19.jpg Seimone shot 92% the previous night against the Sparks. Like I said last year, she can shoot anytime and anywhere. But not tonight (only 30%!).

26.jpg Uh oh, look out folks. This was the bloody collision between LJ's chin and Svetlana's forehead...
Click to see 27.jpg
27.jpg ...Svetlana moves away from LJ to try a reverse layup. LJ moves to tower over her...
Click to see 28.jpg
28.jpg ...Svetlana goes up and WHAMMO.
Click to see 29.jpg
29.jpg LJ is down but seems to be OK, even smiling at one point.

30.jpg I like how the trainers make you check your teeth with your tongue.

31.jpg Svetlana's face loses the battle and is gushing blood all over the place.
Click to see 32.jpg
32.jpg But she does clean up nicely.
Click to see 33.jpg
33.jpg Lynx fast break...
Click to see 34.jpg
34.jpg ...what I like here is that Sue is ignoring the shooter and already moving to get the rebound.
Click to see 35.jpg
35.jpg Finally a great Seimone three pointer...
Click to see 36.jpg
36.jpg ...and the Lynx bench thinks they're finally in business.

45.jpg Keep those fouls coming, Nicole. Ohlde normally plays great defense against LJ.
Click to see 46.jpg
46.jpg I don't get Katie's defense. Here rookie Kathrin Ress puts a simple spin move on her...
Click to see 47.jpg
47.jpg ...but Katie just stands there like she vanisthed into thin air with no screen anywhere. Did she think someone else would switch for her?

63.jpg Svetlana catches the long pass, but instead of driving to the basket...
Click to see 64.jpg
64.jpg ...she gives the most convincing no-look pass I've seen in a while. She's looking right at the basket.

74.jpg LJ gives her classic reverse layup...
Click to see 75.jpg
75.jpg ...she's not even looking at the basket. That shouldn't be possible.
Click to see 76.jpg
76.jpg And what's the deal with the sodium vapor lights? Don't my shots already have enough bad colors?
