    Washington's Delle Donne looks to burn Liberty again


    Twice the New York Liberty could not stop Elena Delle Donne from making clutch shots in the fourth quarter.


    First, she sank a dramatic buzzer beater on June 28 to lift the Washington Mystics to an 80-77 win. A week later, she scored 11 of her 21 points in the fourth quarter to help the Mystics secure a double-digit win over the Liberty.


    The venue will change but the priority for New York remains trying to contain Delle Donne and the rest of the Mystics Saturday afternoon at the Westchester Civic Center in White Plains, N.Y.


    Delle Donne is averaging 21.5 points on 42 percent shooting in the first two meetings, and two weeks ago against New York, she made 4 of 6 shots in the final 10 minutes on a night when the forward shot 8 of 19.


    "This is a big one. I've never had one that had to be so quick. This one flew by really fast," Delle Donne said after hitting the buzzer-beater in the first meeting with New York. "My teammates made it the most fun I've ever had."


    Since Delle Donne's last clutch performance against the Liberty, Washington (13-10) is 2-4 in its last six games. Delle Donne also is coming off one of her worst outings when she was 3 of 14 from the floor and was held to nine points in an 81-70 loss to the Dallas Wings on Thursday.


    It was the third time Delle Donne was held to single digits, and the Mystics are hoping the follow up resembles what she did following an eight-point showing against Minnesota on June 7. Six days later she totaled 36 points on 13-of-22 shooting in a 95-91 win at Connecticut.


    Delle Donne's quiet night was hardly the lone problem for Washington against Dallas. The Mystics were unable to stop Liz Cambage, who torched the Mystics for 35 points two days after setting the league record with 53 against the Liberty.


    If Delle Donne has a quiet showing, the Mystics will be intrigued to see whether LaToya Sanders can follow up her career-high 25-point showing from Thursday or whether Kristi Tolliver can rebound from going 3 of 12 from the floor.


    New York is hoping not to allow another record-setting performance. After getting dominated by Cambage, the Liberty allowed Renee Montgomery to set a team record by hitting seven 3-pointers for the Atlanta Dream in the Dream's 82-68 victory on Thursday.


    New York's two losses in Washington are part of a stretch of 10 losses in the past 13 games for the Liberty, who are 4-8 at home.


    Tina Charles combined for 44 points in the two losses in Washington but often has little help. She was the lone New York player in double figures Thursday with 11 points and the Liberty are 2-11 when Charles does not get at least 20 points.

    Mercury still looking to get back on track vs. Lynx


    The Phoenix Mercury thought returning home for only the second time in the last 10 games could rejuvenate the team after losing three games on a four-game road trip.


    The Mercury, however, are still searching for answers after their 85-82 loss to the Las Vegas Aces on Thursday night at the Talking Stick Resort Arena. The loss dropped Phoenix to 15-9, still the second-best record in the WNBA behind the Seattle Storm (18-6).


    The Mercury next shift their focus to the defending champion Minnesota Lynx, who are trying to battle back from a recent skid of their own after losing three of four games.


    But the once-dominant Mercury, who won four straight games before their recent woes, are closer in the loss column to No. 8 (and final playoff spot) Connecticut (12-11) than they are to the Storm. Las Vegas is the No. 9 team with an 11-13 record.


    "The biggest thing for us is that we're not ready to play," said Phoenix coach Sandy Bordello, whose team failed to beat the Las Vegas franchise, previously the San Antonio Stars, for the first time in 10 games. "We're not bringing the focus, the intent, or the energy to compete against anyone in the WBNA.


    "We didn't bring our energy at the start of the game, and then we had to exert so much energy to get back into the game. We lost that game because of unforced turnovers leading to easy layups. No one is feeling sorry for us, and we need to make sure we are bringing it every single game."


    The Aces' defense turned 16 Mercury turnovers into 25 points, 14 of which were in transition.


    All-Stars Diana Taurasi (season-high 33 points with six assists and five rebounds) and Brittney Griner (sixth double-double of the season with 19 points and 10 rebounds) played well, but the Mercury lacked balance and consistency against the Aces. Taurasi and Griner combined to make only 15 of 38 shots from the field.


    Meanwhile, the Lynx (13-10) started to get on the right track in their last game Wednesday in an 89-65 rout of the visiting Indiana Fever.


    Post player Sylvia Fowles posted her third 30-plus point game as a member of the Lynx with a season-high 30 points on 13-of-15 shooting. She also grabbed 16 boards, notching her league-best 14th double-double of the season and 141st of her career.


    "That's the beauty of our team -- it's a good thing that we've got a lot of veterans where you can go back and watch film and have conversations with each other and just think about how we can help in different aspects," Fowles said of the win after the recent bad stretch.


    "We know that our last game (an 83-64 loss at home to Connecticut last Sunday) wasn't our best, but we're pushing forward. I'm happy that we've got games that come quick, so we can get it over with."


    This will be the third and last meeting of the teams this season. Phoenix and Minnesota split the previous two games, each winning on the road. The Lynx beat the Mercury 83-72 in the last meeting on June 22 at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.

    Delle Donne, Mystics rout Liberty, 95-78
    July 21, 2018



    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) When Elena Delle Donne gets going early, it makes the Washington Mystics' offense flow so much better.


    The All-Star captain had 15 of her 30 points in the opening period to help Washington beat the New York Liberty 95-78 on Saturday.


    ''It definitely helps the spread the floor better when I'm hitting shots,'' said Delle Donne, who also had 10 rebounds.


    She hit all six of her shots in the opening period, including three 3-pointers - most of them just swishing through the net.


    The Mystics won for only the second time in their past six games and sit in a three-way tie for fourth in the league.


    ''Every game matter so much,'' Delle Donne said. ''It's going to be a sprint to the finish.''


    Washington (14-10) led by eight at the half, and Delle Donne and Kristi Toliver combined for 20 points of the team's 32 points in the third quarter to extend the advantage to 75-53. Toliver finished with 19 points and eight assists.


    New York (7-17) tried to get back in the game behind rookie Kia Nurse, who had eight straight points during one stretch to get the Liberty within 11. But that's as close as they could come.


    ''Excellent effort in the fourth quarter by all who came in,'' Liberty coach Katie Smith said. ''. Maybe we can bottle that up and get four quarters of that.''


    New York is all but assured of missing the playoffs this season after making the postseason the past three years.


    ''It's going to be rough to try to get in,'' Smith said. ''But I think for us, it's going out every night and being proud of what we did that night and proud of how we played, proud of our effort. It's tough to win in this league anyways.''


    Tina Charles scored 22 points, including her 3,000th in New York. Sugar Rodgers added 16 for the Liberty.


    SWATTING AWAY THE RECORD BOOK:


    Kiah Stokes tied the franchise record for career blocks, equaling the mark of 155 set by Sue Wicks of 155.


    TRAINING ROOM:


    Mystics: Natasha Cloud is still out with a concussion. Coach Mike Thibault hopes to have her back soon.


    Liberty: Epiphanny Prince (left eye) and Shavonte Zellous (right ankle) missed the game because of injuries they suffered in a loss to Atlanta.


    [B]UP NEXT:


    Mystics: Visit Connecticut on Tuesday in their last game before the All-Star break.


    Liberty: Visit Minnesota on Tuesday in their last game before the All-Star break.

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


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


    13) Damn, there was some serious drama in my neighborhood Saturday.


    I live on a quiet suburban street just outside Albany; went out to meet my cousin for dinner at 7:00 last night and Central Avenue, the main street in town, was totally barracaded off west of my street by the local police. That never happens here.


    Turns out a Cadillac was speeding in the eastbound lanes towards Albany and the police gave chase— finally the Cadillac smashed into one of the police cars. The Cadillac was disabled on the side of the road, missing a tire. Everyone was OK- they shut down the road to do the CSI-type re-creation of the scene, for the investigation of whatever other crime there was.


    12) So a word of thanks to the Colonie Police for protecting us and keeping our town safe.


    11) Bad news for the Mets: Yoenis Cespedes says the cause of his medical issues is calcification in both heels. He says the only way to fix the issue is surgery; the recovery time is apparently 8-10 months. Might as well get it done now, right?


    Eight months from today is March 21, just before Opening Day for 2019.


    10) This from an outstanding article written by West Virginia alum/Memphis Grizzlies’ rookie Jevon Carter, talking about practices under his college coach, Bob Huggins:


    “And the treadmill was our punishment if we made a mistake in practice. If your guy was able to dribble to the middle of the court while you were guarding him, you had to get off the court and get on the treadmill and run 18 mph for 45 seconds. Right on the side of the court. Allow an offensive rebound … you’re on the treadmill. Let your guy drive past you. Treadmill. Turn the ball over. Allow an uncontested layup, miss a box out, lag getting back on D … you’re running.”


    9) Red Sox are 28-8 vs Tampa Bay, Toronto, Baltimore this season; New York is 19-13 vs those teams, and that is why the Red Sox are leading the AL East.


    8) Colorado CF Charlie Blackmon was miked during the All-Star Game; he was explaining how at Coors Field in the high altitude, balls don’t slice away/towards outfielders as much as they do in other ballparks. Interesting knowledge.


    7) Rutgers’ football team has its 9th offensive coordinator in nine season this year.


    Utah has had eight OC’s in ten years, but at least this year they have the same OC they had this year, so maybe a little continuity for once will help the Utes.


    6) Red Sox have had 73 games started by lefty pitchers this season, most in the big leagues.


    5) Baseball doings:
    — Rockies’ 2B DJ LeMahieu strained his oblique.
    — Cardinals’ P Carlos Martinez strained his oblique.


    4) Carmelo Anthony took 463 jump shots last year that were outside the paint and inside the 3-point arc, otherwise known as mid-range shots. Analytics people hate mid-range jumpers.


    The entire Houston Rockets team took 562 mid-range jumpers last year, so if Anthony signs with the Rockets, his shot selection will be interesting to track.


    3) In the CFL, coaches can challenge pass interference calls via replay, which is interesting. Not sure if I like that or not, but its something different.


    2) Washington Wizards will finally have their own G-League affiliate this winter, making 27 NBA teams with their own G-League team. Only three teams that don’t have one: Pelicans, Trailblazers and the Nuggets.


    1) Cardinals’ IF Matt Carpenter has now homered in six consecutive games; he didn’t start in Game 2 of Saturday’s doubleheader, but pinch-hit in the 7th inning and homered. MLB record is eight straight games with a home run.

    Sunday's WNBA Best Bets
    July 21, 2018



    For the remainder of the WNBA regular season through the playoffs, we'll take a look at the best Sunday bets.


    As an added bonus, here is a preview of Saturday's 10:00 p.m. ET matchup between the Minnesota Lynx (13-10) and Phoenix Mercury (15-9), too.

    The Merc are favored by 2 1/2 at most shops, and rightly so. They're 13-6 ATS in their past 19 outings, and 7-3 ATS across the past 10 when working on one day of rest. In addition, Phoenix has posted a 4-1 ATS mark in their past five against teams with an overall winning record. Minnesota has posted a 1-4 ATS mark in their past five after a straight-up win, and they're 0-4 ATS in their past four following a cover. The Lynx have still been good against the number overall, going 4-1 ATS in their past five road games and 5-1 ATS in their past six against the Western Conference. Minnesota has dominated this series of late, at least against the number, going 6-0 ATS in their past six visits to the Valley of the Sun, and 12-3-1 ATS in the past 16 meetings overall. Total bettors will like to know that the 'under' is 21-10-1 ATS in the past 32 meetings in this series, including 7-1-1 in the past nine in Arizona.


    Sunday's Games


    The Seattle Storm (18-6) make the cross-country trek to meet the Atlanta Dream (14-9) at 3:00 p.m. ET. Both of these teams have been red-hot against the spread, so something's gotta give. Seattle has a perfect 4-0 ATS mark in their past four games away from home, while going 7-1-1 ATS in their past nine games overall. They're also an impressive 5-0-1 ATS in the past six games against Eastern Conference foes, while posting a solid 4-1-1 ATS mark in the past six against teams with an overall winning record. For the Dream, they're 4-0 ATS in the past four home outings, while covering six straight overall. Atlanta has stepped up against the upper-echelon clubs, too, going 10-1 ATS in the past 11 against teams with a winning straight-up record and 4-1 ATS in the past five against the Western Conference.


    For those interested in the total, the 'over' has connected in seven of the past 10 away from home for Seattle, but the 'under' is 4-1 in their past five while working on just one day of rest. For Atlanta, the over is 5-2 in their past seven against those with a winning overall mark, but the under is a gaudy 10-2 in the past 12 home games. The over has cashed in four straight meetings between these interconference rivals in Atlanta, while hitting in six of the past seven meetings overall. As far as the spread is concerned, the Storm are 2-8 ATS in their past 10 trips to Atlanta and 1-5 ATS in the past six meetings overall in this series.


    In another East vs. West matchup, the spiraling Connecticut Sun (12-12) hook up with the Dallas Wings (14-10) in the Metroplex. It has been a tough road to hoe for Connecticut lately, as they're just 3-9 ATS in the past 12 games away from home, while going a dismal 1-6 ATS in the past seven games overall. They have also managed to cover just once in the past five against Western Conference teams, while posting a 2-9 ATS mark in the past 11 against sides with a winning overall record. For the Wings, they're the complete opposite, going 7-2 ATS in the past nine overall, and 5-1 ATS in the past six against the East. Dallas has also covered five in a row at home, while going an impressive 10-1 ATS in the past 11 following a straight-up loss. The trends for the total are all over the board, with the under dominating for Connecticut, and the over dominated for Dallas. In this series, the over is 3-0-1 in the past four meetings, but the under is 5-2 in the past seven meetings in Texas. It's probably best to avoid the total in this one.


    *** BEST BET ALERT: The Wings are a strong play laying the four points on their home floor. Elizabeth Cambage dumped in 35 points and 17 boards against the Mystics last time out, setting a two-game WNBA record with 88 points, breaking the old two-game record of 80 set by Minnesota's Maya Moore in 2014. Cambage also is the first player to post back-to-back 30-plus point games with at least 10 rebounds in each outing since Moore. Soar on Cambage's wings to a cover.


    We'll keep a running total of the BEST BETS for the remainder of the season.


    It's like Rocky IV up in here. East meets West again in Las Vegas, but it's not Drago vs. Apollo Creed. Instead, it's the Indiana Fever (3-21) and Las Vegas Aces (11-13) who are Living in America. The Fever looked like Apollo Creed against Drago's deafening, precision and steroid-induced blows for most of the season, taking it on the chin. THROW THE TOWEL! But the Fever haven't thrown in the towel, and instead they might come into this one with a little confidence instead. They toppled the Los Angeles Sparks (14-10) by a 78-76 score as 13 1/2-point underdogs, covering and winning for the first time in five outings since stunning the Lynx back on July 3. It's the second time the Fever have won straight-up as a double-digit underdog.


    The Aces have been huge against the Eastern Conference dating back to the franchise's days in San Antonio, covering 30 of the past 42 against the East, while going 7-3 ATS in the past 10 against teams with a losing overall record. They have covered four of the past five overall. In this series, the Fever are 0-6 ATS in the past six overall, while the 'under' is 5-1 in the past six meetings in Vegas, while going 4-1 in the past five meetings overall.


    *** BEST BET ALERT - PART DEUX: The Aces will win this game by double digits, as the Fever are 3-21 overall for a reason, including 2-10 SU on the road. Lay the 8 1/2 points, sit back, relax and enjoy the Aces.


    In the final game of the day, the Sparks host the Chicago Sky (8-16). The Sparks are in desperate need of a confidence builder after dropping their last game against the lowly Fever. L.A. has been very un-L.A.-like this season, winning just three of their past 10 games overall. After starting the season 8-2-1 ATS in the first 11 outings, the Sparks are a poor 4-9 ATS across the past 13. These teams have met twice already this season, with L.A. going 2-0 SU/ATS. They won at home against the Sky on June 10 by a 77-59 score as 14-point favorites, and in Chitown by an 81-72 margin to narrowly covering an 8 1/2-point number. The 'under' also connected in each of the outings.


    The Sparks are still 13-3 ATS in the past 16 against losing teams, and 17-7 ATS in the past 24 against Eastern Conference clubs. They're also 16-7 ATS iin the past 23 following a straight-up loss, and 11-5 ATS in the past 16 following a non-cover. Chicago is a poor 10-21 ATS in their past 31 at home, 1-4 ATS in their past five overall and 5-15 ATS in the past 20 games against a team with a straight-up winning record. And, for what it's worth, L.A. is 8-0 ATS in their past eight on Sundays, while Chicago is 3-12 ATS in their past 15 on Sundays. The Sparks are also 7-1 ATS in their past eight forays into the Windy City, and 11-3 ATS in the past 14 meetings overall. The game is currently OFF the board, but look for the Sparks to be favored by at least three buckets, if not more. They'll have success if they can cool off Courtney Vandersloot, who became the seventh woman in WNBA history to post a triple-double last time out against the Wings on Friday.
