The Sky perimeter players MUST make their outside shots against Indy. Dunn will double and three team Fowles to death and dare the Sky to make outside shots. That has been her M.O. since she has been the Fever's coach and will not change now. If the Sky do not make their outside shots and turn the ball over too much then this will be a short-live series in favor of the Fever.

1. Take care of the ball. Don't let Indy get extra possessions off steals or forced turnovers or our own mishandling of the ball.

2. Spread the floor and MOVE. Standing around waiting for Piph or EDD to make a play will only make it easier for Indy to defend and get in the passing lane.

These two things have cost us in the past. These are pretty simple to correct, let's do it and we'll beat Indy.

Swish...this is why it's important for EDD to go to her power game also. They can't handle both Syl and EDD. She's is a good interior passer too. If Indy wants to take away Syl...they must be made to pay.

Above all things though...THE SKY HAS TO GET BACK ON DEFENSE!

Indiana want to rain on our Parade...seriously they lost that last game on purpose. They know they have the Sky's number (and has for years even with EDD) and would much rather play us then Atlanta or Washington. For the Sky to win this series they will have to not let Indiana dictate the pace of the game. Get out and run, run, run! do not let Indiana get into their defensive sets. Also they have to amp up their defense especially on their guards...Douglas, January, Zellous, and Pohlen can all go off. Of course the head of the snake Catchings will have to be contained, but don't let other players go off. We already know players like Syl and EDD have to be on for us to win, but Piph and Sloot need to be on as well and step up big in the backcourt during this series. I will be at this game Friday not really confident about us playing Indiana but none the less excited about the playoffs.

The first and most paramount thing against Indy is to take the floor WITH NO FEAR!

I will know from the tip off...if our ladies have decided they have NO FEAR.

I'm convinced this "Indy thing" is a mindest...GET RID OF IT!!!

The Sky must win the game on Friday to show Indy that they mean business. A win on Friday would be a major confidence boost for the Sky and would put pressure on Indy to win to stay in the playoffs. Go Sky! Go!

Syl has to go up strong inside...she will most definitely get Larkins in foul trouble.

The Sky has to play to their strength and with EDD and Big Syl that will be their size.

If the perimeter shooting is good Indy cannot bet The Sky!
