I have complete confidence in the team. I don't foresee any way we lose this game if I am going to be honest and cocky. We have been getting hot at the right time. And the Dream are without Tip Hayes and possibly Sancho Lyttle.

Taking Angel McCoughtry out of the equation, Layshia Clarendon, Elizabeth Williams, and possibly a once in a blue moon great game from Matee Ajavon or Meighan Simmons are the only offensive factors I could see having an impact.

I also think for the Dream, Angel McCoughtry has to be careful to  stay out of foul trouble, which may be tough if she ever gets tasked to guard Stewie.

Either way, I would be prepared to buy tickets to Chicago before the  game to demonstrate how confident I am.  Shocked

Why did Jenny Boo keep KML in for so long when she couldn't hit the broad side of a barn and couldn't defend anyone?  Why not go with O'Hea, who can shoot 3's just as well and defend better, plus give some size and rebounding?

I get her wanting to use the young players, BUT the playoffs is also a time to rely on vets who've been there to get a team through the rough patches.  She has 3 in Bishop, O'Hea, and Wright, the latter two who have shown their worth in big games (Olympics, WNBA playoffs).  But she sat them most of the season and in this game.

It's not like any of them are injured.  Jenny Boo has either lost confidence in them (for some unknown reason) or she's bound and determined to justify using the #3 pick on KML, no matter what.  Problem is, games like this show KML wasn't worth the pick-something that's happened too often in the last 2 seasons.  She certainly didn't show why deserved playing so many minutes over the others in this game.

yeah, I don't know why those 3 were sitting so much  Undecided

I did see Monica Wright sitting on the bench with a heating pad on both knees in every game, that's the only thing I can think of....

it is a puzzle....would have been nice to see them play, see more what they could do!

Yeah i dont understand sitting O'Hea at all. Yes she had a rough shooting stretch but then completely keep her out of the rotation for the rest of the season is nonsense It doesnt have to be either KML or O'Hea on the floor. O'Hea can play and defend multiple positions while KML cant. In this game Angel was going insane and Clark had an off game on both sides of the ball so put Jenna on Angel and see if she can atleast show her down a bit.
But no she didnt try that all. Or try Stewart on Angel in that 4th quarter.
