The Libs are still in a fight with the Fever for worst record in the WNBA, the Libs can't afford to make a mistake winning this game.

It doesn’t matter as far as Indy goes. Indy has the best odds at #1 already locked up.

Now in the slim chance that Dallas doesn’t make the playoffs, there could be a battle between #3 & #4 with NYL & DAL. NYL are at 29 wins in the previous two seasons while DAL are at 30 wins.

This is why CHI and NYL fans should be cheering for the Aces to make the playoffs. If the Aces miss the playoffs, they’re a lock at second best odds at #1. I’m not sure what Laimbeer would do with #1.... maybe pick up that 6’7 strong rebounding machine from MSU? She wouldn’t have to take shots away from Wilson. Just rebound and put back most of her misses.

I totally have no idea where some of our players are health-wise or, more importantly, head-wise. Nneka has always seemed like the most energetic player on the court until her recent health issue. Alana can still harass the hell out of the likes of Diana . . . sometimes! However, I have been seriously hoping for Brian & Penny to seek to acquire a young defensive-minded wing to groom as Alana's replacement for the last few years.

Hosting the Liberty at Staples should provide the Sparks a chance to reset some of their recent struggles. The key is to drop no further than a #4 playoff seed ranking to maximize the chances for rest & refocus before the post season commences. This Sparks team firing on all cylinders can take down any squad in the league, but their focus and chemistry have been an issue all season long.

Right now? An easy pick, if she's there - KLS and she will be the rookie of the year. April 2019? We'll have to see how the bigs perform and improve during the college season. Write it down.. Laughing

Liberty might be with just 7 tonight.

https://twitter.com/DishNSwish/status/1029440528453173249?s=19

We really should have signed someone with the injured exemption. Tina's going to play 40 minutes again tonight.

Nneka is playing at about 1/2 her normal energy level. It's kind of a preview of how she will look at age 36. Sad to see. She's trying but.....Hopefully she will find out what the problem is and get it fixed soon!

Nneka should just sit for this game if she's still not 100%.

One of the reasons I am weary of moving up is while I like both Brown and McCowan and know we can use the size I'm not convinced they are elite, still pretty good with size might be enough.

OTOH I do think KLS and Durr will be elite at least on the offensive end. So staying 3/4 might make our choice easier and work out better. Now where I'm stuck is KLS VS Durr, I think both will be really good but I'm not convinced as most think that KLS will be better than Durr. Well I have all college season to worry about and debate this but my gut says Durr may be the next great scoring guard, while KLS I'm not as sure. OTOOH KLS is definitely more unique in size and skill set and might light it up.

Liberty win puts the Sun one game up on the Sparks with 2 to play and the Sun have the tie-break. Magic/Tragic number for CT vs. LA would be 1.

I always thought defensive position could only be established before or when a leaping player starts her jump.

Can someone remind me why Weise is on the team? I know she had an injury to begin the season but shes seen absolutely zero court time. I actually think she can be a nice role player for a different squad. Possible Back up PG. Agler waive her in the offseason draft a replacement and you know WHO better get on the phones !

Size is priority 1. Trust me on that. If there’s no chance to get one of the posts I’m interested in multiple players for different reasons. What I like about KLS is that she does two things...pass and run the floor...better than just about any player I can think of who shoots more than half her shots from 3. At this stage of college development I mean.

Interestingly if Dallas misses the playoffs, the Liberty can still get the third spot if they keep losing as the two teams are neck and neck in two-year record. Leave it to the Libs to ruin that by winning tonight. Laughing All that being said, I still can’t root for them to lose. I’m just too emotionally invested.

Nurse 7 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 BS and one time rolling on the for a loose ball. Something I wish the rest of them would do now and then. They got badly outhustled by Atlanta...playing its sixth game in 9 days. Embarrassing.

Someone needs to tell the Sparks that they have no shot at a lottery pick so they should just start trying to win their remaining games.

Mary Murphy is without a doubt the biggest homer in WBB. It’s irresponsible journalism and borders on making her a complete joke and completely unprofessional.

For her WNBA awards she voted Alana Beard DPOY. HUH? And her 6th POY is....Jordin Canada? What?

Riquna has played really good defense the last few games. She has been hustling more than any other Spark as well. What the Sparks had been lacking is not so much offense but hustle and defense. Sims often gets lost on switches and screens. I suspect it is defense that has put Williams on the floor and Sims on the bench.

Good grief! LA makes things difficult. Glad that they got the W! Good run for NY! They definitely played with a lot of heart! Tina really needs some kind of award for what she does for that team!

I'm wondering why the regression? Is she in the dog house or is she not fully healthy? What's the deal? This is definitely a different Sims than earlier in the season.

Hmm so I haven't moved to turned off the stream and it sounds like we may be getting some of the post game presser....Maybe

Another tight game with the team from Yonkers.

Tina says, "I love you, Candace!, but I am fixing to spoil your playoff seeding!!!"

We visit the Mystics in DC Friday night and close out the season in Uncasville on Sunday night. Will probably have to win both games to guarantee at least a #4 seeding.

What happens if Phoenix, La, and CT are all tied?

LA has the tie breaker over Phoenix
Phoenix has the tie breaker over CT
CT has the tie breaker over Phoenix

It’s definitely a possible situation. Phoenix plays Atlanta, who is missing Angel and then NY at home. Winnable games. They could easily end up 20 and 14.

And at least one of CT and LA can’t win more than 20, and neither have a cakewalk of an other game.

Race for 4th 6th and 8th could be on the line.


What happens if Phoenix, La, and CT are all tied?

LA has the tie breaker over Phoenix
Phoenix has the tie breaker over CT
CT has the tie breaker over Phoenix

If Connecticut beats LA, they'll own the three way on head-to-head. They'd be 4-2 against the others. LA owns the break over Phoenix, so they'd be next and the Merc would be the #6 seed.

If LA beats Connecticut and they all end up tied: The next tiebreaker is record against .500 or better teams. Luckily, we already know which teams those will be. Atlanta, Connecticut, LA, Minnesota, Phoenix, Seattle, and Washington will be .500 or better, the rest won't.

Currently the Sparks are 8-9 against those teams while the Merc and Sun are both 7-10. Any three way scenario would mean the Sun and Sparks each going 1-1 (since they play each other) while the Merc go 2-0. LA and Connecticut both have two games left against .500 or better teams while Phoenix has one. LA would win the tiebreaker at 9-10, Phoenix owns the break over Connecticut so they would be next, and the Sun would be the #6 seed.

If the Mystics went 0-3 and made it a 4 way...

That would mean Washington losing to LA, so LA would have to beat Connecticut to make it a 4-way. The Sparks would again win the tiebreaker as they would be 5-4 against the other three. The Mystics would go next, then the Merc, then the Sun.


Basically, the Sun don't want to be involved in any ties that include the Mercury. They own the head-to-head against both LA and Washington, but when you include Phoenix everything goes sour for them.

Thanks, pilight ... invaluable info as usual.

Good grief! LA makes things difficult. Glad that they got the W! Good run for NY! They definitely played with a lot of heart! Tina really needs some kind of award for what she does for that team!

O. Sims looking like a lost puppy on the bench. Has she even played tonight? Max wheeereeee !


I'm wondering why the regression? Is she in the dog house or is she not fully healthy? What's the deal? This is definitely a different Sims than earlier in the season.

Hmm so I haven't moved to turned off the stream and it sounds like we may be getting some of the post game presser....Maybe


She looks heavy and slower to me personally. But that's just via the eye test. She's the fastest player on a team that refuses to push tempo at its coach's behest.

The Sparks don't have the personnel to push tempo. Gray and Ogwumike are not fast. Parker only runs when she feels like it. Beard runs like a 36 year old who's had multiple knee surgeries, Lavender runs like an anvil.

As questionable as the Libs' outside shooting might be, I'd say they've missed more wide open outside shots this year than the last two years combined. Hartley hit open 3s last year. This year she bricks them. Sugar only hits open 3s when the game is no longer on the line. Piph leads the team in 3-point shooting. Zahui is second. Tina is third. Boyd is 4th. Even Nurse, a proven collegiate 3 point shooter and outstanding foul shooter, is bricking 3s with regularity. Not only is Sugar's 30.6 worse than last year, but if you take out the meaningless ones that she's made, she's well under 30.

Would a KLS have a domino effect on the rest of the lineup if she's the choice? She's obviously one of the purest shooters we've seen come out in recent years, but would that also have a positive effect on Nurse?

we have so much holes on this team but, its obvious what we need. consistent shooting. i like Nurse alot but when she's cold she's cold and when she's hot she can't miss. kinda reminds me of Sugar through the years of watching her inconsistency. lets hope Nurse doesn't have the same career as chucky Rodgers.

i'm starting to get warm on getting KLS next year. but need to see more of her next year and how she plays without Gabby.
