    Re: The most important eight minutes of a WNBA game

    Not enough handicappers/gamblers focus on the final two minutes of the game when the natural outcome and pointspread outcome are often decided.

    Which happens more often: The natural outcome is decided in the final two minutes OR the pointspread outcome is decided in the final two minutes?

      Other random notes:

      I focus on who starts the game and more importantly who finishes the game.

      Indiana head coach Pokey Chatman has been awful in several end-game situations.

      The Chicago Sky is better than their record (or scores) indicates.

      And here's one of my favorite angles: During a timeout, I love when players are talking to one another before the coach enters the huddle. Smart coaches should stay quiet when players are communicating with one another.

          Okay.

          So I'll assume you're not interested in Wednesday night's game between Las Vegas and New York where Bill Laimbeer, the teacher, will meet Katie Smith, his student.

          Interesting to note: Katie's team loves to shoot the three-ball (nearly 24 attempts per game) while Bill's team prefers to work the ball inside (only 10 attempts from beyond the arc per game).

                  What he lacked in skills, he made up by being a punk-ass bitch on the court. Thankfully the NBA cleaned up that part of the game.

                    He didnt lack skills, he led the nba in rebounding and was a deadly 3 pt shooter. Nba is now a sewer because of fans like FairWarning

                          Nice job by Mystic last two keeping Sun from biggest comeback in WNBA history. If there is a better player than a healthy Delle Donne in the league I haven't seen her....

                            Laimbeer and his "Deadly" 32% from behind the arc, had a career total of 121 technical fouls and 202 three point made shots

                              I was a big Laimbeer fan
                              I’m quite sure he was under rated and an over achiever with a great shot
                              What Laimbeer did and he did it masterfully
                              Was to psych out his opponents
                              Not with intimidation like so many others
                              But with distraction
                              So many players would get distracted and lose control and not play well because of Bill's antics
                              Psyching out through distraction can be devastating
                              And Laimbeer is proof
                              His teammate Rodman was great at distracting too.
