Chicago's fourth quarter comeback made history

+

Chicago trailed in Atlanta tonight by 16 points at the end of the third quarter (67-51) but outscored the Dream 30-13 in the fourth quarter to win, 81-80. This was the first time since the league switched from "two halves" to "four quarters" that a team won a playoff game after trailing by at least sixteen points at the end of the third quarter. The 2006 season marked the first year of four-quarter games.

From a Chicago Sky release. For more on the series, check out our Dream vs. Sky storystream.

Make no mistake about who the MVP for the Minnesota Lynx was in the first round of the 2014 WNBA Playoffs: Lindsay Whalen's playoff career-high 31 points led the Lynx to a 94-89 win over the San Antonio Stars in Game 2 of the first round and back to the Western Conference Finals. Her previous best playoff scoring performance was in 2005. And, of course, in Game 1 she did this. Case closed.

The real lesson of the Mo'Ne Davis story

+

So while it’s great that a 13-year-old girl was treated as an accomplished athlete, I’d be more grateful if Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi, two of the greatest basketball players on earth, didn’t have to spend the winter in Russia just to make a decent living. "If only we had a Davis every single day in the media for girls," King says.

Davis’s real future, once the androgens kick in, will probably consist of a long fight for funding, audience and decent pay, if she is lucky enough to win a scholarship to play college basketball and get to the WNBA.

From "Mo’ne Davis is out of Little League World Series, and women’s sports are shoved from spotlight" by Sally Jenkins of the Washington Post.
