Interesting opening weekend after the Olympic break.

Today’s results:

The Dream dropped Connecticut, 87-73.

Dallas struggled to play a full game, as Chicago defeated them, 92-85.

The Lynx pulled away to beat the Storm, 92-80. Lindsay Whalen lead Minnesota with 24 points.

The Stars played a strong game and held on to beat the Mystics, 85-74.

The Mercury edged the Sparks, 70-66. That’s two wins in a row for Phoenix, two consecutive losses for LA.

Thoughts:

– I anticipated Dallas would have a better start after the break.

– The Sky look fresh and energized – especially Elena Delle Donne.

– Lindsay Whalen is underrated.

– The young Storm have a very bright future.

– The Stars were leading the Mystics by 23 points midway through the game. Wow.

– What’s up with the Sparks?

– Why isn’t Brittney Griner dominating?

– I like Swin Cash as a broadcaster.
