I expected a gutsy loss when Jackson's 3 ended regulation, and we tool it to double-overtime. Seattle is a tough place to play, time for Lynx fans to make Target Center a tough place to play.

Tough loss in a tough, fast-paced game. Where were Maya and Seimone in the 4th quarter? Why couldn't Lindsay make a layup (2 for 15)? Ugh. We could and should have won. We didn't play our game. Gotta come home and fire it up and hit those easy shots! Hope Mama Taj's tailbone recovers for Tuesday. Heal the aches and pains ladies, and come back strong!

Horrible offensive play. Seattle earned it and deserved it by driving the lane as much as shooting 3's. The Lynx shot poorly with low percentage running and fading jumpers that never saw the bottom of the net. Poor coaching job. Why didn't they foul during the last few seconds of regulation? They had one to give. And the result was Seattle executing their offensive plan to perfection. It's not going to handed to you ladies.

The Lynx players played their worst game all year and almost won. Just think how well they will play back at Target Center. No need to panic. The Lynx will prevail and likely win by twenty in the next game.

First really bad game I've ever seen Lindsay play; it was horrible. Team play not there, maybe it was Setttle's defense, maybe not. They played like Borton's teams; plays don't work so have to rely on desperate one on one shots. But, we all have a bad day at the office now and then; go get em Tuesday, women.

The Lynx better wake up soon. They have played very inconsistently over the last couple of weeks.

Kudos to Rebekkah Brunson for her tenacious play throughout the game. She sometimes doesn't get enough credit for doing the clean-up work. Teams have off-nights and this clearly was one. Would have been nice to get Game 2 under the belt and rest up for LA (and that's the way it probably should have gone despite weak play), but it didn't work out that way. Confident that the Lynx will come back with resolve on Tuesday night at Target Center.

What was Coach Reeves thinking at the end of regulations, 18 seconds left, we're ahead with the ball...and she calls time out? Run the clock down and make them foul us....ugh!

Come on now..... Storm did what they suppose to do, but in double OT? Ouch! STORM STOPPERS bring on your game Tuesday night.

Say what you want folks, this one was on the coach(es). Echo what was said earlier in a post, THEY HAD A FOUL TO GIVE, and to make matters worse, they had at least 2, maybe 3 chances to foul before they could set up for that last second 3 made by Jackson. Yes Lynx will most likely win on Tuesday but coaches need to step up their game too when the players aren't on their top game.
