Minnesota Lynx vs. Washington Mystics
Who Wins? The Lynx. Lindsey Whalen, Maya Moore, and Seimone Augustus are the Big 3 of this team and the Big 3 are not going to lose to the Mystics. Even without the entire Big 3, the Lynx are still effective because they have a great bench. The defending champs are doing a great defending their honors. Candice Wiggins and Monica Wright come off the bench scoring and adding to the teams intensity.
The Mystics don’t have any threats to the Lynx team so they don’t have a big chance.The Lynx have great defense and offense so it’s going to take an exceptional team to beat them. Matee Ajavon, Crystal Langhorne, and Monique Currie are all great players but they don’t have the means to beat the Lynx.
Chicago Sky vs. San Antonio Silver Stars
Who Wins? Silver Stars. The Silver Stars have a young team but they have a good team. The Silver Stars have a great point guard in Becky Hammon. She may not score 20+ points a game but she knows who to give the ball to. The Silver Stars have several different scorers on the team. Danielle Adams, Shameka Christon, and Danielle Robinson have had great games this season and I’m sure they don’t plan on stopping. Adams and Robinson are one year players who play like they are 4 year players. They score just like everyone else. The Silver Stars can score inside and outside and anyone can take charge of the game.
The Sky have good team on paper but in an actual game things change. Swin Cash and Le’Coe Willingham aren’t playing the same without Sue Bird and the Storm. Cash played much better last season but I understand with the team change. The Sky aren’t capitalizing on all their stars. Sylvia Fowles and Epiphany Prince are still the only threats. Even though they have help, they aren’t being helped. These two players can’t do it all.
