The Indiana Fever needed a win tonight to clinch the WNBA Eastern Conference division, which they managed to do handily. They outshot, out-blocked, outran, and outplayed the Mystics in their pursuit of the playoffs for the 2nd time in 3 years.
One of the best matchups I saw was between our own Erin Phillips and #2 Kelly Miller. The two of them tangled and tousled several times during the game, including the time Miller gave Phillips a full-on "you-want-a-piece-of-this?!" shove during play. At other times, 5'0" Shannon Bobbit took on Miller, and wouldn't back down either. Miller is 5'10" and a 10-year veteran (Bobbit is in her 2nd year). Miller had the reach and the experience, but Bobbit and Phillips wouldn't back down.
Phillips has some great tenacity, taking over for our last Aussie scrapper, Tully Bevilaqua. Erin P plays her heart out game after game, playing so hard that she even got injured during the final minutes of tonight's game, hurting her left ankle. (A few photos of the spill are below.)
We have tickets to one last game against the Atlanta Dream on Sunday afternoon, September 11th.
