First road game of year with poor shot selection and bench did not produce scoring or defense. Monica Wright seemed to be sporadic off the bench. Amber Harris was great against Phoenix yet tonight not a factor. Hope Lynx learn from this game. Friday night game vs. Phoenix was unbelievable especially 1st half!

Watched this game on Live Access and watched a totally different team. Never saw a team give up more layups than what the Lynx did. Why in the world would you defend Washington out beyond the 3 point arc with them having so much speed? Latta simply was way too quick for Whalen. Can't do a very good job playing defense by trailing the person to the basket. Hate to say this, but Reeve didn't look like a very good coach in this game.

Agreed that the defense wasn't there but neither was the offense. With so many weapons you have to shoot better than 38.5% - everyone was off! However, there were a lot of shots that actually went into the basket and spun around and out - unbelievable. This is a road game the Lynx should never lose but they were out hustled by the Mystics.

Watched online Center Court/Live Access: Lynx shooting wasn't sharp; team had more turnovers in one quarter than the whole of the previous game against Phoenix; untimely fouls were committed (several times when the Mystic's shot clock was near expiration); and our defense didn't play very smart or quickly make adjustments -- especially defending the lane against Latta, whose modus operandi is to drive. Maya's foul-out in the fourth particularly stung. Hats off to Mike Tebow and the scrappy team he's rebuilt. The capable Tebow was unceremoniously dumped by Connecticut and both he -- and many of his starters who weren't chosen or retained by other teams-- have a chip on their shoulder to prove something. They just plain outplayed the Lynx and kept us on our heels, although we made it close at the end. Chalk this one up to preparing the Lynx to be better going forward. We will have to be (and I believe we will): this year, there is more parity than ever in the League.
