    Stepped on an Atlanta players foot and went down. Had to be carried off the floor by her teammates.

    didn't see Tamika go down. That's awful.

    I've gotta say, if poor Angel's career goes as it usually does, Atlanta will make the finals only to get run over by the freight train that is Minny. (As she did against Uconn, and then last year Seattle.)

    Actually, it was Alison Bales who stepped on and pinned Tamika's left foot. Tamika then shifted her weight back awkwardly onto her right foot. When Bales moved her foot (thus releasing Tamika's left foot), Tamika went down.

    I think she'll play, but I'd be surprised if they gave Atlanta the benefit of knowing whether to gameplan for her or not.

    No word yet, which is somewhat curious as they said there would be an update on Monday. I think Kuq is probably right about the game planning thing.

    Edit: Tamika is officially listed as a game time decision.

    I have no idea if this is gamesmanship or if there is a chance she will play. If she does I expect her to be pretty limited, but if she can go at all it might be a real emotional boost for the team.

    Point guard play has really hurt us in this series.

    Ugh. Now the potentially long wait for the NBA begins.

    The reporter asking Angel McCoughtry how the Dream was able to keep its composure was pretty funny.

    And in retrospect, de Souza leaving was not a plus for us. It just made them faster and Castro-Marquez tore us up.

    Props to Tamika for gutting out the torn plantar fascia.

    Atlanta-Minnesota should be a hell of a series though, I'll probably watch.

    Well, that went...pretty much exactly how I expected.

    At least the two best teams are in the Finals. Personally, I hope Minny stomps the **** out of Atlanta.

    I hope I don't have to see another game filled with Lin Dunn's "Fear The Paint, Keep Your Thumb In Your Thong" offense.

    I thought the beginning of the game was fantastic offensively for the Fever - lay-ups, cutters, moving without the ball - then Atlanta asked for their offense back and got it.

    I can see driving into the trap if you have a passing lane open up - it doesn't because everyone waits for a defender to make a mistake. I can see passing around the perimeter to find an open shooter - it doesn't work if you stop one pass short or take too long to decide where to go with the ball, or pick up the dribble too early and end up almost underneath your defender with nowhere to go.

    As much as I loved Jessica Davenport in previous years, she was just too slow for the minutes she was playing this year. As much as losing our point guards hurt, I think losing Ebony hurt more.

    As for the officiating - no ref in any league is going to bail you out when your offense consists of out-of-control stumbles toward the basket and perimeter shooting.

    I think they pretty much will.

    Phoenix was probably their toughest team, and they stomped on them.

    Minny actually has just a ridiculous team.
    Whalen, at worst the second best point guard in the league.
    Moore, Rookie of the year
    Seimone, One of the best SF's in the league. Probably only behind Angel, Diana (if we're calling Taurasi a SF), and Catch
    Brunson, she was probably the best PF this season
    Taj, still a very good center, better than most team's have. And she's a savy vet.

    And then they've got the best bench in the league. Charde Houston, an all star two seasons ago, is last in the rotation. Not because she's a bad player, but because Minny's bench and players are just THAT good.

    They won't be able to keep everyone. Right now, a lot of those players are on Rookie contracts (Wiggins, Houston, Moore, at least..) but they are more stacked than any NBA team I've ever seen.

    Yes, sir I think they will and I shall enjoy every moment of it. We're sure to get at least one super-duper melt-down from Angel too.

    I don't really agree that Atlanta is a "best" team, they just match up extremely well against the Fever and are thus better than the Fever. Against teams with other lineups/styles, they ain't so hot.

    Catch locked up her 7th WNBA All-Defensive team honor, the only player to be named to the first team every year it has been selected. She was the only player to receive 11 first-team votes this year. She missed out on DPOY to Sylvia Fowles by a hair - Sylvia got 19 of 40 votes, Catch got 18.

    Katie made the WNBA All-Defensive Second Team.

    None of this matters to them. They didn't win a championship.

    Yeah, I know that. It's still Indiana Fever news, and fans care. At least - I do.

    Ooooo, it must sting to get swept in the Finals two years running, especially when you consistently put together three good quarters of ball and **** it all away in the fourth.

    It's a far cry from an Indiana Fever championship, but I'm getting some small measure of satisfaction out of my temporary Minnesota Lynx fandom.

    It's nice to see players like Whalen, Agustus and Wiggins get a championship. These are players that always lifted their teams to "close" to getting a ring, and never really had enough compared to another team. Also, all very likeable players.
