In 11 years of following the Mystics, we have to say that tonight's loss to the Liberty, 79-60, was one of the most disappointing performances we've ever seen. We kept looking for signs of a "team," but frankly, all we saw was a collection of individual players. No coherent offense. No discernible defensive coordination. Were we missing something or is there something missing with this "team"?
Taj put up 26 points and 12 rebounds. She came to play. Alana added 20 points, mostly creating her own shots. We certainly can't fault those two players. But where was the rest of the "team"? 0-6 (Mo), 0-5 (Blue), 1-4 (Coco) from our guards/small forward does not win ballgames. Only 9 assisted baskets does not win ballgames. 1-9 from behind the arc does not win ballgames. Where's the coaching? What's the plan? Maybe the answers will come Sunday. We certainly hope so.
