Jealous. I have preexisting plans this weekend or else I'd be trying to go to one of these games.

Have a blast!

I was there in 2014 when we got swept - the one home game that had to be held at the UIC Pavilion because something else was already booked at Allstate Arena. It was my second year as an STH.

Interesting that there are only two players on each team that were in that series - Sloot and Allie, Griner and Taurasi.

I am so excited and hope we can finish them off on Friday night! It'll be tough - Phx will make adjustments and Cunningham will be back.

As long as we can stay focused, be less passive and grab more o-boards, convert more steals into points, make all of our FTs, stop Diamond from making layups, take care of the ball, keep up the disruptive defensive play and avoid stupid fouls, we should be good! Is that too much to ask? Laughing

I gotta think South Bend is showing out.

Just look for the lime green shirts!!

The late start time might be a problem though. A lot of there fans might not drive after dark. Wink

If the league decides to follow their rules DT will be suspend for gm 3.

That's entirely fair. You cannot have players shoving referees. It will say a lot about the league if they let this go without doing anything.

I'll make you a deal. Suspend her for the first half. She only shows up in the 4th anyway. 8 Laughing

When did she shove the referee, or are you all taking things out of context?


Edit: oh, I see - y’all want an advantage after Copper’s dirty play on Cunningham. If DT has to sit out a game for that, so shouldn’t Copper. She could have been ejected for that play.

This. As I stated in the other thread, Copper was the issue on that play. Just let it be at this point. It would be highway robbery if Copper is playing in game 3 and DT isn’t.

But just like LeBron, Taurasi is the ticket. Suspending her hurts the league more than it helps.

Players have certainly been punished for less.

If a player can get two games for swearing, contact with a ref ought to merit at least one. Wink

The aggressiveness by Copper was definitely worthy of a T (and I'm surprised she didn't get one, both her and Cunningham actually), but it's disingenuous to act like her actions were on the same level as shoving an official.

But they didn’t call the T. I think that if the official really felt some type of way about the push, she would have ejected her on the spot. I think Taurasi was coming over to say “hey, I got her, I got her.” And Flores was like “bet, I don’t get paid enough to break up a farm girl and Philly girl fight.”

Anyway, I read that Courtney left the game in a boot on her left foot. I’m hoping it’s just cramp-related, but I also don’t know if I’ve ever seen a boot be used like that before? I want everyone healthy and available when I’m in the building tomorrow!

What happened to Diamond DeShields? She's like Inspector Clouseau bumbling around out there. DD needs to make some shots (that count) and stop falling down on defense. Wade said she'd be the x-factor favoring Chicago. So far, Diamond is helping Phoenix more than the Sky.

Honestly, some team is going to get lucky with her lessened value as I think a change of scenery will do wonders for her game. She clearly isn't confident at the moment.

She's a head case and always has been

So sad, but true.

Wait who got suspended for swearing?

If DT gets suspended & Phx lose I know Mercury fans gonna use that as a excuse but the same time Im tired of seeing DT bad behaviour being dismissed.
