Thought it was the other way around. She was saying JJ is different from Yo in that JJ *does* have an outside shot. Not saying I agree with the comparison, just stating what I thought I heard.


She came back later and said the opposite, but pretty sure the first time around she said JJ didn't have an outside game.

BG may as well start flopping.

It's really nice to watch Brit look like she's the best player in the world.

Obviously she's in the running with a few players (Jones and Stewart still ahead of her, IMO)...but it's nice to see all that skill and athleticism come with some aggression and confidence.

Both teams playing really solid basketball.

I was proud of the Mercury for staying in the game despite the hot 3 point shooting.

This is lacking the balance of a normal Mercury thread so far, so while it has been a pretty good quality and competitive game so far, I'll also add:
- this is trash
- the ref calls are trash
- Brondello is trash
- Mercury defence is trash
- BG needs to get a touch on literally every possession
- Certain players need to take a seat
- Something about Kia that is unclear about whether it is aimed at Nurse or Vaughn

Clocked.

Btw. That BG block on Jones sealed the MVP for me.

Y’all MVP getting owned by Breezy.

All jokes though. What a great team matchup.

Come on now refs.

That three should count. Utter shit.

That was one of the more ridiculous stretches from the refs I've seen this year.

How on earth does that last shot not count. She should have been going to the free throw line for a four point play.

It seems common to allow massive continuations on layup attempts, yet that one that was in the same motion with no extra steps involved, gets waved off

We are due for about 6 consecutive make ups here. Call me a homer. I don’t care.

Hard disagree. Jonquel Jones is exactly what I imagine a young Yo Griffith would have looked like, if the WNBA had been founded in 1987, instead of 1997. The only thing that Jones does that Yo didn't was shoot threes, but you'll never convince me that Yo wouldn't have developed a three-point shot, if that was how they wanted her to play, when she was coming up.

We have no clue what we’re doing.

How we aren’t trying to speed up the game with 3 minutes left down 7 is beyond me.

DT would make a huge difference here offensively so I’m still happy about the team outlook. Just frustrating to not seem to be playing with any urgency.

Still makes me chuckle when coaches pull down their masks to shout

Yeah, that plus every extra day is good for Bria.

Sun too good tonight.

For how brutal this officiating has been, including taking away 4 Mercury points, I am shocked it’s a 5 point game.

However, we needed to do better to weather that and didn’t do that.
