The guards for Japan are quick.

As expected, perimeter defense is a problem for the US. Luckily for the US, their threes are also falling.

Japan is killing it on offense and defense. They are hitting 3's, constantly backdoor cutting their USA counterparts, and are quick.

Defensively, the pressure and quickness is killing the USA. We absolutely don't look ready or prepared for Japan.

I mean, the US put up 28 points on the quarter - they're not having a LOT of problems on the offensive end. The defense though...

I find it a little bizarre how few minutes Diggins and Atkins are getting. Seems like Japan would be a good game to try out a smaller quicker lineup, no?

Japan should recruit Aari McDonald to play as a naturalized citizen! She was born to play in this system.

The question is: do you try to fight fire with more fire.. or do you counter with water?

Japan only scored 10 in the second quarter after going off for 30 in the first. Pretty hard to hit 3s at a 60% pace for an entire game.

True, but it's certainly made much easier when your opponent doesn't seem to care about perimeter D (:

Diggins-Smith apparently got banged up in practice and won't play today as a result. Rather than just not being used like Atkins. No idea whether that condition was part of why Diggins-Smith barely played in their first game anyway, or if it's new.

Eh... but the switch was to put in Loyd, pushing DT to the 3 and Stewart to the 4. So it's not like they decided to stick with the big line-up, she's just favoring Jewell heavily over the other backup guards. Which is fine, Staley's choice, but you'd think with their advantage being depth they'd use their backup guards a bit more.

That said, as a Storm fan, I'm not opposed to having Bird, Loyd, and Stewart in! Wink

ETA: Ah, so injuries playing a part.

After watching the start of the 3rd, you've totally convinced me. Yikes this is bad.

Dawn does not need to coach this team anymore.

Loyd really?

BG and Aja carrying the team because what is going on.

We were arguing about the 12 that got to go and we won’t even play more than 8 women.
