Our Ladies still can't put it together for 4 qtrs. It's tough against a veteran playoff team...but you gotta come to play every qtr. The offense still isn't in sync yet either.

Out rebounded 41-32 but LA got 13 offensive rebounds!

The thing I come away with in this game is to start Parker. Gabby is a good defender but putting her consistently in mismatches is not helping her. She gets in foul trouble and it affect her overall game.

Our ladies just aren't there yet and it would be great if Dolson can get back soon. Coates got some good minutes but she still doesn't have the flow of the game. The only help for that is practice and game minutes.

On the road to the Mystics

The Sky has to get it going for 4 qtrs
The "BIG 5"???

It just makes more sense to start Parker to me.

Yes, every Sky fan understands this but Stocks.

"Yes, every Sky fan understands this but Stocks. [/QUOTE]


Lost 6 of last 7 games, same game plan being used for Offense and Defenses. The rule must be " If we stay with the same program maybe it'll work next time with better results." Coaching 101 would suggest MAYBE it's not the players that are the problem (Quigley, Sloot, Gabby, Deshields and Faulkner have now all been highpoint producers in a game). Walking up and down the sideline, waving and pointing, doesn't seem to change things.Season is now almost a third of the way over. Weaker teams on the schedule may get the Sky to "average" but don't expect to get in the playoffs.
I WOULD AGREE WITH YOU BUT THEN WE'D BOTH BE WRONG

If Stocks mission plan for the 2018 season is to qualify for the 2019 lottery then she is on course to accomplish that goal.

Actually my only complaint with Stocks is starting Gabby against PFs with the size advantage.

After that the question is defense and TOs.

The Sparks played smart...they took Quigley away as she's the most consistent scorer. DeShields and Faulkner didn't really get going until the 2nd half. Sloot didn't play a bad game by any means either. Three point shooting was not there either.

This team simply needs to be consistent and not fall into defensive lapses. Perhaps today???
