The Charlotte Sting refused to lie down, and played the CT Sun tight all the way to the end. The score was ties with about a minute to play. It was a nail biter. The production crew (normally kind of chill about it all) was pounding the tables in back and screaming DE-FENSE.
Props to Charlotte for hanging tough, playing with pride. They hustled the whole time, dogged the Sun guards. Nykesha was not up to par, her hip must still be hurting, or she's just not quite back yet (although she did finally score!), but the rest of the Sun took up the slack. Lindsay looked great, Taj and KT were right there, Margo even put the ball onto the floor a few times (once in the back-court, and the gasp was audible). Ashja was quiet. The officiating seemed to be pretty bad.
Gonna need a lot more on Saturday against Phoenix and Diana Taurasi.... (although maybe we should just chain someone to Cappie Pondexter, who scored 35 against Detroit last night)
