    WNBA refs are the worst. OH my god. That technical on DT was absurd.

    Curious what halftime adjustments we will make. We generally suck in the 3rd quarter so I am not feeling great about the 2nd half.

    If Griner can turn it on, we might have a shot. Nice to see DT playing hard unlike last game.

    Our Mercury are overmatched. Parker is drawing Brittney away from the basket and, without her leading in scoring and rebounding, it's affecting the rest of the team.

    I give the Mercury credit for hanging in for about the first 1 1/2 quarters in these first two games, but we're simply not as good. I understand it, but it doesn't make it fun.

    I agree, we are definitely overmatched.

    I'm at the game. Hoping for the best but I think we get swept.

    Frustrating when our offense seems so predictable. Pass around up top of the key, pass to BG, she shoots and no one crashes the boards. Or, we pass it around up top of the key and shoot a three with two seconds left on the shot clock. I see zero penetration happening.
