After being down by 12, Minnesota comes back and
is down by one at the end of the first quarter.

Dantas has been killing us this half. No way she continues to be that hot. Mercury down by 2 with 5 min left in the half

Mercury up 46 to 37. Tuarasi with 16. Role players hitting some shots and Vaughn doing her usual jumpers. I hope Peddy is okay and can come back next half.

Their Dangerfield (their leading scorer and WNBA Rookie of the Year) and
our Skylar both off to slow starts in scoring this game.

Fowles signaled her bench that she's winded in this, her first game back.

It is tied at 60 at the end of 3 quarters.

Now it's a 10 minute game.

Skylar is 1 for 9 so far.

All tied up to start the 4th. I feel like we’ve been playing better than what the score shows. Hopefully we can take this game.

Back to back 3s by the Lynx. We are down 6 now. We are missing defensive intensity. Skylar playing like crap.

Minnesota has opened up a 70-64 lead with 7:00 left in the 4th quarter.

And it looks like Peddy, having been hit in the face in the 1st half, tried
but is not coming back.

Skylar strikes me as the Stephon Marbury of the WNBA. Capable of putting up numbers and making splashy plays, but ultimately not dependable for a team that wants to win a championship. I wish we still had Bonner and Mitchell instead.
