Well the Flames took SEQ all the way to OT, but looks like 40 minutes was all they had in them. Still a tremendous effort, minus Tupaea and also a head coach from what I hear. I've got a lot of time for what they're doing in Sydney.
Over here, the Lynx played like garbage. Not actually sure how it was still a close game down the stretch - we didn't deserve it to be. I guess Bendigo going 3/19 from outside is largely to thank. The attack mode we had last game was lacking. Lavey & Laney can hold their heads high, the rest not so much.
Entertaining meltdown by coach Pritchard anyway :p
Richards & Griffin were good without dominating us (Lynx actually won the battle of the boards), but for mine it was Kelly Wilson that was the difference. Quality all-round game for the full 40 minutes.
Back to the drawing board for Perth. Sami drew a lot of attention and we failed to capitalise elsewhere.
So my longshot on the Flames fell just short, but I still came out ahead thanks to the Spirit.
