Jonquel Jones, deemed the ‘Bahamian Beast’, after dropping 32 points and pulling down 18 boards! The Mystics hung around but were unable to snatch game 2 without their star. Elena Delle Donne exited the game with back spasms in the first quarter and is scheduled for a MRI.
Earlier this season on the ‘Soaring Wings Show’ I mentioned that if EDD stays healthy the championship is the Mystics to lose, but if she is unable to play defeating the Sun will be a tall task for the Mystics. Luckily, there are four days in between games, and maybe she will be able to go.
Either way I am wishing her the best. I have enjoyed this finals so far. With it being tied 1-1 is about to be very interesting. Even if EDD cannot go for Game 3 on Sunday, it will give Washington time to game plan and adjust. There wasn’t enough time last night and no answer for Jones.
The Sun are basically doing this with their starting five and it is going to take a total team effort from the Mystics in order to defeat them especially without the MVP. Shoutout to Alyssa Thomas who has played every minute of these finals 🔥.
I cannot wait to see how it all plays out.
How are you feeling about these finals? Who are you pulling for? For me, my two favorite Dallas Wings players are in the finals so I’d be happy with either team winning. A ring for Powers or Plaisance will make me happy. Let me hear your thoughts @WNBALove on the Twitter.
