Both teams are capable of playing better offensively than what we saw tonight. Go Lynx!

Sparks at home a few days of rest. Probably out for revenge after tonight's treatment. LA by 7+

Which team can get a 20+ point lead and hold off a rally this time?

I think Sparks [easily] take Game 3. Being home will be more comfortable, the refs will be on their side & Magic will be in their heads before the game to win this one at home.

agree the first team to got up by 20 will just hold on enough to win by 1 or 2 in the closing seconds lol

I think a lot will depend on how the refs call the action in the paint. Minny is strongly dependent on scoring from Fowles and if Ogumwike continues to climb all over her and gets away with it Minny will have a big problem.

they won't easily take nothing 😂😂😂 it has been a fight and just because there in LA just means they switched states...the refs may be on their side...but may not...I don't see it as an easy victory for any side

Yeah, that's where I am at. I think anyone with a prediction at all is talking a bit out of their butts. Wink

What we know from the first two games is that both teams should have won running away the games they did win, yet the series could have easily been 2-0 at this point for either one. How to take what we have seen and make any sort of prediction at all based upon it...yeah, not gonna happen.

Chelsea on a roll. She's Magic on the floor. It's time for her to exude magic on and off the floor. See that big smile? That's Magic all the way. It's time for her to reveal herself all the way.

PS: 1st job - keep CP3 off the 3 pt line in shoot around. Then the Magic/Chelsea double threat to get her all the way in the game from the jump. Get Candace out of her own head. Left foot. Right foot. Pause. Repeat.

Alana/Odyssey/Chelsea vs Whay. GET IN HER HEAD!

GO SPARKS ALL THE WAY!!!

Maya always shows up in LA, thats why im scared to go to any games lol. The Sparks are 1-2 against Maya when I'm in the building. We have to lock down the supporting cast. Augustus can't get those open elbow jumpers and open threes. We can't allow Whalen to penatrate and set up her team for easy buckets. Syl will get hers also but we can't allow the rest of the team to get offensive rebounds and second chance points.Chelsea has to be smarter with the ball and Beard needs to stay out of foul trouble. Candace better post up like she's playing Uconn and/or take a step back when she's taking those long js. Nneka needs to attack Syl and keep looking for her shot, she's quicker than Syl and needs to take advantage on the high post. Easier said than done but I expect to LA focused and locked in from opening tip.

As a Mercury fan, I don't want either team to win but unfortunately that is not how it works. From personal observation of these teams and professional teams for many years, I think the edge goes to Minnesota. The Lynx are mentally stronger, IMO, than LA. And in close games, mental strength goes a long way.

The impact of a home crowd on the refs is real, but I don't think definitive in this case. It's more random than predetermined. All it takes is one shaky call at the wrong time, and the game changes.

As for Magic, I pretty much doubt the influence of any pregame talks or fiery speeches at this level. I always watch the pregame speeches from the coaches, and they sound just like the ones you hear in high school -- and only rarely do those have any impact. And these are professionals, who have heard these same speeches for 20 years.

The game will be decided by which team shoots the ball better, very likely. It's a make it or miss it sport, and if one team makes five more threes than the other, it's on the way to a win.

Nneka needs to show up this game. First 2 games sub par performances and playing as a role player did not help the team.

Voted Sparks , but idk why. I'm 0-for-2.


Alger's gotta be kicking himself after the last finish.
Beard had an outlet to Parker with 3/4s of the court + position, to track it down.
Gray just needed a "if they jump you" outlet back to Parker.
What if , what if ...

Interesting that espn2 just aired a 30 for 30 on Pat Summitt. I guess it was to fire Parker up!

Right before the game.

Only one team on the floor for the obligatory pre-game display of patriotism. The singer is a 16 year old operatic and pop singer.

A Brunson three is not great shot selection in a game of this importance.

The first foul on Maya was ticky tack but correct, the second....I thought they were going to give it to Augustus for her arm resting on Grays back.

3 games, 3 first quarters that weren't close. There has to be some viewer who turned on all three games and said "this one's over" and stopped watching.

I have the same feeling when I see a mid-game microphone in the face of Cheryl Reeve as I do when it is Grep Popvich - why didn't you just talk to an assistant coach instead? I don't want to see brooding terse answers from glorified gym teachers.
