I wish I could hear it. For some reason about a month ago WNBA.com wouldn't stream anymore and before that I couldn't get the Indiana feed when it did. Try again tonight but I'm not hopeful.

I'm actually not sure when it will be on. Websites say 7, but on TV the pregame show is listed from 7-7:30. Of course I'm sure the LL game will go into extra innings or something.

Smooth...

It's a shame you didnt start watching about the 3rd quarter, when the Fever were getting stomped... I mean blown out, down by 17. They came all the way back.

This was probably the best pro Indiana basketball game I've watched in a year or so. It really sucks they lost this game, but that team has alot of heart. I expect them to win the next one.

It was weird, but watching them play it really seemed like a pistons/pacers game from that one season... Great Defense, long stretches of poor offensive execution and huge clutch shots.

That was a disappointing loss, I thought we had it for a little while.

Gyron

That was a fun game to watch. Disappointing we lost, but still a lot of fun. Thats what playoff basketball should be. A flat out dogfight through the last seconds of the game.

Those girls gave it every bit that they had.

An Deforge was channeling Reggie out there. HUGE threes several times. Great game. I had a lot of fun watching that one last night. Can't wait for the next one now.

ABADays
08-24-2007, 12:55 PM
This was a big, big loss. We couldn't finish when we had the 5 point lead. CT seems to have our number so playing at home now needing to go 2-0 is going to be tough.

Btw, I would just like to take this opportunity to say that it's really, really stupid that the team with the lower seed gets game #1 at home.

It's a compressed schedule and since it's only a best of 3 series that's why they do it.

Anyone know if Saturday's game will be on FSIN or just NBA-TV? I won't be happy if it's just NBA-TV since my league pass hasn't started yet.

I just got back from the game. For all of you who poo-poo the WNBA where else can you walk in 15 minutes before a playoff game and get seat 16 rows up at center court? And they were only $35 each. If that isn't enough to get you Ashley Bidwell was there too.

As for the game Tamika Catchings didn't even look like she'd been hurt. Anna DeForge was amazing. Kind of reminded me of when Reggie would throw anything up and it would go in. Tammy Sutton-Brown on the other hand.--Yuk. She finally hit a shot near the end of the game. Hopefully that will help her confidence.

I was kind of surprised at the lack of love for Katie Douglas, but it is the playoffs after all. Of course it was nothing like the near hatred Fever fans for Ruth Riley (even before she broke Tamika Cathings' nose Tamika's rookie year).

Donnie was there in his seat too. There was a woman who kind of looked like Stacey Austin sitting next to him, but I doubt it was her.

Unfortunately I won't be able to provide any commentary on Monday night's game because I'll be at work. :(

Shade, you do realize when Detroit smokes NY in the next two games you will be solely responsible. :slap:

grace
08-25-2007, 07:11 PM
I almost put this on the main board, but I figured I'd be better off putting it here.

At the game when Freddie Fever game out I looked at my mom and said "Boomer should be here. Who knows when he'll get to go to a playoff game."

Pacers circa 1990. Isn't that sad to think about, that there was a time that the Pacers had that little interest.


Anyway, just got in to see this result. I have to say I didn't think it was possible. A win maybe, but to do it so decisively. FINALLY! Gotta think that's the hump right there.

I don't think it's too much of a stretch, seeing as how the Fever lost a close game in triple OT to a higher seed and nemesis, while the Shock got absolutely stomped.

So...the monkey on our back has been CT for years, not Detroit. It's not a comment on relative team talent, it's a comment on history.

Detroit is obviously a talented team, but CT had our number - they were in our heads. Thus the nemesis comment applies much more to CT than to Detroit.

I can't believe the Fever finally got past that Sun hurdle. After the OT loss you had to wonder. For them this was like the Pacers beating NY or the Colts beating NE. Best news is Catchings having such a strong game.

:( the Silver Stars lost tonight... they tied the game at 100 at the end of the 4th qtr then one of the SS fouled one of the mercury players with 2.1 sec left on the clock... so of course they made their free throws then the silver stars missed the half court basket. awwwwwwwwwwwwwww

It was really an awesome game... the silver stars were down 4 then 5 then 6 then 8 ... then Taurasi (sp) just lost her mind, fouled a 3 point play... silver stars made all 3 then she dribbled the ball out of bounds... :-o silver stars got it back and becky hammonds made a 3 pointer to tie the game... then after seeing the replays the player from the mercury jumped into the silver star player and the silver stars were called for the foul.... :bs:

oh well... it's all good! :)

bad news: we're trailing at halftime.

Just keep Catchings from taking over, keep beating them up inside, and we're in good shape...

If it works, I don't care :)

Eh, it's how the bad boys jacked themselves up to gp up against Bird, Magic and Jordan ever year. It worked back then too.

It goes back to my point, that the refs can't beat you by themselves, unless you help them. You can either let bad calls work against you, or you can use them as motivation.

Semi-interesting tid bit. Went to WNBA.com to get the stream for the Indiana feed. Where does it go? To WIBC who isn't broadcasting the game. So I switch to WNDE.com and listen to the first half. It disappears at halftime. Must have gotten caught. Now I have to listen to the Shock feed.

I should have known this was gonna be a bad day.

Indiana is 14-44 from the arc for this series.

I'm not surprised they shot such a low percentage. What shocks me is that they jacked up 44 threes in two games :laugh:

Well, that was a quarter to forget...

Deanna Nolan is on fire, which is good because without her we'd already be out of this game.

Note to Laimbeer: Never, EVER start Katie Feenstra ever again...

Kstat

Nolan is in full Iverson mode tonight. Holy ****.

She's dialed in like I've never seen her before. A one-woman army.

oh ****. Catchings just tore something. Looks really bad.

Kstat
09-03-2007, 07:03 PM
Wow, what a change of fortune.

The Fever start off the game leading 17-3, and Nolan just took over and dominated the rest of the half.

To add insult to injury, Catchings tried a crossover her body couldn't handle, and she hurt herself really bad.

If the Fever can recover from this, it'll be an amazing comeback story. The Shock have all the momentum right now, plus a 5-point halftime lead.

The officials have starting calling touch fouls on both ends, which may benefit Indiana. However, it's still inconsistent with the rest of the game and very lame.

Appears to be ok, though. Her knee hot hit, not her ankle.
