August 16, 2021
The GIST: The Seattle Storm’s Commissioner’s Cup win didn’t count toward their regular season standings, but yesterday’s loss to the Chicago Sky certainly did.

Second half start: After taking an Olympic break on July 15th, all 12 WNBA teams were finally back in action yesterday (*happiness*), and the reigning champ Storm were dealt a rare overtime loss from the Candace Parker–led Sky.

Up next: With less than five weeks remaining in the regular season, the top three teams seem like a lock for the playoffs, but the remaining five spots are up for grabs. 

  • It’s officially crunch time, and in the short term, the Storm will visit the NY Liberty on Wednesday, while everyone else plays tomorrow night. Didn’t you know? Ball is life.
