2.jpg Who did the National Anthem tonight? Us! And we totally rocked! We should have us sing it more often.

30.jpg Here's the hard, borderline flagrant foul...
Click to see 31.jpg
31.jpg ...I don't think Taurasi is really going for the ball here...
Click to see 32.jpg
32.jpg ...so she ends up wacking both of Izzy's arms. Ever wonder how Taurasi gets those enormous bruises on the bottoms of her arms?

33.jpg The freethrow gets stuck and that's an automatic jumpball no matter how it happens.

52.jpg Yikes, LJ totally clobbered Snell.
Click to see 53.jpg
53.jpg After the call, LJ turned around, walked towards us away from the ref and said something that surely would have been a technical foul.

57.jpg One great thing about Westhead is that he clearly enjoys talking to players about what's going on during the game.
Click to see 58.jpg
58.jpg And who else likes to talk? LJ and Taurasi...
Click to see 59.jpg
59.jpg ...they were clearly exchanging some funny remarks to each other here.

71.jpg Looks like Taurasi is getting back into her bad habit of standing out on the court when the rules say she should be behind the sideline.

Click to see 97.jpg
97.jpg Westhead seemed to have started a discussion about the general lessons of this game...
Click to see 98.jpg
98.jpg ...he asked a question, and several seconds went by before someone spoke up. Interesting.
