Hoping among other things that the Libs can keep DD out of the paint better than Indy could. Indy is the worst team in the WNBA at rim protection so I'd like to think the Libs will do better.

Chicago is also an underrated ball movement team even without Slooty. Quigley, Dolson, DD and Williams all move the ball and see the floor extremely well.

Not really sure what to expect between Stokes in a walking boot, the return of Boyd, the "what's up with Piph?", the thin post rotation, the utilization of Nurse, the utilization of Coleman, etc.

In my estimation the Liberty talent is pretty good, the versatility of matchups looks good and the defense should be better than last year given the increased size on the wings. However, there's a boatload of questions including that we don't have a great sense of roles, rotations or even tomorrow's starting lineup. Not to mention the health status of Boyd, Piph and Stokes. Championship teams, you know what their starting lineup will be and you usually have a sense of what the roles and responsibilities will be. On this team our depth is really good. Unfortunately, things like not knowing who the second-best player on the team will be makes everything hazy.

I chose DeShields on FanDuel, so you should expect a poor game from her.

Kia Vaughn is not. Kiah Stokes might not.

All non-national TV Libs games are on MSG. Apparently Dolan sees them as valuable enough to televise every available game. Confused

WNBA.com has Hartley, Rodgers, Z, Coleman and Charles. So now it’s wait and see till we find out what Stokes’ injury and prognosis will be.

I'm okay with Coleman at PF for this game as she'll be guarding Williams, assuming the Sky stick with the same starters from yesterday.

The full lineup change by Stocks is just stupid...Quigley was of fire...Taking her out of the game makes no sense.

On paper, honestly, tonight’s team isn’t very good. So no Piph or Boyd, leaving Nurse to play the 1.

Agreed. Hard to get into the flow of a game playing only 5-6 minutes at a stretch.

For NY, hoping it's not Tina or bust for offense. We have more options this season(well, not yet).

Liberty just can't go with Coleman or Zellous at PF with this big line-up for Chicago.

There’s a semi truck full of crow headed to the Liberty fans who were hating on Zahui. Toad, you get about half the truck.

Your posts are great. Just past one quarter into the first game of the season. Has Zahui B been named to the All Star team yet? I hope she has a wonderful year, but I don't believe we who were doubters need to be apologetic just yet.

They brought Russell back..i now see why she was cut & Zahui was kept. Diamond playing out of control this 1st half. Rookie ups and downs , Chicago is hanging in this one. They might exceed everyone's low expectations

yeah, Russell brought nothing offensively. She'll likely be around for Friday's game assuming everyone is still out/unavailable.

I'll be the first at the table if Zahui B continues to contribute. But her minutes will get cut once Stokes & Vaughn are ready.

Wouldn’t be too sure. She looks fantastic out there. Flies up and down the court.

Liberty up by 2 at the half. Nurse will be our X Factor this season, so hopefully her minutes don't get reduced once Prince is 100%. Russell proves some solid D inside, but offensively she looks useless. Zellous only played 6 minutes and never game back in during the 2nd quarter. Can't afford to lose anyone else.

She's had a good first half. Only 33 1/2 more strong games and she'll be an All Star. I will happily eat crow if that becomes true, but count me slightly skeptical.

Zahui looks to be in good physical condition. Regarding Nurse, not many rookies could swing between the 2 and 1. Nurse is doing it in her first game. In terms of IQ she is special in her understanding of the game.

I’m just happy she appears ready to contribute on a night when a depth contribution is needed, such as tonight. Baby steps lol.

If we can get a healthy 12 at whatever point I think our depth will be a major factor in our favor. As it is, tonight it’s keeping us going with 2 starters and 1 rotation player out.

Sky starting five all +/- minus for the half [-10 to -13]. Second "starters" all +/- plus for the half [+6 to +9].

Clear path fouls can be called when a passer is fouled? Is this new? Never seen it before.

This game just seems ugly. I just looked at the stats and at least Chicago is shooting the ball fairly well. But visually, just kind of ugh.
