Smith: Lynx need Whalen back on track

Coach Cheryl Reeve shouldered some blame for Lindsay Whalen's lack of offensive productivity in these playoffs, noting that the addition of Sylvia Fowles has boosted emphasis on scoring inside.


Who's the best women's player ever?

It's top-seeded Diana Taurasi vs. Sheryl Swoopes and No. 2 seed Lisa Leslie vs. Sue Bird in the final four of our best baller bracket. Can Sue Bird pull another upset to advance to the final matchup?

Sylvia Fowles said what she wanted most for birthday was Game 2 win. So far, she's playing like that: 5 of 6 from field, 10 points.

Fair to say that so far, Lynx really aren't getting shots they want. Very active and prepared Fever defense.

BTW, the scratch on Briann January's face is from a tangle with Rebekkah Brunson in Game 1. January said, "And I got called for the foul!"

Sylvia Fowles told me that she got a couple of birthday presents in mail yesterday, but had not opened them yet. Disciplined celebrator! :)
