I dunno, man. Washington has "regular season juggernaut" written all over them, to me. I expect them to gag hard, in the Finals, if they even get that far.

If the Sorcerers are 100% healthy throughout the playoffs then they should win the 2019 championship.

Possible. Three times in league history a team has won 26+ games then lost in the playoffs to a team with fewer than 26 wins. Two of them were coached by Thibault.

CHI over PHO, MIN over SEA Neutral
LVA over CHI, LAS over MIN
WAS over LVA in 4, CON over LAS in 5
WAS over CON in 4

Although, each of the two finals Delle Donne has played in, she's played hurt. Hopefully no player gets hurt this playoff season.

Real talk, Thibault is, like, at least eighty-five percent of the reason why I expect them to choke.

Toliver's injury is the difference maker. I picked Washington to win it all. But with KT not being 100%, I have to give the edge to LA.

Round 1

Sky over Merc

A lot are taking merc as a sexy pick but I dunno if DT plays and when she has played she's looked her age. Back surgery isn't a knee or ankle we may never see the GOAT DT again and after so many years that's ok...Griner can and will dominate cold in but too much outside firepower sky minus 5

Storm over Lynx

History has not shine well on home teams in this format and in Everett on a weekday...But storm home court is a different animal proved it this year...again in playoffs I'll go backcourt over frontcourt Lloyd goes off at home in a barnburner Storm in a pickem

Sparks over Storm

Rivalry game higher upset potential than people give it credit for but it would be an upset too much firepower at full strength for LA here come in not team and hotter at home not the same team or fan base that got tripped up by lowly ny in front of a dead crowd early this year...gonna be close because rivalry and a chippy one at that...May wanna air after threshhold sparks minus 6.5

Sky over Aces

We've seen this before with Bill taking home game for granted back into the playoffs and get run out of the building in the single elimination...I'm his 2Nd run he has not been good end of season...since Wilson returned there seems to be less flow and the piph signing barely covers up a lackluster underbelly once you pass plum on the depth chart...Quigley and young cancel...sloot kills whoever he sticks at 1 and deshields and McBride more even than you think...cambage and Wilson will need to 20 20 to have a shot a lot have Vegas but I take skytown...seeing the same did our jobs let's back in late that I saw time and time again with Bill in ny even under the old format can't turn it off and on Sky 3 queens over pair of aces er I mean minus 4

Mystics over Sky

This gonna be so ugly it may convince ESPN to let the league make round 2 best of 3 I can see folks picking Vegas just for that reason but just don't see it Way Vegas played their last few games (last night was a gimmie to me)

Way too much firepower here sky riding the upset more happy to be there only advantage is no tolliver vs sloot but I say double digit spreads each gam

Mystics in a sweep

Sun over Sparks

Sparks sexy pick and they've finished strong...very very strong with team finally back full strength I get it...CT 5 game hiccup mid year have been the best team no one has talked about shooting depth at 2 not withstanding sun match up well vs LA Jones I think edges Parker nekka and AT cancel and struck will give TRP fits trying to guard her outside Gray has edge on K Thomas but is closer than you think...Will come to intangibles...neither teams bench beyond 6th woman is much to sing about...I'll take Miller over fish any day and Sun have the extra day at the casino

All games decided under 5 points (and sun have defense edge)

Sun in a classic 5 game set

Mystics over Sun

Gonna be better than on paper...maybe one game gets away from CT but it will be a close set...Mystics just so many weapons win on bench depth...if take Jones over Emma and At on EDD Will be interesting but the winningest coach in Wnba history gets his 2022 ticket to Knoxville punched with the title here way too much in back and on bench he could go Hawkins Sanders at 5 Emma 4 edd 3 and totally spill the Apple cart

All games within 7 maybe one runaway and Sun pride and urgency give em the home game in Sunday in game 3 casino always tough to play in

Mystics in a hard fought but fair 4

Under the old format, Indiana would have made the playoffs and Phoenix would be out. We'd have:

EAST
Indiana vs. Washington
Chicago vs. Connecticut

WEST
Minnesota vs. Los Angeles
Seattle vs. Las Vegas

I just don't see Connecticut beating Los Angeles in a playoff series.....The Sun are an unproven playoff team that has yet to win a playoff game with their current group of players. While the Sparks are a veteran team with Championship experience. I think Beard and TRP are going to contain Williams and Parker is going to outplay AT. Thomas doesn't have enough length to bother Parker. And we all know Chiney would be extra motivated playing against her former team.

Same. Although I hope Sparks can pull an upset in the finals.

Didn't wear a brace yesterday. And a couple weeks ago she said she's going to play in the playoffs no matter what. That's about all we know.

This might work out perfectly. Toliver could mess up the new chemistry, and keep Powers on the bench. Something’s gotta happen to keep Thibault from his first championship.

I agree with Zune ...Conn over LA in a series seems far fetched , but who knows ?
