Cool As A Cucumber

Game 3. What Game 3?
That might have been the impression you received by the mood among the Sun's players after their Sunday morning shootaround. Connecticut, one day removed from staving off elimination, seeks its third consecutive trip to the WNBA Finals tonight at home against Detroit.
The players looked more than comfortable about eight hours before tonight's tip, chatting and laughing as their session came to a close.
"It'’s not rocket science," coach Mike Thibault said. "We've just got to go play basketball. We'’ll see what happens."
Although Thibault and some of his players tried to dismiss the notion of momentum after securing the Game 2 win, it certainly can't hurt the Sun with the turnaround to this decisive game coming with little rest for either side. Playing at home should also be an advantage, but early signs as of last night made it seem like the crowd's size was still below an acceptable number. It'll be something else to keep an eye on.

lets pick next seasons players:
Douglas, Sales, Jones, Dydek and Phillips; If Willingham doesnt mind being the 10 player she has had some good minutes. I'd like to see Brungo have a full season of playing as a 8th man. Summerton is expendable. Jamie is a keeper.
Its time to admit Lindsey has met her match with the good teams in this league. The Sun have a valuable trading resource and need to get the next Deana Nolan who is out there. If Lindsey plans to drive the lane for 75% of her shots, the good teams like Detroit learn fast and clog the middle. Without a better number of attempts from outside ala Douglas or Sue Bird, Lindsey loses her advantage in the trick shots she makes 5 times a game. Strike me down but I'll take Kara Lawson and a potential Deana Nolan for Lindsey right now.
