I'm hoping the Lynx team that played LA and the Dream team that played Chicago are the ones that shows up. If it is the teams that played the Wings, it ain't gonna be pretty.

Maybe the Dream should consider re-enacting the Lynx championship banner ceremony. That might put the Lynx out of sorts again.

I doubt the championship banner ceremony had anything to do with it. All the Lynx have to do is see Sparks jerseys and they turn into a bunch scared 2-year old kids who are afraid of monsters and don't know how to play basketball. Maybe the Lynx will be stupid and forget Renee Montgomery isn't on their team anymore and she'll have 10 steals from the Lynx passing her the ball. Smile

Sorry Shades - the Lynx have already had 2 championship celebrations here in Atlanta. But, thanks for trying. I think now the job just got harder after they lost to the Mystakes. Plus, they will have the Gwinnett County Cult of Maya drowning out the cheers of Dream fans.

I have no excitement about the Lynx anymore so I'm not even making my usual outrage posts anymore because I'm accepting the fact now that Reeve is an overrated coach and/or lousy GM and probably destroyed any hope of the Lynx ever winning five (or more) titles.

Lynx just released an injury report and Fowles is questionable.

Especially without Syl, and combined with the way Minny-ites are playing (like old ladies) on the road, Atlanta has a good shot at a W...even with Montgomery as their starting PG and Angel still adjusting to her 'new' team.

The dream should run run run because the Lynx cant keep up with their perimeter players and Maya will have her hands full guarding Angel

I'm afraid that after their loss, this will be an "Empire Strikes Back" kind of game.

Minny-ites? That name sounds like some ancient tribe from Genesis. Laughing

The only hope for the Lynx is for the Storm to keep winning and the Lynx keep losing so the world knows that the Lynx would've been better off if Shades (as long as I get to be an assistant or an unpaid consultant) was named GM of the Lynx over Reeve. I believe that there should be a law that if you aren't able to prove you are even as smart as The Basement, and you do not manage to coerce a lottery pick from Michael Cooper or Draft Azura Stevens the following season, you must lose your job to The Basement.

This color commentator isn't the best. Clarendon fouls a driving DRob with 0.9 sec left in period. Commentator says "That wasn't the smartest foul". ATL had a foul to give, so it was a great foul. The Lynx couldn't do anything with that 0.9 sec.

15-11 MIN end of Q1

So it seems that for Atlanta fans twitter is not available. However, it is on League Pass.

Gotta love these commentators. Imani commits a clear as day moving screen and she was "just trying to get out of the way". And on the other end even though Fowles was perfectly set and the Dream player ran into her, it was a "missed call". Laughing

Must be great to be a perfectly objective observer with no interest in the outcome.

TBH - I would prefer it if there was a rule that announcers could not discuss calls. It adds nothing to the broadcast, and it makes the league look amatuerish when virtually every call gets questioned. Some teams' announcers are worse than others (Seattle, for ex) but this is just annoying after a while. Let the fans decide whether to get up in arms about calls at the game.

After the 2010 finals we should never be called for another moving screen. The league owes us.

Seems odd that Angel guards Augustus, while Hayes covers Moore. I would think the other way around.

Can't wait for Lynx to turn the ball over and Montgomery hit the game-winner for the Dream. Very Happy

Once again, with a foul to give and they don't use it. Dumb.

McCoughtry is working on her teammates to leave the refs alone and play. Surprised

I've just completed a telephone survey of the fans in the league about whether they wanted to get up in arms about ref calls at the game and they answering unanimously with a resounding "yes and no".

Whalen played less minutes than Robinson. Her minutes for last 3 games is 19, 21, 19. Could this be her farewell tour?

Box score reveals Lynx got more shots, baskets, 3's, assists and rebound, but lost at the line 9-11 vs. 16-20 for Dream.

Which usually means there's a quickness deficit involved ... note that the Dream guards got to the line 15 times and Lynx guards 3.
