Not sure if this is allowed, but I wrote a preview for this game for the Flyers. Don't get paid for it or anything, but it took a lot of work, so would be great for at least someone to see it!

They aren't usually this Liz centric, but she has flat out dominated the Fire so far.

Nice! Great read, Ryan.

Do you mind sharing where you got your advanced stats from?

Thanks man! I go over the film and track everything myself in a spreadsheet. Doesn't seem to be any other way at the moment unfortunately

You do realise Boomers play caps BEFORE this game , you would think the only team in the entire competition was Flyers .
11 of their 13 played games all on Foxtel or ANC while all the other teams relegated to kayo

How are other teams supposed to get exposure to get sponsors when Flyers take up everything, not enough that good old Gerry Jayco pours squillions in fir them to buy a tram , then they get every ounce of airtime allocated by WNBL and BA in every media outlet

Really well balanced equality here !!!???

Yea I wrote that for the Flyers, that's why it is extremely biased.

Chill out. Maybe blame the WNBL the flyers don't have any say in which games get played on ABC. I’d assume the WNBL made the decision that Cambage would bring in the most outside viewers

Thanks Ryan!

Awesome job with these articles. I have been wondering who has been writing them as your name isn't listed. I enjoyed your piece about O'Hea on the defensive end the other week and other pieces you've written.

Charting per possession by hand sounds like a lot of hard work, you might need to learn to scrape the play by play (although you won't get the pick and roll ppp) and other bits of info you use.

Thanks Vodka, nice to hear some people are enjoying them. It's a bit of a pain but thankfully there weren’t too many games this year!

Getting feisty out there. I like it.
Home court proving fairly advantageous so far.

Mitchell's best game of the season.
Still shouldn’t make opals with the players she’s up against in Tokyo.

Mitchell is cooked



as a result of being on fire for the first 20 minutes

Umps seem to be letting the crowd into the game a little bit

Likely pgs for WC teams could be...

fujioka, motohashi, yoshida, machida, Hartley, epoupa, bernies, fathoux, allemand, capreaux, abdelkader, bird, Carter, Canada, ionescu, Dangerfield, oneill, palau, ouvina, cazorla, Romero, colley, langlois, wang, stanacev

I'm not sure Mitchell can compete defensively with most of those.

loved how people were talking like there was no home court advantage this season, fire have had the biggest advantage in league history

I've been saying that all season, people suggesting Seebohm was some magic worker (not saying he’s not a good coach) but that home court/crowd advantage cannot be underestimated in helping the Fire get to where they are

Refs need to get some composure here, crowd shouldn't determine the fouls buddy

You want me to lighten up? You're the one complaining about a player having a little fun with the crowd, nothing serious, you definitely need to relax. Ms Cambage living rent free in your mind

Cannot stand watching scam age on the court, it's disgraceful her attitude , imagine how good she could be if she found some humility, but in saying that last night she got very little called and they literally were hanging off her at times .

Her overall attitude is what causes her more grief, she’s a disrespectful person but wants everyone to respect her

Shame she can’t take a leaf from Magbegor or Mitchell , both exemplary players and people on and off the court , they are both a pleasure to watch , their is a huge difference between being confident and being an arrogant ahole ....

Exactly right. Personalities make the game more entertaining. She's not hurting anyway just having a little fun

She is no different to the way Lebron carries on, on the court, so why the difference? Some times she goes over the top but generally I don't see a problem. She plays with passion and shows her emotions, if players don't everyone complains about them being boring and bland.

Due to her being such a physically dominate player and slight contact from her on other players appears worse than it really is, where she can absorb contact. Bit like a truck crashing into a mini and a train..... That's where I see it. Contact is contact, calls shouldn't be made on how much you can take.

I agree with what you say about contact, but she was on the ground more than any of the other bigs on the court last night in a blatant attempt to milk fouls.

She was on the floor all night bc the Fire were being overly aggressive towards her because they knew they could be without consequence

Leilani Mitchell is a class act. On and off court.

#076 how is that any different to any other team/player targeting weaknesses of other players... posting up tiny guards, driving at less mobile players? Bigs using their height and length advantage to swat away shots??

It's different bc players use illegal techniques to beat Cambage, posting up on small players isn’t against the rules last time I checked?
