    Preview: Sun (0-1) at Fever (0-2)
    Date: May 20, 2017 7:00 PM EDT


    A pair of winless teams will compete for their first victory of the season when the Indiana Fever host the Connecticut Sun on Saturday evening.


    The contest marks the regular-season home opener for the Fever (0-2), who posted an 8-9 record at home last season. Indiana has dropped its first two games this season against the Seattle Storm and Phoenix Mercury.


    Connecticut (0-1) also is trying to bounce back after losing its home opener against the Atlanta Dream. The Sun will play their first road game of the season after going 6-11 away from home in 2015-16.


    Connecticut second-year guard Courtney Williams will try to stay hot after making her first seven shots in Saturday's season opener against Atlanta. Williams finished with 18 points in 27 minutes.


    "I want to be more consistent, that's one of the main things I'm trying to do this year is be more dependable," Williams told the Sun's official website. "A lot of teams, when they scout me, I'm known as a (mid-range) jump shooter. So I worked on my outside game, so they have to respect that, as well."


    Indiana and Connecticut squared off against each other three times last season, with the Sun winning the season series 2-1. Connecticut outscored Indiana by a combined total of 31 points in three meetings.


    This season already has included another lopsided loss for the Fever, who were routed 85-62 by Phoenix on Wednesday. The defeat prompted Indiana coach Pokey Chatman to challenge her team.


    "This is big girl basketball," Chatman told the team's official website. "You can't let any team get comfortable in this league. ... We need to play with more pride from the opening tip."


    Four players are averaging double figures in the Fever's first two games. Tiffany Mitchell leads the way with 14.0 points per game and is followed closely by Briann January (13.5), Shenise Johnson (13.0) and Candice Dupree (11.0). On the boards, Erlana Larkins leads the team with 7.5 rebounds per game.


    Morgan Tuck will aim for her second consecutive 20-point performance after leading Connecticut with 21 points in the opener. Williams (18 points) and Jasmine Thomas (14) also netted double figures.


    Sun forward-center Jonquel Jones could provide a difficult challenge for the Fever's frontcourt. The 6-foot-6 George Washington alum led the nation in rebounding as a senior in college, and she pulled down a career-high 20 rebounds against Atlanta to start her second WNBA season.

    Preview: Lynx (2-0) at Wings (1-0)
    Date: May 20, 2017 8:00 PM EDT


    Kaela Davis hopes for a repeat of her impressive WNBA debut when the Dallas Wings host the Minnesota Lynx in their home opener Saturday night at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas.


    Davis, a first-year guard who helped lead South Carolina to a national championship in the NCAA Tournament in March, scored 20 points in her first professional game Sunday in the Wings' season-opening 68-58 win against the Phoenix Mercury.


    Dallas (1-0) trailed by two points at halftime despite a 10-point first half for Davis. The Wings pulled away in the fourth quarter, using a 19-9 run in the game's final 8:50 to seal the win.


    Skylar Diggins-Smith added seven points, three rebounds and three assists in the victory.


    The Wings return to College Park Center for their second home opener in Dallas after the franchise relocated from Tulsa ahead of last season. Dallas notched six of its 11 total wins at home last season and plans to lean heavily on its home fans once again.


    "One of the big impacts that the move from Tulsa to the Dallas area had is on our fan base. I think that right of the bat, the support (in Dallas) was amazing, and the team has been settling in better this year," Wings assistant coach Bridget Pettis told DallasVoice.com.


    Minnesota (2-0) is also coming off a win in Thursday's 90-71 rout of the host New York Liberty. Maya Moore scored 12 of her team-high 16 points in the second half and finished with 11 rebounds as the Lynx outscored the Liberty 47-31 in the final half. It was Moore's 29th career double-double.


    All five Lynx starters scored in double figures.


    "When everyone gets involved and we have that balanced scoring, it's a great thing for us," Moore said. "We always feel better when we can play to our potential."


    Lynx forward Rebekkah Brunson had four rebounds against the Liberty and enters Saturday's game one shy of 3,000 for her career. She would become the fifth player in league history to achieve that milestone.


    The Lynx also won their season opener Sunday, beating the Chicago Sky 70-61. Sylvia Fowles led the charge in that game with 26 points and 10 rebounds while Moore added 11 points.


    Minnesota won all three games against Dallas last season by an average of 18.3 points. After losing the first two meetings by a combined 54 points, the Wings kept it close in the season-series finale, a 98-97 overtime loss at home.

    Johnson leads Fever's rally in 81-79 win
    May 20, 2017



    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Shenise Johnson scored eight of her 13 points in the fourth quarter, including a go-ahead jumper with 46 seconds remaining, and the Indiana Fever rallied to beat the Connecticut Sun 81-79 on Saturday night.


    The Fever (1-2) ended a streak of four straight losses in home openers while also giving Pokey Chatman her first victory as Indiana's coach.


    Connecticut (0-2) was without starters Jasmine Thomas (attending brother's wedding) and Alyssa Thomas (concussion protocol), but led 45-40 at halftime and was up 11 in the final minute of the third quarter.


    Morgan Tuck's 3-pointer got the Sun within 76-75 with 16 seconds left but Connecticut was called for a dead-ball foul on Indiana's inbounds. The Fever converted the free throw and kept possession. Four free throws were then enough to ensure the win.


    Candice Dupree scored 19 points to lead Indiana.


    The Fever made 28 of 29 free throws while the Sun gave up 21 points off 18 turnovers.

    Davis looks to build off debut as Wings host Lynx


    Kaela Davis hopes for a repeat of her impressive WNBA debut when the Dallas Wings host the Minnesota Lynx in their home opener Saturday night at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas.

    Sunday’s six-pack


    Some over/under win totals for college football this coming fall:


    — Alabama 10.5, over -$150


    — Ohio State 10, over -$125


    — Penn State 9.5, under -$125


    — Florida State 9.5, over -$130


    — Clemson 9


    — Oklahoma 9.5, over -$145


    ***************************************

    Sunday’s List of 13: Random stuff on a spring Sunday……..



    13) Lebron James isn’t one of the three finalists for NBA’s MVP; they should change the name of the award to Player of the Year, because no one is as valuable to their team as James is to the Cavaliers. He is so consistently great he gets taken for granted.


    12) Atlanta Braves acquired 1B Matt Adams from St Louis for a minor leaguer; they need a bat with Freddie Freeman out for the next 2-3 months.


    11) Baseball oddity; in Jason deGrom’s last two starts, he had the same home plate umpire, Phil Cuzzi, who switched crews this week, for some reason. Very rare for the same umpire to work two starts in a row by the same pitcher.


    10) Cloud Computing ($28.80) won the Preakness, only the 4th time in the last 34 years the Preakness winner was a horse that didn’t run in the Kentucky Derby.


    9) White Sox are apparently close to signing 19-year old outfielder Luis Robert, who is thought to be the best unsigned Cuban prospect right now. The young man defected from Cuba and is Haiti these days— he is going to be really, really rich pretty soon.


    8) Best wishes to Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, who recently had an 8th operation on his right eye, after he detached a retina last year. Zimmer missed one game and coached another while wearing an eye patch.


    7) Texas Rangers quietly won ten games in a row; while they’re still 6.5 games behind Houston in the AL West, if the playoffs started now, Texas would be one of the Wild Card teams.


    6) When he went to the NBA Combine 10 years ago, Kevin Durant couldn’t lift 185 pounds, which isn’t good but hasn’t seemed to hamper his career much. Now Durant advises prospects to skip the combine. At some point in all of this scouting over-analysis, the primary question has to be: “Can he play?”, not “Is he is a candidate to win a gold medal in the clean-and-jerk?”


    5) Astros’ pitching ace Dallas Keuchel is on the 10-day DL with a pinched nerve in his neck. The new 10-day DL allows teams to simply skip a pitcher’s turn if he has a minor injury, which this one supposedly is.


    4) Pointspreads on Cavaliers (-14.5) and Warriors (-13.5) this weekend are the biggest in any NBA conference final game since 2005.


    3) Before the Nationals-Braves game Saturday, after the national anthem on what was Military Appreciation Day, Bryce Harper posed for pictures with service members for several minutes. Pretty cool to see; the media is so quick to point out bad things about people. Nice to see the good things these guys do.


    2) Oklahoma City Thunder’s Enes Kanter is from Turkey; he was traveling in Europe this weekend, but because of his political beliefs (I have no idea what they are), his passport was voided by the Turkish government. With no “valid” passport, Kanter was not allowed to enter Romania and was later put on a flight to London, on his way back to this country.


    NBA has thought about putting some teams in Europe eventually; you wonder if stuff like this will put a kibosh on those ideas. It is a crazy world out there.


    1) Think about this week in Washington, when Kurdish protestors were getting beat up by the Turkish president’s bodyguards out in the open on the street; Turkey must be a really fun place to live. We are lucky to live in this country; it isn’t perfect here, but it is a hell of a lot better than most places.

    Preview: Sky (0-2) at Dream (2-0)
    Date: May 21, 2017 3:00 PM EDT


    The Atlanta Dream are striving to build an identity early in the season, one based on ball movement and balance.


    That identity was on display Friday in the Dream's road victory over the Chicago Sky.


    The teams meet again Sunday in Atlanta.


    Tiffany Hayes led six Atlanta players in double figures with 23 points. Point guard Layshia Clarendon added 18 points and handed out seven of the Dream's 20 assists, and center Elizabeth Williams had 11 points and 11 rebounds.


    "A lot our identity I think so far is being shaped from being a balanced team ... and having really balanced scoring across the board," Clarendon told the Dream's website last week. "Our goal is to average 20 assists per game, so I think that's something we can focus on."


    Chicago point guard Cappie Pondexter led the Sky with 22 points against the Dream, and backcourt mate Tamera Young added 18 points for Chicago (0-2).


    The offseason saw the Sky ship superstar Elena Delle Donne to Washington in exchange for All-Star forward Stefanie Dolson, guard Kahleah Copper and a 2017 draft pick.


    Dolson teams with center Imani Boyette to give Chicago an imposing front line, but knows there will be an adjustment period in terms of finding her role with her new squad.


    "I am my own player," Dolson told the Chicago Sun Times. "I've been just saying, 'Do what they need me to do.' They have a good core already. It's just about fitting in and doing what they need me to do."


    The Dream also lost their superstar in the offseason, when Angel McCoughtry announced in January that she would sit out for at least part of the 2017 season.


    McCoughtry did not rule out returning this season, but said in a letter released by the team that she will not play for an undetermined portion of the season.


    McCoughtry's absence hasn't cost the Dream yet. Atlanta has opened the season with back-to-back road wins. The Dream followed up an 81-74 win at Connecticut with Friday's win at Chicago.


    The Dream (2-0) shot a sizzling 55.2 percent from the floor and outrebounded the Sky, 37-31. Chicago shot only 39.0 percent from the field.


    Atlanta won two of three meetings with the Sky last season.


    The Dream was without forward Aneika Henry-Morello in Friday's game. The 6-foot-4 forward is dealing with a left foot injury. Her status for Sunday's game was unknown.

    Preview: Mystics (1-1) at Storm (1-1)
    Date: May 21, 2017 7:00 PM EDT


    Elena Delle Donne is filling the Washington Mystics' need for an offensive force, averaging 25.5 points through the season's first two games.


    Only one player in the WNBA is averaging more points than Delle Donne, the league's 2015 Most Valuable Player acquired by the Mystics during the offseason. That player is Seattle guard Jewell Loyd, who along with Breanna Stewart is fueling the Storm's rebuilding plan.


    Loyd is producing 26 points per game.


    The league's most prolific scorers meet Sunday in Seattle when the Storm (1-1) host the Mystics (1-1).


    After a season-opening home win over San Antonio, Washington headed West for a Friday matchup against defending WNBA champion Los Angeles. Delle Donne led the Mystics in scoring both times, including 27 against the Sparks, but the outcome was different against Los Angeles.


    Washington trailed by 12 points after the first quarter and never recovered, falling 99-89.


    "They did most of their damage in the first quarter," Mystics coach Mike Thibault said of the Sparks, who led 34-22 after one quarter and 59-48 at halftime despite 15 points from Delle Donne.


    "End of the first, their traps turned us over a couple of times. (We) took a couple of bad shots, sped us up a little bit," Thibault said. "We knew we were going to get that kind of pressure coming here."


    There was some pressure on Delle Donne upon joining Washington via a trade with the Chicago Sky in the league's biggest transaction of the offseason.


    The Mystics, coming off a 13-21 season, have posted a winning record only once since 2010. Now they are considered a title contender thanks to the additions of Delle Donne and Kristi Toliver to go with holdovers Emma Meesseman and Tayler Hill.


    Delle Donne is averaging 25.5 points through two games. Though her trademark 3-point touch hasn't arrived yet (1 of 6), she is shooting 64 percent (16 of 25) from the field and has made 18 of 19 free throws.


    Loyd is thriving from deep. The second-year player sank 3 of 4 3-point tries and scored 27 points in Seattle's 87-82 win over Indiana on May 14. She scored 25 points and made two 3-pointers the previous day during a 78-68 loss at Los Angeles.


    Stewart scored 15 points against the Fever and hit the go-ahead 3-pointer for a 79-77 lead with 1:40 remaining.


    "You saw a team that's developed toughness and is figuring out how to make plays on both ends of the floor," Seattle coach Jenny Boucek told the Storm's website. "I didn't think we played great. We didn't have a lot of gas in the tank because we used a lot of it (at Los Angeles), but they showed a lot of toughness to figure out a way to win when they weren't feeling their best, which is huge for us."


    Crystal Langhorne, who began her career with Washington, scored 17 points for Seattle on 7-of-8 shooting against Indiana.


    The Mystics went 1-2 against the Storm last season, but their win came in Seattle.


    Meesseman, who leads the Mystics with an average of five assists per game, scored 19 points in Washington's 84-82 victory over Seattle last May 26. Loyd had 26 points in the other game in Seattle as the Storm dominated 80-51 on July 15.

    ATLANTA (AP) Stefanie Dolson tied her career high with 23 points on 10-of 13 shooting to help the Chicago Sky beat the Atlanta Dream 75-71 on Sunday.


    Dolson also had eight rebounds and five blocks.


    Cappie Pondexter added 20 points and 11 assists, and Jessica Breland had a season-high 12 rebounds and three blocked shots for Chicago (1-2). The Sky trailed by 13 points in the first half.


    Clarendon and Tiffany Hayes scored 17 points apiece for Atlanta (2-1). Hayes was helped to the locker room after an apparent ankle injury suffered in the closing seconds.


    STORM 81, MYSTICS 71


    SEATTLE (AP) - Jewell Loyd scored 26 points on 10-of-14 shooting in Seattle's victory over Washington.


    Loyd was 3 for 3 from 3-point range. Crystal Langhorne scored 12 of her 17 points in the second half, and Sue Bird added nine points and 10 assists for the Storm (2-1).


    Elena Delle Donne led Washington (1-2) with 14 points, and Tayler Hill had 13.

    Mercury's Diana Taurasi suspended
    May 21, 2017



    NEW YORK (AP) Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi has been suspended one game without pay for hitting San Antonio Stars forward Dearica Hamby in the back of the head with a forearm.


    The WNBA said Sunday she will serve her suspension Tuesday, when the Mercury hosts the New York Liberty.


    Taurasi was assessed a technical foul with 4:09 remaining in the second quarter of the Mercury's 78-72 victory Friday. The league reviewed the play, and rescinded the technical but upgraded the play to a flagrant foul 2.

    Betting Recap - 5/13-5/21
    May 22, 2017


    League Betting Notes (Saturday, May 13 through Sunday, May 21)



    -- Favorites went 13-3 straight up (SU)
    -- Underdogs went 10-6 against the spread (ATS)
    -- Home teams posted a 9-7 SU record
    -- Road teams posted a 10-6 ATS record
    -- The 'under' went 10-6


    Team Betting Notes


    -- Atlanta (2-1) kicked off its season with a pair of road wins and covers, posting its first 2-0 start since the 2014 season. The second victory came at the expense of Chicago (1-2), who began life after Elena Della Donne, who was traded in the offseason. However, it was the Sky winning the second end of the home-and-home in Atlanta, winning 75-71 as 6 1/2-point underdogs to fire out to a 2-1 ATS start.


    -- Washington (1-2) suffered a 10-point setback at Seattle (2-1) on Sunday, as the Mystics dropped to 0-3 ATS to kick off their campaign. The 81-71 loss was also the first 'under' result for Washington after a pair of 'over' finishes. The cover Sunday for the Storm was its first of the season in three tries.


    -- New York (1-1) split their first two games. They topped San Antonio (0-3) to fire out of the chute with a win, but the Liberty failed to cover in either of the outings, including a 90-71 blasting from Minnesota (3-0) at home. The Liberty should be well rested with five days between that outing against the Lynx and a trip to face Phoenix (2-1) on Tuesday.


    -- The Stars might be winless in three tries, but they have been keeping it close. They're 3-0 ATS to start the season, covering all three games as double-digit underdogs.


    -- The Lynx will play host to Connecticut (0-2) on Tuesday, and their modest two-game 'over' streak will be put to the test. The 'under' is 2-0 for the Sun so far out of the box.


    -- The 'under' is a perfect 3-0 for the Mercury through three outings, but they're just 1-2 ATS during the early going.


    -- Indiana (1-2) has failed to cover each of the past two while the 'under' has cashed in each outing.


    -- Dallas (1-1) split their first two outings of the season, topping the Mercury as eight-point underdogs in the desert on May 14. They also played the Lynx tough, dropping an 89-87 decision on Saturday as 10 1/2-point underdogs. As such, the Wings are an impressive 2-0 ATS to start.


    -- Last, but certainly not least, the defending champion Los Angeles (2-0) have won and covered their first two games at home, winning by an average of 10.0 points per game. They'll hit the road for the first time, kicking off a three-game sojourn against the Fever on Wednesday.

    Tuesday’s six-pack



    Some over/under win totals for college football this coming fall:




    — Utah 6.5, over -$120




    — Virginia Tech, 9




    — Washington, 9.5




    — Washington State 7.5, over -$125




    — West Virginia 7, over -$120




    — Wisconsin 9.5, over -$125




    **********************************




    Tuesday’s List of 13: Nobody asked me, but……..




    13) Apparently there are severe political problems in Venezuela which are stressing out lot of the Venezuelan ballplayers playing in the major leagues here.




    Chip Caray said on the Braves game last night there are over 90 players/coaches from Venezuela in professional baseball right now. If a ballplayer here speaks out against what is going on there, it can have severe repercussions for his family back home. Not a good situation.




    12) So far, 631 college basketball players have announced the intent to transfer; 271 of them haven’t said where they’re going yet. Thats just about two transfers per Division I team.




    11) According to people in Las Vegas who know about such things, when Celtics (+16) won Game 3 in Cleveland Sunday, it was the third biggest upset in ANY NBA game in the last 22 years, coming after a Nuggets (+17) upset of Washington in ’97 and the Lakers’ (+17) upset of Golden State last fall.




    10) Gonzaga/Creighton signed to play a home/home series; sounds a made-for-TV deal, which is good for us, the viewing public. Good for Gonzaga’s strength of schedule, too. Creighton plays in the Big East, so their SOS doesn’t need the help.




    9) No baseball team has ever started 12-24 or worse and rallied to make the playoffs.




    8) Last fall, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones gave around 200 policemen in North Little Rock game tickets and transportation to Cowboys’ games in Dallas, as a way of thanking them for their service. Now all that has been ruled an ethics violation, for the cops accepting the gifts. Jones refused reimbursement; seems to me that all this lacks some common sense, but thats just me.




    7) Monday was former major league pitcher Tommy John’s 74th birthday; the crafty lefty pitched 2,544 innings AFTER the revolutionary elbow surgery in 1963, that now bears his name.




    6) Atlanta Hawks’ Paul Millsap is voiding the last year for his $21.4M contract and will become a free agent this summer. Millsap is 32 but still a highly productive player.




    5) Braves 5, Pirates 2— Ender Inciarte had five hits for the Braves, first Atlanta player to do that since Jason Hayward four years ago.




    Newly acquired Matt Adams homered for the Braves, making him the first person to homer for two different teams in brand new SunTrust Park— he homered for St Louis there earlier this season.




    4) We talked a few days ago about Arizona’s Chris Iannetta getting hit by a pitch in the face, breaking his nose and a couple of teeth. Iannetta came off the 7-day DL Sunday and hit a homer in his first at-bat back, which can’t be an easy thing to do.




    3) Warriors 129, Spurs 115— Took Kevin Durant’s advice and watched baseball instead. Golden State now awaits the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, assuming Cleveland can put away an underdog Celtics team playing without its best player, Isaiah Thomas.




    This was the last NBA game for Manu Ginobili, who had a great, great career.




    2) Two drivers who will compete in the Indianapolis 500 this weekend were robbed at gunpoint of a drive-thru window at a Taco Bell in Indianapolis Sunday night. The crime was perpetrated by two kids, a 14 and 15-year old, at 9:40 pm. I have no idea what else to say about this.




    1) Nashville 6, Anaheim 3— Predators are in the Stanley Cup final for the first time ever.

    Preview: Sun (0-2) at Lynx (3-0)
    Date: May 23, 2017 8:00 PM EDT


    Three games into the WNBA season, the Minnesota Lynx are in a familiar position atop the Western Conference standings.


    Minnesota (3-0), which has won 20 straight games during the month of May, returns home after two road games to face the Connecticut Sun (0-2) on Tuesday at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn.


    It's the first of back-to-back matchups for the teams (they meet Friday in Connecticut) this week.


    The Sun squandered an 11-point lead in the second half on Saturday in an 81-79 loss to the Indiana Fever in Indianapolis. But the Lynx aren't taking their opponent lightly.


    "They are a real challenge to guard," Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve told WNBA.com. "This is a team that is first in second-chance points. ... They just get you twisted. They do a great job in their pick-and-roll options. They know if you cover it a certain way, do this. It's a part of their identity and we are going to be challenged."


    The Sun, who were 14-20 in 2016, took two of three last year from the Lynx, who finished a league-best 28-6.


    "I know they beat us twice last year," Minnesota guard Lindsay Whalen told the website. "They play really well, they play really quick. They beat us both times out there last year, so we have to come ready to go.


    "We know they have a lot of really talented players. ... We'll tip it up tomorrow and we'll play hard."


    Minnesota is coming off an 89-87 win over the Dallas Wings on Saturday night.


    Center Sylvia Fowles, who followed her 26-point, 10-rebound performance on opening night with 27 points on Saturday, was named WNBA Western Conference Player of the Week.


    "I was glad we won, it's obviously what you want going into it," Whalen said after Monday's practice. "We are going to take a look at some things, we have some stuff we can work on, so we'll just continue to work on those things and try to get better as a group.


    "Overall for a two-game road trip early in the year, it felt good to get both wins."


    Minnesota also beat the Liberty 90-71 last week in New York.


    "The New York game was a good game. We shared the ball, we made simple plays, we defended. That was our best game out of the three," Reeve said. "We aren't happy with where we are. We are happy with talking about this, having won three games and sitting here with three wins.


    "To get where we are trying to go and to be a great team, we are far from that. We need to close that gap in a hurry."


    Sun guard Alex Bentley took some of the blame for Connecticut's narrow loss in Indiana.


    "Late in the fourth quarter, we didn't go back to what was working -- going inside," Bentley told The Indianapolis Star after the game. "Our post players should have gotten the ball a lot more, and I put that on myself."


    After Friday's rematch, Connecticut plays three straight road games.

    Preview: Liberty (1-1) at Mercury (2-1)
    Date: May 23, 2017 10:00 PM EDT


    The Phoenix Mercury will be without guard Diana Taurasi for Tuesday night's home game against the New York Liberty.


    Taurasi is suspended for one game for a flagrant foul-2 during Friday's win at San Antonio, when she used her forearm to hit Stars forward Dearica Hamby in the back of the head during the second quarter.


    Officials originally assessed a technical foul before the play was upgraded to the more serious violation, which calls for a suspension without pay.


    New York (1-1) is also down a key player -- and will be for the rest of the season. The Liberty lost starting guard Brittany Boyd to a torn Achilles' tendon on Thursday night in a loss to Minnesota.


    "You have to move on. This league doesn't stop," Liberty coach Bill Laimbeer said. "There are no days off. We're going to war with what we have."


    Bria Hartley, acquired in an offseason trade with the Washington Mystics, is expected to step into the starting lineup Tuesday night at Talking Stick Resort Arena.


    The Mercury (2-1) could opt to start the game with two point guards, with Leilani Mitchell (11.0 points per game off the bench) joining Danielle Robinson. Taurasi, who needs 145 points to become the WNBA career scoring leader, has struggled this season, shooting 21.2 percent from the field and 22.2 percent from 3-point range.


    The marquee matchup will be in the post, with New York's Tina Charles battling Phoenix's Brittney Griner, who has posted consecutive double-doubles. The 6-foot-9 Griner is second in the league in scoring at 23.3 points per game and has made 20 of 27 shots in the past two games.


    She is being asked to be a bigger part of the offense this season after Phoenix replaced everybody but her and Taurasi from last season's roster.


    "I keep telling her, she can be as good as she wants, as long as she is ready to play in that regard," Phoenix coach Sandy Brondello said. "She has really good guards around her. They are feeding her the ball at the right time. "


    Charles led the WNBA in scoring and rebounding last season. She battled illness last week and is averaging only 9.0 points and 7.0 rebounds through two games. She won the matchups with Griner last season, averaging 26.7 points and 11.0 rebounds in three games against Phoenix, and Griner was at 10.0 and 5.7.


    "We know Griner is a big part of Phoenix," Laimbeer said of Tuesday's matchup, "so we put a couple wrinkles in defensive-wise to see what we can do there."


    New York is starting a two-game road trip that will end at the Seattle Storm on Friday. Phoenix stays at home for a game against the Dallas Wings on Saturday.

    SAINT PAUL, Minn. (AP) Sylvia Fowles had 21 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks to help the Minnesota Lynx beat the Connecticut Sun 80-78 on Tuesday night.


    Seimone Augustus added 16 points, including nine in the third quarter, for the Lynx (4-0).


    Morgan Tuck hit a 3-pointer from the wing to pull Connecticut to 80-78 with 19.8 seconds left and Lindsay Whalen missed two free throws at the other end. After a timeout, Connecticut worked the ball around but a jump ball was called with 2.2 seconds left. The Sun gained possession but weren't able to get off a shot.


    Maya Moore added 12 points, six rebounds and five assists for Minnesota, which is ranked second in the AP power poll. Rebekkah Brunson grabbed seven rebounds to move into fourth on the all-time WNBA list.


    Jasmine Thomas made a career-high five 3-pointers and scored 18 points for 11th-ranked Connecticut (0-3). Jonquel Jones added 16 points and Tuck finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds.


    Minnesota has won 21 straight games in the month of May since 2012.


    LIBERTY 69, MERCURY 67

    PHOENIX (AP) - Epiphanny Prince hit a go-ahead jumper with 4.5 seconds left and the Liberty held off the Mercury.


    Prince dribbled down the clock and used two high screens to sink the jumper from the wing. After a timeout, Leilani Mitchell drove to the basket but her shot was blocked by Sugar Rodgers.


    Prince was 10 of 14 from the field, including four 3-pointers, and finished with 24 points. Tina Charles added 22 points and 11 rebounds for New York (2-1), which is ranked fourth in the AP power poll.


    Phoenix (2-2) struggled offensively for much of the game without star Diana Taurasi. She was serving a one-game suspension after an incident in last Friday's game against San Antonio. She was called for a technical foul during the game but the league office ruled it a level two flagrant foul.


    New York led by 15 points with 2:47 left in the third quarter but Phoenix closed on a 12-0 run and led 67-62 with 2:51 left. Prince hit a 3-pointer and Kia Vaughn a hook shot to tie it with 1:42 left to set up the exciting finish.


    Brittney Griner led Phoenix with 19 points and six blocks.

    Wednesday’s six-pack


    Some over/under win totals for college football this coming fall:


    — Miami, 8.5, under -$120


    — Louisville 9, over -$120


    — Kentucky 6, over -$130


    — TCU 7, over -$125


    — Tennessee 7.5, under -$130


    — Texas 7.5, under -$120


    *************************************


    Wednesday’s List of 13: Mid-week musings……..


    13) Washington Nationals are only current division leader in the major leagues who were in the playoffs last season. Lot of upheaval early this year.


    12) Why would you catch a home run at a big league ballgame and throw it back on the field? That bothers me every time I see it; you catch a home run, keep the damn thing or give it to a little kid.


    Speaking of home runs, Cincinnati’s Amir Garrett has allowed 10 homers in his last 25.1 IP, which is not good.


    11) Nationals 10, Mariners 1— From Justin Havens on Twitter: Seattle’s Christian Bergman is the first big league pitcher since 1950 to allow 14+ hits, 10+ runs in a game, without striking anyone out. Much of the damage against Bergman came during a very steady rain, but still, hard to believe he isn’t on his way back to AAA as you read this.


    10) Xavier got great news Tuesday; star guard Trevon Bluiett will be back with the Musketeers this winter; decisions like this turn teams from marginal contenders to top 25 teams, with an outside shot to make the Final Four.


    9) Mets 9, Padres 3— For the third time in their last four games, San Diego’s starting pitcher allowed 5+ runs in the first inning. Hell of a job GM AJ Preller is doing— he went to Cornell, so of course he is qualified to run a major league baseball team.


    Meanwhile the manager Preller fired in San Diego two years ago, Bud Black, has the Colorado Rockies in first place. Black went to San Diego State.


    8) Baseball oddity last night: Michael Conforto is the first Met leadoff hitter EVER to drive in three runs in the first inning of a game.


    Conforto homered to lead off the game, then when the Mets batted around, he knocked in two more runs in his next AB.


    7) SLS Hotel/Casino was sold this week to the owners of the Grand Sierra in Reno. SLS has the smallest hotel room I’ve ever seen— I was laughing when I first checked in at how small it was, but SLS is a cool place with lot of good food choices. Not much of a sportsbook, though.


    6) If you see the Progressive Insurance commercial where the guys are in a man cave watching football, the game on that TV is from the USFL around 30 years ago— Jm Kelly playing for the Houston Gamblers, against the Memphis Showboats (I think it is Memphis).


    If companies use NFL highlights for commercials, they have to pay for them. Old USFL footage is apparently free, even though Donald Trump owned one of the teams (NJ Generals).


    5) Over the last seven years, Oregon’s basketball team is 33-15 against the spread when getting points in a conference game— Vanderbilt is 27-13-1 over the last four years as an SEC underdog.


    4) Since joining the WCC, BYU is 2-11 against the spread in WCC tournament games; 2-6 when a favorite, 0-5 when an underdog.


    3) Odd fact of the day: 18% of the world’s milk comes from India, making India the largest supplier of milk/butter in the world. They said it on Pawn Stars; it must be true.


    2) Cavaliers 112, Celtics 99— Cleveland leads this series 3-1.


    1) Bad news for my right thumb; Odell Beckham Jr got a huge deal with Nike this week, meaning there will be a flood of commercials with the Giants’ WR this season and in coming years, which means increased use of the mute button on my remote and/or simply changing channels.
