We Are So Dead.

Tonight the seemingly invincible Los Angeles Sparks lost a double-OT game to the Tamika Catchings-less Indiana Fever . . . the Sparks being held to only 78 points in 50 minutes!

Something tells us that Lisa Leslie, Candace Parker, DeLisha Milton-Jones & Co. will be looking to exact some revenge at the expense of the next team they face. We wouldn't want to be that team!

Let's check the schedule . . . next up, LA Sparks @ Washington Mystics, Saturday, 3:30 PM, nationally televised on ABC. Uhh Ohh.

Nothing would make the BasketCases happier than to be completely WRONG! Hey, isn't that why they play the games?

I'm very underwhelmed by your optimism. Although, you're right. I'd rather have them undefeated and overconfident, than coming off a tough loss and looking for blood. I still have fears that the Phone Booth will be "L.A. East" Saturday. However, maybe we'll surprise them and we can launch into chants of "Beat L.A." or "Overrated!"

Please let's not launch the "Overrated" chant. For those of us that were at the Wiz vs Cavs game, Lebron showed us what Overrated really means :-). I just want us to compete, thats all we can ask. And if it remains close, we gotta shot. I think the crowd will be in it....let's just hope its the Mystic faithful and not some random, 1st time Candice watchers!

Go mystics!

Well put, Tee. And thank you. But, can we still do the "Beat L.A." chant?

Iam not saying that CP is overrated, shes a great player and she is good, but we have a great player in AB and if the players around her come to play, this team can compete with and beat any team. Taj for sure wants to win this one and she will give a good pep talk to her teammates. They can be beat after they have been beat and we can do it.

Ok Stewart...let's start the "beat LA" chant. :-). And I agree...we've got a great player in AB. I just hope AB, comes out agressive, on both ends of the floor. The team will feed off of her energy. Best case scenario...we get a 7-8 point lead in the first half, Tree will insert our weapon....Laurie Koehn. She'll drain a couple 3's, then we'll be up double digits at halftime! Go Mystics!!!

As long as they shut Delisha down, I will be satisfied.

Win or lose. Though I very much prefer winning.

Yep, the "overrated" chant would be both counterproductive and innacurrate. I do despise just about every LA team, including the Sparks, and wanted CP to go to the Lynx (no, not as "punidhment," I wanted good fortune for Minny but suppose they're happy w/Wiggins). Nevertheless she's a fantastic player, seems like a good person (her "Expect Great" ads are the best, tho that's pretty faint praise) and is good for the WNBA.

I'll happily join a "Beat LA" chant. 'Course, he Sparks are a little like Mystics West, with TJ, Muriel, KB and DMJ.
