We are going to see even more small ball from the Sparks Laughing

Ogwumike will have to play all 40 minutes at center. Beard and Carson will split time at PF. I wonder if the Sparks have an exemption player coming in? Bass? Jensen?

So we are without the services of one of our two Batwomen now? One or more of our Robins need to step it up. Whatever happens I definitely don't want to see them roll over & die tomorrow. Let Las Lynx know they're in a fight regardless of who's out.

Intense rivalry between Lynx, Sparks resumes in WNBA season-opener

Quote:
With no hesitation, Cheryl Reeve’s answer was: yes.

This is the best rivalry Reeve has been a part of in her 17 years as a WNBA assistant or head coach. When the Lynx open the regular season Sunday at Target Center against the Los Angeles Sparks team they beat in Game 5 of last year’s finals, it will be another chapter — the 17th in two-plus seasons — in what has become the league’s best matchup.

“This has probably gone to a level I have not seen,’’ Reeve said.

This is saying something. Reeve was an assistant with the Detroit Shock when a simmering rivalry broke into a legendary brawl between Detroit and Los Angeles back in 2008.

Reeve knows rivalries.


Quote:
Nneka Ogwumike’s late-game put-back in Game 5 in 2016 gave the Sparks the title. Any number of Lynx players have pointed to that outcome — and the way it happened — as a driving force last season.

In Game 5 at Williams Arena last fall, with the Sparks closing fast, Maya Moore hit a runner with 26 seconds left to ice the game. In a recent tweet, Sparks star Candace Parker said that shot is on a shortlist of basketball “vomit’’ moments, stinging shots that she’ll never forget.

“As a player, you remember the losses,’’ Parker said. “It sticks with you. You take it with you and it makes you sick.’’

Asked about that comment, Augustus rolled her eyes. Different situations. Ogwumike’s shot was very nearly last-second, where even if Moore had missed, the Sparks would have had to score to tie the game.

“Not the same,’’ Augustus said, with a definite roll of her eyes. “But I’ll let them have their moment. If that’s what they need to get ready, so be it.’’


Rivalries are by far the best part of sports.

Lynx just don't look sharp. Too many turnovers for Minny -- and missing some easy shots. Not holding on to the ball....with Parker out Lynx need to pounce.

Lynx looked much sharper and more motivated last year coming off the finals loss to LA. Fowles in particular played like an MVP from the tip last year.

Karlie got the nod. I like our defense despite Moore burning us a few times. These refs are sure letting Minny play physical. Love me some Chels Gray! Sims defense on Whalen was great at the start of the game.

Fowles & Brunson should be domination today against this small Sparks line-up. They're winning the battle of the boards, but I'm expecting more from them today.

Clearly, Chelsea has donned her red cape . . . or rather her dark cape to become one of our Batwomen today. Any more Robins care to join her and Nneka?

So when Lavender & Vadeeva show up, can Agler cut Williams and keep Samuelson? Seriously. Williams is a mess out there.
