Getting a feel for how this thing might go

I know it’s early, but……Sparks, Lynx, Sun and Mystics still on top? The Fever and Sky still rebuilding? The Storm might be the Connecticut Sun of this season? The Mercury still underachieving?

We will see.

Today’s preseason results:

The Sparks dropped the China National Team, 82-61. Chelsea Gray and Riquna Williams returned for Los Angeles.

The Mystics routed the Fever, 91-56.

The Lynx dominated the Fever, 87-58, in Maya Moore’s return to the court.

A strong fourth quarter propelled the Storm past the Mercury, 84-61. Seattle rookie Jordin Canada led all scorers with 17 points.
