We expected it to be a rematch a chance to redeem ourselves and do to them what they did to us in our house… but the truth is we weren’t prepared. Although we played within reach of tying throughout the game not once we went ahead and we only tied the game once. They beat us at the paint and with fast breaks… we ‘beat’ them at the one stat no team wants to lead: Turnovers!
TOs were the cause of our dismay during Q4 on opening day and they continue to be a problem area. I guess that is a measure of the lack of team chemistry and hopefully it will dissipate as the season matures.
There is one thing LA remembered from last week’s game in Seattle: Ann Wauters! They defended her like there was no tomorrow and it was somewhat effective. Still, Ann managed to be the leading scorer and rebounder for Seattle. Camille, Tina and Katie all went for double digits as well.
Kudos to Candace, Toliver & Beard, leading LA scorers. CP3 put on a show in almost all areas, shooting, rebounding, blocking and assisting… but the play of the night was definitely an off-balance, on the edge of the court, 3-point shot by our very own Katie Smith.
Definitely, not the way we wanted to start this year… W0-2L 0.000% It is a young season but and odd one due to the Olympics… Let’s focus on reaching the playoffs!
