Road Worry-ers. Tonight's rematch between the Mystics and the Sting (Comcast SportsNet at 7 PM) has the BasketCases just a little bit worried, given the team's "road work" so far this season. In Jon Gallo's preview of tonight's game, DeLisha Milton-Jones points out that "Just because we won [on Tuesday] doesn't mean we can expect the same thing to happen." The Mystics know they need to take care of business if they are going to break the road jinx. Charlotte will be playing without Tammy Sutton-Brown and Helen Darling, both of whom were injured earlier this week in the game at the Phone Booth. But with or without those players, the Mystics are taking nothing for granted. As Alana Beard points out in the Washington Post article: "We can't worry about who they have and who they don't have . . . . We need to worry about the Mystics." The BasketCases agree.

I like Christy & Byron's commentary on the game. I think that they are doing a great job.

Mystics are doing a great job! After the back-to-back win, they must feel pretty good right now. My only question is why does Laurie not play more? She is consistent with the 3 pointer.

Laurie's one of the BasketCases favorite players...but she's not exactly the most athletic player on the Mystics roster. We definitely lose something defensively when she's in. That's why we think Richie is picking and choosing situtations where he believes she can be successful. He's described her as a specialist. She seems to be pretty comfortable in that role. This season, as the team is learning Richie's playbook better, Laurie seems to be getting more good looks and she's knocking them down. That certainly was some performance from her last night! WOW.
