You will not understand how insane this game way until you watch the highlights, so here you go!
Storm came out rolling, happy to be back after a 3 game road trip. Completely dominating in the first quarter, stretching out to get the 10 point lead. Possible blow out on their home court? You would think so since the Storm at one point did hold an 18 point lead, however if you think the Suns were about to go out like that, think again. The Suns are that team that no one can ever get comfortable with. They have shown many times that they refuse to just roll over and die!
With every new quarter, their the Suns were, right on the Storms heels. Inching closer and closer to gain the lead. The lead, something they finally took back, at just the right moment….for a Suns fan of course. With just 3 seconds left, Tina Charles get’s Jones put back and the Suns go up on the scoreboard!
Game over? Uhhhhhh was the game over when the Sparks were up and the Storm needed to make it into the Playoffs in 2008? NOPE
*Enter Sue Bird* 2 seconds remaining, dun dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
SUE BIRD FOR THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Haha, heart crusher for Sun fans, Victory for Storm fans!!! And that is the game folks!!
But let’s not get beside ourselfs, two things learned here tonight.
- Seattle is back where they need to be, and they have finally learned to close a game.
- Suns are a really good team, and they will make a come back! So never get to comfortable with them!
Birdy clearly gets the game ball tonight!! Game high of 20 points, as well as 3 assist and 5 rebounds? Is this a guard or a small forward? Haha!! Sue Bird not only has stepped it up offensively, but also has taken on even more of the leader role. With her friend/teammate being injured, Bird has become the leader for this team. Always their to calm her team down in situations just like today. No one was sure of it in the beginning of the season, but it evident now that the Storm are hungry for another Championship.
And this is just her 2nd season?? Tina Charles does it all. Easily can be said that she is the key to the Sun’s success. Last night “TT” walked off the court with 18 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 assist. Also with 2 steals and 2 blocks. What makes this Big so much better than the rest?? Teamwork. Not too many bigs know how to dish out the ball like this lady here. Always finding her smaller teamates and setting them up for their own jumper. At just her sophmore year in the wnba, it is clear this girl will be a Hall of Fame contender.
Renee Montgomery also had a great game! 19 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assist, and 2 steals! Uconn was as always, done right tonight!
