One thing I’ve noticed about Charles is that she often goes looking for the hero pass into Fowler and overlooks ATN. Its not costing them in this game but often does and I wonder what it does for someone’s confidence to continually play decoy and then have people say she should be putting up more shots.JbssParticipantAugust 30, 2020 at 4:59 pmPost count: 231
Lightning showing dangers of having almost too strong a starting 7 so the change up options if it doesn’t work aren’t fantastic. The condensed season and even potentially Woods injury are exacerbating this issue.Ian HarkinModeratorAugust 30, 2020 at 5:00 pmPost count: 17170
3/4 time: Fever 63-36

Stanton 0/0 (0%)

What a total thrashing this is. Did anyone see this coming? Looks like some records will be broken today if the Fever keep their stars on court.Ian HarkinModeratorAugust 30, 2020 at 5:08 pmPost count: 17170
Fowler gets a rest! She sits down with 57/59 after a totally dominant performance for 50 minutes.JbssParticipantAugust 30, 2020 at 5:11 pmPost count: 231
Seriously what is the go in this game? Every Lightning player decided to have an off day on the same day. Conversely every Fever player including the bench(some who are out of position) decided to have a great day.Ian HarkinModeratorAugust 30, 2020 at 5:15 pmPost count: 17170
Charles has been everywhere today. Brilliant performance.JbssParticipantAugust 30, 2020 at 5:20 pmPost count: 231
Minute of silence for Tbirds who have to play Lightning on Wednesday, they’ll be looking to bounce back big. Fever will look to consolidate this win with another strong performance and it will be interesting to see what strategies teams employ next week to try and slow the roll of an attack end that has decided to click.Ian HarkinModeratorAugust 30, 2020 at 5:26 pmPost count: 17170

I wonder if the condensed SSN season, is taking it’s toll on the older players in the SC team.
They looked slow, tired and flat. Fever played well, but not 26 goals betterPickemParticipantAugust 30, 2020 at 5:52 pmPost count: 34
As I’ve said elsewhere, thought the Lightning had squeezed the lemon dry with this squad at the end of last season and needed to re-tool.. they just don’t have the class they used to in a couple of key areas and like others have pointed out, depth is being exposed in this condensed formatTACTIXSUPPORTERParticipantAugust 30, 2020 at 6:27 pmPost count: 455
Wow what a thrashing.
But 2 games a week must be really hard on players with previous injuries.
Wood isn’t the same this season
Madi Browne and Kelsey Browne both gone down with knee soreness
Bruce only just finding form now.mcleodParticipantAugust 30, 2020 at 6:49 pmPost count: 1508
I would have like to see games reduced by 12 min like the ANZ.
2 x 60min games a week is surely very tiring on the body and mind.
And soon 3 teams will fly to Adelaide, play and then fly back to Brisbane and play again soon afterJRParticipantAugust 30, 2020 at 6:52 pmPost count: 1562
yes, I agree about 12 minute quarters like the ANZP. And NO minutes Super Shot time…Jane EdwardsParticipantAugust 30, 2020 at 7:05 pmPost count: 9

Don’t worry, ATN arrived at Fever well-trained in that art by the Magpies!

It was great to see ATN show how good she can be – brilliant playmaking and constant cuts/drives to keep Pretorius busy and away from Fowler. Must have been very close to MVP (although Charles also played a blinder)
