    Seriously, the whole "think of the paint as an acid pit with lava underneath it" offense is driving me nuts. It doesn't help that Davenport plays like she weighs about 20 lbs in the post.

    And I just noticed tonight that Katie runs under the front court through two screens, gets the ball with a full step on her cover, and stops dead. Of course, up comes the cover AND the screener's defender, for an instant double-team. Gotta either keep moving or take a shot there.
    Yes re: your Davenport comments though I do think she is getting better at maneuvering in the post. She was productive in the paint tonight and seemed to me to be taking contact a little better than usual.

    With Katie, I think what you are seeing is one the main reasons her shot is so woeful right now (and her turnovers are up). Five plus games ago the screener's defender wasn't as consistent in double-teaming right away and when it did she was taking that shot immediately, before the defense could recover. Now teams scouting reports probably report exactly what you saw tonight Bill and the Fever/Katie have yet to adjust.

    I also think Tamika was screening for Katie more during her hot shooting streak and I am not sure why that has changed - when Catch rolled to the basket she forced the defender to go with her so Katie couldn't get doubled.

    Interesting that Zellous was benched - I hope it was because of her shot selection and that we'll see a little bit more aggressive version of her when she gets worked back into the rotation. Honestly, she reminds me a bit of Brandon Rush - good defensive player, and plenty of under utilized offense talent. :/

    Nice to get a win, good to see much better transition D - but I wish Dunn had a talented. offensive minded coach to help her out in that area.

    Tangela Smith has been SO BAD. Ugh.

    What a crappy way to close out the half on the road.

    Hallelujah. That was an ugly game but an important win.

    Safe picks, though I didn't expect Minnesota to completely dominate like that and the Fever made us sweat it out. Nice to win at the buzzer like that, go Little Bit!

    I am getting a little perturbed at the IndyStar failing to even have the Fever scores on line in their supposed "Fever" section.

    I noticed that a couple of days ago - I had a heck of a time just finding the Fever section. It's pretty sad when I almost always learn more about the team - quotes and detailed game recaps - from the newspaper of the opposing team.

    I'm at the game now

    Very good start

    Good crowd at the Fieldhouse too

    The Fever always get nice crowds because they're good. Expecting the same for the Pacers soon.
    In 49 states it's just basketball, but this is Indiana!

    Great crowd, good old-fashioned a$$ kicking.

    Still no indystar.com coverage, I sent a nastygram this morning complaining about it.

    Let's not forget that it's a little easier to show a good crowd when the balcony is closed down and the tickets in the lower bowl are in the $15-$20 range. That said, the support for the Fever is fantastic.

    Re: Star - story from game last night has showed up on the main sports page (kind of hidden under the Top Stories summary, first article in the More Sports section), but the Fever topic page still doesn't have it - they did link to a story about last Thursday's game, finally.

    That game last night was awesome. There was about 9,100 in attendance. Great crowd.

    That was such a fun night and I was happy the Fieldhouse (at least the seats available) were filled. Everyone was getting into it. Just a great time.

    As far as WNBA attendance goes because I believe all teams close their upper levels, the Fever have to be towards the top. Everytime I've been to a game or watched it on TV which has been once or twice a week, they have terrific home crowds.

    All in all Hoosiers cannot resist good basketball.

    Back on the move!

    And thanks to the Indy Star for fixing their links to the Fever articles so everything on their web site is timely once again!
