WNBA resumes play for the 2nd half of the season

July 25, 2011 10:52am

After a back and forth game where neither team led by more than 5 points, the East defeated the West 118-113 in the 2011 WNBA All-Star game. After last season’s format pitting the USA National Team against the WNBA All-Stars (or the best players that weren’t already on the national side), the league returned to the traditional conference vs conference match-up. This game definitely showcased the amount of talent this league has to offer.

All but two teams return to action on Tuesday, with 5 games scheduled as the league begins the 2nd half of the season.

San Antonio at Washington: The Silver Stars will look to get back their shooting form displayed in the early part of the season, while the Mystics look to fight out from the bottom of the Eastern conference.  Washington has played better since Langhorne has been back healthy, but will have to contend with the deep Silver Stars bench to get this much needed home win.

Connecticut at Chicago: Two of the best young post players meet again in Charles and Fowles. The Sun look to turn their fortunes around on the road, while the Sky too have enjoyed better success in their home arena.

Los Angeles at Minnesota: The Sparks hope to turn it around on the road after two straight losses at home. The problem is they have to travel to Minnesota who beat them by 17 earlier this season, and that was with Parker in the lineup.

Atlanta at Tulsa: The Dream are hoping to find last year’s form, while the Shock are looking for anything but the form they have shown since last season. We could see some familiar faces back in their respective starting lineups if Sancho Lyttle and Ivory Latta return for this game.

Seattle at Phoenix: How much things have changed in the short season as these two teams met in Seattle to start the season. The Storm had Lauren Jackson then, while the Mercury were still looking for an offense of all things. Fast forward to tomorrow, where the Storm hope to slow down the leagues best offense without LJ, and turn around their road woes all in one trip.
