Connecticut Sun coach Mike Thibault expects a physical Game Two vs Indiana Fever

The Indiana Fever are obviously known for their defensive prowess, which tends to slow games down to among the fewest possessions per game in the league by denying opponents fast break opportunities and points off turnovers.

With the Fever on the brink of elimination in Game Two of the 2012 WNBA Eastern Conference Finals, we should probably expect them to ramp up the defensive intensity. And with that, Connecticut Sun coach Mike Thibault is expecting a physical game, as reported by Mike DiMauro of The Day.

"The history of Indiana has been to come out, foul on every possession and see what they can get away with," Sun coach Mike Thibault said Sunday after practice at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. "Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. I expect that (tonight) from them from the start. I'm sure we're going to get fouled on almost every play."

Best of luck to tonight's refs.
