Very happy to see the Sky in 1st place at this point and really loved the last 2 games.  The play call and execution on Sylvia's winning basket on Friday was a coaching masterpiece.  Very encouraging to see this.  The comeback on Saturday was nothing but really good effort by the players.  In years past, we seemed to give up and accept defeat.  Very encouraging to see this, too.
Discussion in our section on Friday was about the possible bumps in the road and other scenarios playing out this season.  On the "bump side", the end of season schedule was discussed.  It is brutal!  Without my rose colored glasses on, we (and any other team in the league except maybe Minnesota) could have lots of trouble with the 10 game stretch from 8/26 thru 10/18.  3 games vs Conn, west coast trip, Indiana, Minnesota, a 2nd LA game.  If we have a good enough start, even this won't stop us from making the playoffs.
The other scenarios is the possibility of teams maybe trying less than their best come the 2nd half of the season if they do not have a good start.  There is a big prize out there this year for finishing at the bottom: Brittney Griner and Elena Della Donne.  Wouldn't be the 1st time that something like this happened in the sports world.  Would certainly help the Sky playoff run if we were to benefit from something like this.

Definitely fanbetty!!!

The calling card has to be "ONE GAME AT A TIME"!!!

This team needs to keep gelling because they can get better. It's so refreshing to see how the ball moves on offense and because there are more options than just EP & Syl teams have to play The Sky straight up...and They Sky can execute so much better!!!

It speaks to Pokeys ability to manage and coach.

There are still thing to work on because there were issues wher The Sky almost handed the game back to The Dream. Pokey has to teach them to think playing down the to eat clock but still execute!!!

Great to see the toughness and will to win though...SOOOO REFRESHING!!! Clap
