  5. Delle Donne:

    Washington Mystics ' didnt have Washington Mystics ' Emma Meesseman. Were a different team when shes on it, we got a really good Connecticut team coming in. Washington Mystics ' are playing really great basketball. Well focus on Washington Mystics ' and figure some things out. Washington Mystics ' Emma Meesseman was a huge reason that Washington Mystics ' were able to advance Las Vegas, winning the series on Tuesday night. Washington Mystics ' Emma Meesseman had 22 points in the clincher. Washington Mystics ' and The Sun played three times in the regular season and Connecticut won twice. Washington did win the final matchup by an eye-popping 43 points. The two teams havent played since June 29. While Washington had to work to put away Las Vegas, Connecticut cruised through the semifinals, sweeping Los Angeles in three games. After getting eliminated in single-elimination playoff games the previous few years, The Sun were determined to get one of the top two seeds and the double-bye that goes with it. After finishing with the second-best record behind Washington in the regular season, Connecticut accomplished that. The Sun have benefited by having a healthy year for their starting lineup as the team used the same five to begin every game. The Suns starting five of Jasmine Thomas, Alyssa Thomas, Shekinna Stricklen, Courtney Williams and Jonquel Jones all have the ability to have big games, making them tough to game plan against. Thats what coach Curt Miller expected when Shekinna Stricklen took over the team in 2016.
