Aces and Wings sounds like a barbecue joint in Vegas or Lake Tahoe.

Skylar needs to remember how to play bball. She's stuck in her beauty/publicity routine and thought she could just turn up. YooHoo. Time to play ball!

JMO of course.

At the 1H, Aces scintillating the silk at 22%, getting outrebounded 29-19, and have only five assists.

Wilson couldn't be blamed for humming, "Take Me Home South Carolina, Take Me Home".

40-25 Wings at the half

I like the new BA stat. Wilson has 3 BA to Cambage’s 3 BS.

Wilson at 3-12 at halftime Shocked That ain't gonna do it for your main scoring option. Welcome to the bigs, rookie.

Thank goodness Hamby is done overseas now, so she can come back and save this team.

Just kidding. It’s just a preseason game.

Aces chipping away. Got the lead down to 6 mostly on Young’s back.

Cambage already up to 5 fouls midway through the third.

K. Davis is playing pretty shitty. Does he dare dump her?

Of course not... unless she’s also poor in practice.

Not impressed by SkyDiggs' numbers in the first three games.

Aces had no 3pt shooting, 0-2. That would have allowed the Wings to collapse all over Wilson and the paint. Nevertheless, while much of her team played like statues, Wilson almost had a double double (9/12)

Sad to have missed this one but stellar too see the box score and notice how Azura made a difference and also knocked down a three!!

Does LV need to grab a PG off the waiver wire (or trade for one) until Jefferson is ready?

DEcided to go to the game as our Mother is 900 miles away and we could call her on the way. Smile

Our observations: for all the purported drama queens/attitude issues/head cases/ball entitlement issues, we saw none. I watched a Wings team looking to share and having a great time together.

Liz Cambage is awesome, and she has instantly become my favorite player. Her string of O fouls were at the dirty play of Bone and the idiot sniveling of Bill laimbeer.

Azura Stevens is a stud! Her play all over the court is beautiful. She played the 3 the 4 on offense and defense. Frequently she drew Wilson and I’d say won the head-to-head battle on defense and offense. Totally excited for her potential but slightly nervous based on her collegiate reputation. I am inclined to believe that part of the issue at UConn is that Geno was trying to handcuff her abilities. She demonstrated poise, decision making restraint (except for one possible ill-advised shot that still rolled around the rim and nearly dropped) defense, rebounding prowess. The Sky is the limit, maybe intensity ( based on what I’ve read posted about her in college) is what hold’s her back.

Kayla Thornton, although only a +1 in the +/- is a beast and at this point for this team may be a better fit than Powers. We were commenting that it seems like we haven’t seen Powers since her rookie campaign so hopefully she’s improved and our recollection is a bit hazy. Defense and energy for her are through the roof.

Now they were saying we have one more cut. Going into the game I thought it’d be Breanna Lewis. But she looked leaner and stronger and played good defense. Hamblin is the only one who is slow and not a true athlete. Akhator seems to be in over her head and a redundancy. At least Ruth can shoot the 3 and clog the lane at the 5. Final cut should be akhator.

So excited for this season!

Great analysis! Glad you went to the game thanks for the observation. Azura is a magician im so excited to have her in dallas. I disagree on thornton being a better fit i would not compare her production to powers. They're both effective in different ways. Bre lewis vs Hamblin should be the real discussion although evelyn continues to ride her free pass.

I think there are still 2 cuts. Unless they suspend Plaisance for the season...

Dallas currently have 14 on the roster. Unless they full season suspend somebody, they should have two more cuts. IMO, it’s two more cuts between Shaqhator, Hamblin, and Lewis.
