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

ESPN 3 games will be on tape delay I’d guess.

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.

Diamond off to a cold start...But still showing great effort on both ends of the court.

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).

Zahui b,Coleman,Rodgers,and Zellous need to pick up the slack.

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

Gabby is just too small to guard Zahui b or Russell.
