The Sun really need to win this game or else they will be 0-2 on this back to back road trip. There is no way the Sun are beating LA tomorrow on the Sparks home court, and to make things even worse, the Sparks are on a 2 game losing streak and they'll be extra angry.

Can Seattle stop turning it over? Also maybe box out JJ?

Langhorne is on JJ so that Stewart doesnt get in foul trouble again. So i expect her to get a lot more offensive rebounds Laughing

First time in recent games that I haven't seen Alyssa Thomas be aggressive. Taking jumpshots?

If the Storm want a chance to win this game then Stewart has to be more agressive and take more shots

I think it A Thomas really asserted herself today, she could get that triple-double.

She probably needs to focus on defending Stewart because she is on fire

I'm surprised that we didn't get some sort of review. Laughing Though them discussing what they were going to make up was almost as long as one of their reviews Laughing

Get Stewart the ball and move out of the way. She hardly had any touches in this 2nd half Mad

Seattle needed Loyd shot to go down for some momentum. But they need to get Stewie some more touches.

KML is doing nothing, but missing shots. I don't know if I would want her out there right now. Maybe later in the season when she gets into rhythm.

Swords is good in the pick and roll. Dick Fain says that it why they got her "The ability to catch high and finish high in the pick and roll, which is what you need to do in the Jenny Boucek offense".

Jonquel Jones has more in common with Breanna Stewart than she does with the low post muscle centers. Jones is only a center in height, but a power forward in ability.

This is the second Seattle game in a row where I have seen Alysha Clark guarding the point guard.

Loyd needs to take less shots and Stewart more

I think this is the first game Boucek is using Swords in the pick and roll. Took long enough.

Three bad Seattle possessions in a row, then the offensive rebound.

I cannot stand the Seattle announcers ...

Really refs you are going to call that offensive foul in a tight game..

No question in my mind that was offensive ... Stewart displaced Williams when all she had to do was go straight up.

Doesn't matter if Williams wasn't balanced ... she has a right to her spot on the floor. And again, why did Stewart need to lean in? Just go straight up and there's nothing Williams can do.

IMO she flopped. Yes she has a right to her spot on the floor but IMO she felt the contact and just fell on the ground to get the ball. If this was Adams then everybody would of called her Floppy again

Stewart could have gotten away with one bump, but she just kept bumping a player she had the height advantage on (which I think makes the bumps look worse).

That game was there for the taking for the Storm but they couldn't score down the stretch.

Is this the next WNBA head coach?
Could Miller be getting too much credit for the good things happening lately?

Collen is mainly the defensive coach while Miller is mostly the offensive coach. Collen usually draws up defensive plays and vice verse. At least that's what I've seemed to notice.
