Like I said before, I don’t know much. I’ve watched two games here this year and from what I can glean, Seattle is just better than L.A. Plain and simple. This game, in Los Angeles, started off a little rough, with the … (I really should be able to remember these team names by now) … Sparks taking an early 1st quarter lead.
But, all it took was a little defense, a little rebounding, a little Getting To The Line, and with a 27-16 2nd quarter, the throats of the Sparks were sufficiently stomped.
I also know that Lauren Jackson is GOOD. Bigger than everyone on the court, able to handle her bid-ness on defense, will body for the tough boards, and hey, she can hit the long-range jumper. 8-18, 24 points, including 2-6 from 3. Tack on 9 boards, 3 blocks and 3 more steals, my GOD, Lauren Jackson will you have my athletic baby?
Seems like everyone in the WNBA is sweeping their first round series’; it’s on to Phoenix for the finals. I can safely say I’m almost excited.
