Fullcourt invited players from around the WNBA to blog periodically throughout the 2014 season. Today, Lynx rookie Asia Taylor checks in.
Thirty-two games have gone by in the WNBA season; it doesn't feel like that at all. I know everybody always says, "it goes so fast," but it really does. I feel like training camp and the first game was just yesterday. I've just been trying to see the growth between game one and now and its crazy!
Diana Taurasi once said her team needed to get over the hump with Minnesota, and that the Lynx were indeed, “Humpy.”
Last Saturday, the Phoenix Mercury admirably defended their home court against the Lynx in one of the biggest games of the season (although neither team would tell you that.) A game that started out with poor shooting and shaky defense, turned into a vicious competition were the Mercury outscored the Lynx 38-28 in the paint, and fought back to grab the victory by a mere two points.

Yep, here were are. The season is winding down, and we are just a few weeks out from the playoffs.
For the remainder of the season, I will be focusing on a series called, “In the Home Stretch”, which will cover the mood, the games, and overall feel of how the Mercury are arriving toward the end of the season and into the playoffs.

Since I last wrote, we've been winning more games, and we've been doing especially well on the road. The back-to-backs are kind of tough, but we've got more important games coming up. We're treating every game like it's a playoff game. Both our momentum and chemistry is coming up, and we're becoming more mature, which shows in some of the tough games we've pulled out.
Well, it doesn’t have the same ring as Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!, but you get the idea.
Tomorrow (7/31) is going to be a big day in the W. Sure, there is a four game line up with several teams in the playoff hunt. But there will be one game everyone will be watching, as the red hot Phoenix Mercury travel to the twin cities to take on their Western Conference rivals, the Minnesota Lynx.
