Daily Links: Unfocused Mercury may be coasting in

  • San Antonio Sets Franchise Records In Decisive Rout Of Phoenix
    I am surprised to hear Coach Gaines go to the "they shot well" line yet again when the Mercury had a 53% to 32% advantage behind the line. The Silver Stars did shoot well and Sofia Young was unbelievable but it was the San Antonio defense and effort that did in the Mercury. There was no question from the opening tip who wanted that game more...much more. Only Diana's three point shot (4-5) kept it anything near close in the first half.
  • I generally don't sweat less the occasional loss but this one did bother me. I was expecting to see the Mercury compete harder and bring more playoff intensity. They were run out of the gym by San Antonio in a game that should have been much more closely contested. It feels like the team is actually taking a step back of late. The offense isn't nearly as smooth and dynamic and on the court chemistry between the guards is starting to worry me.

    There seems to be lot of distractions for the Mercury in Chicago. Let's hope they regain some focus and close out the season strong. A loss or even just a poor showing in this game and one has to worry that they are coasting into the playoffs
