Time to put Dallas away and take the season series decisively. I like how Odyssey is coming into her own, but she has a tendency at times to race ahead of her teammates on fast breaks and get trapped amongst the defensive 'trees.' Sometimes you have to hold up and allow friendly rebounders to get into position before you shoot.

Riquna appears to be taking better advantage of the opportunities her teammates are affording her even if those opportunities are not translating into points as often as I would prefer as of yet. She has had so many shots go partway down the basket only to spin back out.

Jantel's effectiveness grows with increased minutes, and Brian will have a delicate balancing act deciding between her, Ace, Nneka, Tiffany, and newly arrived Sandrine.

Ace is reasserting herself more as a team leader the closer we draw to the playoffs. She and Neka are still gold chemistry-wise, but she seems to be really establishing a sweet rapport with newcomers Odyseey and Riquna as well.

Syd the Kid is being relegated more & more to mop-up duty, and she will need to do more than just deliver downtown bombs to stay on the court more often. Everyone is aware of her now since her early season explosion against the Mystics, and, consequently, she does not get much breathing space when she sets up beyond the arc.

Chelsea continues to fine tune her super heroine's cape as the post-season draws near. She has come into her own as a WNBA PG so quickly and, together with Ace, are good for offering up quite a few sizzling passes each game.

Nneka continues to be Nneka and, in the same tradition as retired Catch, brings relentless energy every single play.

Will they all mesh together well enough to repeat as champions this year?

You probably missed the intercepted pass she threw right before that block.

Dallas/Powers why are you shooting with 9 seconds left in the half with no shot clock. Rolling Eyes

Luckily Karmina got hit in the face to bail you guys out. Hopefully she isn't seriously hurt tho.

Parker gets her triple-double and then decides to take it easy in this game. Totally not an MVP-type.

Sparks need to mount one of their patented super defensive efforts in the 2bd half to pull this one out.

The poor things will have to actually use Wiese, and/or go to the big lineup where Parker or Nneka is the nominal 3. They'll survive.

Indeed, it was a great game for Glo! Not happy that it was against LA but I have to admit that I love watching her play.

These games are always intense because the teams match up quite well, scout the crap out of the opposing team and pose problems for each other. Dallas is relentless and you just can't give them any hope...lol! LA definitely misses Riquna and Essence and hopefully, can get them back soon while finding their road swag!

big win for Dallas!! Terrible loss for Los Angeles. Sun are now 2.5 games behind LA for 2nd place. Wings are now .5 behind New York for 6th and a game behind Phoenix for 5th.

Wings now in the drivers seat among the 4 teams (DAL, SEA, CHI, ATL) fighting for the last two playoff spots. They do have a sort of tough schedule with only 2 of 7 games against losing teams (ATL and CHI).

In both this game and the previous one Parker took too many early three. In this one I remember her taking an early long two pointer with three players on her. That really kills ball movement. Sort of is contagious and it resulted in other players doing the same thing. I guess they must believe that Dallas is the perfect team to pad your numbers against.

I know that having your post players shoot long jump shots is what is current in today's WNBA but I personally hate it. Clayk and I have discussed this before but I'm an old school basketball fan. I love watching Fowles dominate on the low block. She is just great at doing it. Parker can dominate on the low block too if she wanted to excel at it. Her quickness and mobility is better than most players her height. She can use this athletic advantage to dominate on the low block but she likes shooting those LONG jump shots. Rolling Eyes

It was a first half observation based on her body language. She was frequently watching on defense. A lot of minutes is expected from her so I suppose she conserves energy whenever she can. It's kinda odd to see compared to Maya, who never rests, especially in the first half.

Well one is in her 10th year and one is in her 6th i believe. Not saying that should make a difference but we all know the story when it comes to CP3's knees/legs. So the maya comparison is a no brainer , with fitness only that is! Maya's motor is unmatched in the WNBA imo.
