Han (Anything But) Solo; Impactful Liberty rookie connecting with New York, teammates

Upon entry, Han apparently has the potential growth of an entire league and country on her shoulders. She has handled it with the utmost grace thus far. But a reassuring factor in the grand scheme of her New York story’s opening chapters is that she doesn’t walk alone.

The Hidden Benefit of the New York Liberty’s Recent Trade

The trading of Sugar Rodgers for the return of Tanisha Wright seems questionable at best, but a crucial long-term benefit could lay within for the New York Liberty.

Net Rating Historically Critical to WNBA Title Hopes

A top-two seeding in the playoffs is of course especially lucrative and beneficial for one’s title hopes now given its guarantee of series play.  However, historically, a different top-two ranking has been even more predictive of who will win the championship -- season-long net rating.

      Lynx win, the legend lives  Minnesota wins Physical game 5 against L.A.  As the confetti rained down on "The Barn" the Minnesota Lynx raised up another trophy. The game came down to 3 things, Clutch Baskets-Rebounds-Aggression. The momentum of the game changed throughout but one thing stayed constant. Sylvia Fowles and Rebekkah Brunson would not forget the disaster of a performance they had controlling the paint game 5 last year.      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
          
             
                  
             
          
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


    

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
          
             
                  
             
          
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


           Scoring:     With all the headlines the winners get, I feel the need to remind fans of the proximity of the game. With the clock closing in on zero, the Sparks charged back making the game have a feel of an inevitable L.A. win.  Both teams played to their series successes all four quarters. When the final whistle blew the Lynx played a better game to pull off the win.
