These 2 are going to get to know each other very well...

The first four games for Seattle (2 preseason and 2 regular season) are against Phoenix. For Phoenix it is 4 of their first 5 against Seattle (Dallas in the middle)

Will be interesting to see how many minutes DT/DB get. Ready to see some of the players fighting for a roster spot.

So not just a lineup, but a potential starting lineup. Gonna be very interesting to see how they set up their defense with Stewart at the 3. Do you want your tallest, longest player, who also happens to be your best rebounder and rim protector, chasing around small forwards? If not, do you really think Howard can do it? Or do we see a crapload of 2-3 zone? Hmm.

Storm playing Howard at center is just dumb. They have Hillsman available, why not throw her in?

Hillsman wasn't very good against the better centers in college. Why would it be any different in the pros?

The camp fodder for either team hasn't really done much.

Canada with 5 steals, but the Mercury bench just gave them the lead. Maybe they're not that bad after all?

I hope that when Clark is back with the team that Hughes will see that this is not a good starting line-up. Yes you can play it during games for stretches. Have Stewart on offense on the perimeter and Howard defending 3's but start with your traditional line-up pls

I wonder why Emliy Potter didn't play? Another post option for the Storm.

Coaches probably want to see the players they are serious about keeping.

Seattle coring Langhorne.Then acquiring Howard,and giving Minnesota the rights to swap 1st rd picks in 2019 was just asinine...Core a PF to play the center position Rolling Eyes..Play your best player who's a PF,at the small forward position Rolling Eyes
