Yep the streamed games are free to watch, and they're not geo-blocked either. Handy also that they're always found at the same place:

Haha very true. Dandy are the OGs of the WNBL streaming game. Love their work and look forward to the Rangers-Lynx game. Should be an entertaining, up-tempo affair.

Alexander was set to miss the first few weeks. They should be a contender if she gets up and going and was a teammate of Nia Coffey at San Antonio in 2017.

Not really that unexpected. Melbourne looked good last week once they got rolling. Stacked roster so it was only a matter of time.

61-34 first half and then we very nearly choked it away.

AshT, more an open question but on the subject of WNBA, how many players in our league right now have WNBA experience?

Reply #711286 | Report this post

WNBA experience - I just counted twenty (more than I thought). Then there'd be another eight, that I can spot, that are drafted or had preseasons but didn't make roster.

Anyone here want to convince me that streaming WNBL/SEABL games with paltry viewing audience is worth the effort?

Any point streaming a game for 50 people to watch?

Sydney Flames have to let AJ go, she's clearly not up to the WNBL standard, Wilson looked really good in PG position today. Flames needed more than Smart & Wilson to get the sneaky W in the Ville! Fire would be disappointed with the lack of production they’re getting from Madgen & Garbin at present.

LOL. Should not have posted that!

Lucky for Rangers that game was not live streamed. They were terrible in that second half capitulation.

Credit to the Lynx, they out hustled and outplayed the Rangers.

Brittany McPhee was brilliant, as was Asia Taylor as expected. But Bec Cole played a shocker, after a promising start, Carley Mijovic went missing, Tessa Lavey was unable to make a shot and Pederson was outdone.

The Lynx guards shut down the Rangers back court and it was all over.

Wow when Perth are hot they can sure score. Impressed with their rebounding too, you can have plenty of opportunities to chuck it up if you keep getting the ball.

Shame about Bendigo, but looking back their first two weeks their shooting percentage looked unsustainable. Hopin they're able to still get a win here or there.

All the opals guards have been crap.
Mitchell, Mansfield, ebzery, Madgen and Lavey.

When's walllace back?

Yeah Mansfield has been super crap this season in the 23 minutes she has played since recovering from the injury. Only 6 assists in that time. Terrible.

Bad game for Sami last night in her team's first loss but shot lights out the match before.

Agree with Luuc re Mansfield. She's not even on proper minutes yet, far too early to write her off. Ebzery probably been mre disappointing but then she doesn't have to be a huge shooter herself, just keep facilitating.

Bunton the best of the returning Opals? Maybe the lack of Opal'scampaign and being able to focus on her own fitness is what has helped Griffen start so well.

Mitchell, Mansfield, clydesdale amd tupaea are all comming back from injury so hard to write them all off yet.

Ebzery has had a horrid start to the season and hasn't had a good game yet.

Lavey has had two good games and two poor games, today being her worst yet.

Madgen isnt a point guard.

I dont know why the two current best point guards arnt in the opals conversation, willson & hurst are a class above on current form.

Will be interesting to see who gets selected for the next camp.

Going to say that Taylor/Coffey/Batkovic are locked into TOTW and the POTW will come from there, maybe Taylor because she did it across two games.

The guard spots are less predictable, maybe Allen again because she was good in the Boomers win. Also have Nurse/McPhee/Smart who had good games this round so can slot them in. Quite apparent that it's the imports driving the league this year.

That's right, the Lynx still have Heal to come into that already impressive back-court (on paper at least).

Ebzery (Opals)
Mansfield (Opals)
McPhee (Import)
Heal (Sapphires)

... along with two very good veterans in Farnworth and Schwagmeyer who can both play at SG.

If the Lynx guards can find the form that made them Opals, is there a better guard rotation in the league?

On paper so would I, but in new Lynx era we have done a great job of getting the most out of our players regardless of prior reputation. Credit to Andy Stewart for that. Pre-season I was thinking 7th for this team, which still might turn out to be the case but at least I can count on effort and entertainment value from this team. We had no business winning by 25 in Dandenong yesterday.

Re. Heal the original word was 6-10 weeks I think, and I haven't heard anything since. (I'm guessing that this was only ever going to be an introductory type season for her anyway - i.e. lowish minutes assuming everyone else stays healthy, so it's not the same impact as if we had lost a main rotation player)

Going to say that Taylor/Coffey/Batkovic are locked into TOTW and the POTW will come from there, maybe Taylor because she did it across two games.

Yep, I like that. McPhee was by the standout single game performer last round but Griffin was rightly rewarded for doing it twice. I think Asia should be this week.
I hope Wilson or Smart get a spot in TOTW despite losing to the Fire. They were both tremendous.

The thing with Heal is that she's the 10th player on roster and that's it. So thats a lot of guards for not a lot of depth. Definitely a project player, who I doubt will stay West in two years time tbh but who really knows. It's actually crazy how many ball handlers Perth have given all of McPhee/Farnworth/Schwagmeyer can play forward.

There yo go Luuuc, Wilson got TOTW honours at the guard spot with Nurse.

^ Yep, I definitely like those picks. They're choosing well this season.
(Taking into account that they're trying to keep TOTW something resembling a starting 5 in a league where the bigs have been dominant)
