sun and sometimes the Mystics. I suspect in such cases it is lack of respect for the opponent leading to a "mail it in" mentality.

I don't think it's a lack of respect. I just think it's some teams have trouble with certain teams because of that teams players and styles of play. L

I would love it if J. Jones could shut down Fowles tonight. Maybe Banham goes off in her home town?

Looking forward to this game tonight. The standout trait that CT has displayed is their athleticism, which will be an intriguing matchup against the league's top team.

And the Sun look like a completely different team without Bentley stopping the basketball.

I see you Monty. Let's go Lynx! Courtney Williams is making herself a career here in the W. Phoenix should not have traded her.

It is. It's good to see someone challenging the Lynx.
I'm loving the Sun this season! Fun team to watch.

I see you Connecticut! It is pretty astounding how different games have been called this year. Personally, I like what the officiating crew is doing in the game, particularly compared to the ref fests we've been treated to this season.

Good sign for Banham that's she is showing some mid-range game. Big step. Great game in general.

The Sun should really look to trading Bentley. They play so much better without her & still have depth with Williams & Banham off the bench(once Tuck is healthy).

Lynx better hope they never meet the Sun in the finals. They'd be swept 0-3.

What a great game! The Lynx might win but the Sun are giving them a real run for their money.

If the Sun want to win they better foul so the Lynx don't get a 3

Ogwumike & Bentley to Chicago for Coates & their 2nd round pick?

I don't know why anyone thinks Ogwumike is ever going to play again. She's well into her post-playing career.
