    what has hurt WASH a little is when she takes over a game completely like today and the last game and the guards do next to nothing, no on else is involved. Not a problem during regular season—but in the playoffs you need every player working together and a threat to score. WASh sometimes gets a little lazy relying on EDD even for the 3-point shots—-she is maybe the best player (Howard up there as well IMO) but Cloud and Tolliver are MIA lately.

    Howard is too inconsistent to be up there. I think Cambage is 2nd but a lot of that has to do with her simply being bigger than everyone else. As far as skills go though, EDD is by far the best and it’s not close imo. She takes over games cause they need her to. Without EDD they’re a bad team. I believe they’re 0-5 now without her this season and most ended up in blowouts.

    Why is Atl coach playing the bench the entire 2nd quarter?

    Other than E. WIlliams the starters are 2-for-15

  • sox9

    Bentley is like 0-for her last 50!

  • bure10

    Cloud double what Tolliver has ugh

    Remember Howard is doing it w/o Breanna , w/o Sue Bird, and w/o Loyd (lately). SEA is 12-8 and that is amazing missing more than half a team. Howard is the reason why. Plus unlike EDD she rarely misses a game.

    I won’t argue about EDD though—-the team cannot win w/o her and that is for damn sure

    EDD has more character than probably anyone in the league. She cannot help when she gets hurt and has a lot of nagging injuries every year it seems. She plays through a lot of it. Personal character as well is amazing. A true role model

    And Coffey came in and hit a couple threes but their best chance is with Sykes, offensively and defensively

    That’s true, although Canada has been playing very well also. But at the same time, when Stewart and Bird come back Howard won’t be putting up those numbers.

    Game is getting ugly. Just need EDD to get another 10 before she sits the 4th.

    maybe, but every team is keying on stopping Howard, collapsing on Howard, every opposing team every game. And at 6’2’‘ 160ish she is hardly a beast. Breanna and Bird will open space for her, especially Stewart (next year). Her numbers will still likely drop a bit I agree. But neither WASH or SEA can win w/o those two. I probably give the edge to EDD—-maybe by not as much as you—but pretty much agree.

    ATL and DAL coaches are a complete mystery. Their player rotations leave almost everyone on the team guessing as to their role and are having their motivation killed

    and what a coincidence they’re probably the two worst teams in the league

    I think the EDD fade is gonna turn out alright. No real reason to play her anymore

    Damn it, needed at least 40 from her.

    edit: she’s back in to start the 4th

  • byo34

    Just gotta hope Fowles outscores EDD and I will be happy.

    Powers my only player this game, pretty solid for only $5,600.

  • sox9

    Not sure why EDD is still in the game. CONN would never risk their stars up 20 or more points w/under 9 minutes left

    you don’t risk you key player like that, the one player the team cannot afford to lose. great for fantasy, but really bad coaching decision esp. since she is prone to injury/re-injury. One good hard smack on that mask w/an elbow that breaks it or jams into her nose, I dunno. ATL is no the team they need to send a message to or intimidate. ATL season is already over

    plus the left knee still heavily braced

    Yeah the fade wasn’t looking too bad until some questionable coaching.

  • sox9

    Meessemen’s role is lost on this team. She’s a star player, double:double on almost any other team—-Hawkins, Powers, LaToya competing w/her for time in a 3-guard offense. All four of them struggle for 20 minutes. EDD still scoring up by23 w/ 5 minutes left, smh—borders on bad sportsmanship by WASH coach

    It sends a bad message to the rest of the WASH players, like we don’t trust you to close out the game w/a 23 point lead and 5 inutes left—despite playing a team that cannot score 25 points w/ a full quarter left, and at the same time shut out WASH the rest of the way w/o a single point. Stupid coaching—-the norm for the WNBA

    WAS always plays starters into the 4th regardless of score.

    I think he was keeping EDD in her regular rotation which is to come back in at the start of the 4th. They were up 20, it’s a borderline spot but he opted to play it straight up.
