Good chance for a 3 game winning streak unless VJ reverts to player development mode. If the Storm hadn't gotten Stewart they would be fighting SAS for last place since they don't have much else.

NBA TV is not showing this game or the Sky game. They are re-running a Team World versus Team Africa game, which I would bet does get higher ratings, even if a re-run.

I would hope it's not showing on NBATV. That's why I reported it as being on Twitter.

Is it just me or does every Twitter game include either the Stars or the Fever?

Very poor star for the Storm. They seem to have no energy and they didn't put forth much of an effort yesterday. Playoff hopes may be fading.

How come Lloyd doesn't get the same call as Plum, they trying pad Plums statsπŸ˜‚

Then Plum fouls KNL worse than the call she got and KML gets nothing SMH

The Stars make sense. Haven't been a great team for a few years. Twitter was able to latch onto the Plum fever.

Fever? Might be your imagination. Where's that Twitter list?

The Fever had 3 in a row in July, that's probably it.

I'm so perplexed by the Storm. 3 borderline all stars in the starting lineup and below .500 on the season. It'll be a miracle if their coach survives this season.

to tell how awful the stars is, the ball dribblers keep running into their teammates. that's terrible offense execution.

hamby sucks.

this game should be advertised as 'horrible vs terrible'.

That was an awful lot of steps by Hamby.

Plum and Harrison aren't doing the pick-and-roll thing tonight. Oh wait, there's one.

Plum is having one of her best games . 18 points and 4 assists. Shooting 4-6 from 3pt range. But this game is hard to watch. Could be close to 40 TOs by the end of the game.

Plum is hitting threes tonight, but still struggling to hit 2-point shots.

Plum dribbled the entire possession, right until Whitcomb stole the ball from her.

Wow, 2 point game and Loyd just missed 4 free throws in a row.

3 point game and Whitcomb misses a free throw, Stewart rebounds, Loyd ties it with a 3.

It is only fitting. Seattle shoots 9-18 from the FT line, San Antonio commits 22 TOs. Why not go to Overtime.

Loyd and McBride have a long way to go before they become elite level players....I'd still take Taurasi in a big game over any of these greenhorns.Imagine Taurasi missing 4 consecutive free throws ?

Bad GM is too blame for their terrible bench
They could have had E Williams over KML
B Sykes over Swords , could still have Renee Montgomery also.. that's three quality compliment players they passed on.

Maybe, but GM's fire coaches - it's not the other way around.

Seattle was 10-20 from the line and 6-23 from three (26.1%). Rough night for Bird, 4 points on 1 for 8 shooting.

And that near turnover near the end of regulation. Bird was looking pretty human.
