    After getting blown out by the Liberty in game 1 and almost blowing a lead in the game 2, the Shock trail most of game 3 before pulling ahead by five in the last 2.5 minutes on a 3 ball by Katie Smith (who had missed her previous 6 shots). Then they blow a five point lead an allow the NY to tie the game and send it in to OT.

    After falling behing by five in OT they go in a 7-0 run and then hold on to win by 1.

    katie Smith almost shot them out of the game, but did hit a couple of 3 balls in crunch time and OT. Nolan led the comeback in the 4th. Cheryl Ford who missed the last 10 games of the season and was thought to be out for the season came back to help them win by being the only Shock player to show up in the first half. Can this be the first BB team in Mihicgan to repeat since the Bad boyz in 1990???

    With all this talent on the team, they must have called on Flip Laimbeer to coach this series.............:)

    Wish I could have watched that game. I only saw game 1 and it wasn't looking good for them.

    I have to say though, that the level of play in the WNBA playoffs is really great so far. They are athletic enough that it almost seems like watching a good NCAA men's game. And there really are some spectacular plays.

    Hey, at least Laimbeer understands the word "toughness." Flip thinks "toughness" means when his steak is difficult to cut.

    That being said, Indiana is gonna be tough in Round 2.

    WNBA basketball is much more physical than NBA basketball. Outrageously and splendidly so.

    Re: Shock Survive first round upset

    This has Piston flavor all over it.

    First the Shock finish with the best record in the league
    Then Flip Laimbeer rests the starters in the last five games after they clinch
    Then they come out rusty, cocky and overconfident in game 1 and have to hold on to win games 2 and 3.

    We can only speculate that in round two if Tamika (La bron) catchings leads the Indiana (Cavs) Fever to an upset of the defending champs.

    Hopefully Katie Smith gets under control and Cheryl Ford can keep her knee healthy for another chance to contend in the finals.

    Re: Shock Survive first round upset

    Is it possible for me to be a WNBA groupie that hangs outside the lockeroom, but it'd probably be my luck that I end up in a compromising position with one of the goon looking ladies as oppossed to Swin Cash.

    I am not sure about the playoff format, but if Shock had the best record, why the news say they open on the road?

    If Beer is still coaching them, I noticed some help D on the block but the Ref called foul. Looked like good clean Det. Dee to me.

    Yeah so the better team will always clinch a series win or championship at home...so far both Shock Championships have been at the Palace so old man Davidson didn't have to hop on a plane to celebrate getting those rings.

    Re: Shock Survive first round upset

    Shock are one of the more attractive teams in the league but thats not why Lamb signed them. Its come a long way from the 1950's when they wore tennis skirts and were not allowed to run or break a sweat as it was considered too un-ladylike.

    I have not seen them yet in the playoffs. Usually like to catch a game or 2 and they looked better than last season.

    Calling some of them goons is a little rough. In one game I caught I was courtside and there was a 7' lady from Poland on the other team. Some fans were calling her goon, monster, tree, ... It was sad because she probably was a very nice lady.

    Re: Shock Survive first round upset

    That player is Margo Dydek of the Connecticut Sun. She is 7'2". Not much coordination so she's not really a low post threat. She bothers some shots but she's kinda soft actually.

    That's the face she gave the ref. He quit calling fouls on her after that.:]
