Tonight’s game one thriller was the highest-scoring game in regular or playoff season in WNBA history. That box score is fascinating. On both teams, players really stepped up when a couple of their teammates were having an off-night. Wow.

If games 2-5 are like this one, we will be in for some butt-clenching.

The other day, Indiana Pacers GM Larry Bird bought out the balcony of Conseco Fieldhouse for the Fever’s final conference game. Tonight Phoneix Suns GM Steve Kerr bought out the upper level of the US Airways Center. I love these guys!

This was a big news day even before the game.

Earlier today, Diana Taurasi was named WNBA MVP.

ESPN’s Mechelle Voepel talked with Taurasi, who has been at her lowest with a drunk-driving arrest in June, to her highest now.

And the Indy Star has a beautific piece on Tamika Catchings.

The Sparks’ Tina Thompson signed a three-year contract with the organization earlier this year, but now says she doesn’t know if she will be back next year.

In fact, the LA Times report that the Sparks as a team has an uncertain future.
