Great couple of semifinal game 3 match ups tonight:
The Liberty outlasted the Mystics, 79-74. Talk about consistency: New York center Tina Charles had 22 points, as she did in games one and two.
Both WNBA president Laurel Richie and NBA commissioner Adam Silver were in the audience, as was filmmaker Spike Lee.
The Liberty advance to the Eastern Conference finals, where they’ll face the Indiana Fever, who were at Madison Square Garden tonight for the game. Why? Because the East finals begin TOMORROW!
Holy no preparation, Batman. What’s the hurry? I hope the Liberty have lots of protein shakes and ice baths tonight.
On the West side……
The Lynx knocked out the Sparks, 91-80.
Minnesota advances to the Western Conference finals, where they take on the Phoenix Mercury – who have been resting since Sunday, after sweeping the Tulsa Shock Saturday night.
That game is Thursday.
More WNBA news…..
Chicago has to focus on defense to become a championship team.
Mystics fans aren’t buying the official reason for the team’s move out of downtown D.C.
Rookie Brittany Boyd grew up this season.
