Great game. Hope the Sky can pull this off. This Phoenix team is just so damn good, even without their best player.

Syl is due to score. Quigley, Elena, or Syl should be the only players shooting this possession.

Well, it was a great run for the Sky. Something real to build on. PHX just too good.

Delle Donne not very composed down the stretch the last two shots she took she rushed them when she didn't need to and that cost the Sky a change to tie up the game.

Dupree reminded me of Bosh, killed you every time. Sky need a better starting 2 guard. Congrats to them for making it this far....great experience.

Absolutely right. This was one of those years for the sky. Quigley really improved.
She is one of the skys best players now.
Sky have a good well rounded team. I even like quigley and prince as their backcourt moving forward tho we didnt see much of that tonight.
They get the 5th pick in the draft which should cetainly be a rotation player. Prince looked kinda done as a sg, just too undersized. Play her pg and maybe quigley is starting potential now. If not they could look to address this need in the draft and prince can work on being a full time pg.
Vandersloot is good but makes mistakes and most of her value comes in getting Sylvia the ball which prince could probably do.
Tamera Young got much better imo.

Pgs- Prince , vandersloot
Wings, T.Young, Quigley
Bigs:Fowles, Della Donne, Breland

They actually have a lot to do to build a competitive roster. Need a 3rd and 4th wing, and a 4th big.
That looked like the rotation today and its pretty short.

It makes me wonder how good the Sky could have been had EDD not miss a portion of the season. Got to keep her healthy if they want to get back to the Finals. And Prince, I know women players have to take jobs overseas to supplement their finances, but I wish Prince would stay in the states and rest. But the money is too good to pass up though.

I will maintain, a healthy EDD and Prince and this WNBA Finals would still be going on, probably heading to 5.

Congratulations to the ladies, I won't say a great season because they still only went 15-19 but I will say a interesting season. Let's get some help @ #5 pick in next year's draft and let's ride.
Goodbye....Someday.

I don't know what the **** happened to Prince.

I remember watching her last year and she was like the female Eric Gordon (LAC version).

If the Bulls do, you would be complaining to much to ever hear it.

Bummer of a game, man. I thought we were gonna pull it out. I had forgotten the finals started last sunday and when i heard we were down 2-0 i had to watch this third game. Havent been keepin up wit the sky lately (since we traded candace dupree, ironically enough) but I did think that we were gonna make it to the finals last year after drafting EDD. Hilarious that we made it this year. If she stays healthy I can see us keep goin to the finals

EDIT: Quigley is a frickin beast tho.
Is something clever supposed to go here?

If this was the NBA there would be zero chance, but with this being the WNBA, do you think we could put a package together and trade for Candace Parker? I know they were just sold to an ownership group that includes Magic Johnson, but the previous group just gave up ownership a year ago to the WNBA so things cant be going great in LA.
