The San Antonio Silver Stars fell to the Indiana Fever by a final score of 80-63. Danielle Adams led the way for SA with 17 points and 9 rebounds. Shavonte Zellous had 20 points for Indiana. The Silver Stars drop to 9-16 on the season and 3-10 on the road. The Silver Stars next opponent is Tulsa on Friday and the good news is that the Stars only have 4 more road games to play this season, including the one on Friday at Tulsa. My game recap is below, along with game observations and notes.

GAME RECAP

Indianapolis

August 21, 2013

The San Antonio Silver Stars were looking to fix their road problems when they came to Indiana as they were 3-9 on the road this season. However, their road troubles continued as Indiana was able to pull out the victory and improve to .500 at home. The Silver Stars are now 3-10 on the road this season. That wasn’t the last of the Silver Star problems. Already short with their best two players, Danielle Robinson didn’t play in the second half as she injured her right knee during the last minutes of the 1st half. Danielle Robinson was leading the WNBA in assists per game with 6.9 and her status is not yet known. The Fever controlled this game thanks largely in part to San Antonio’s 19 turnovers compared to Indiana’s 12. They also managed to keep players in foul trouble making things even more difficult for San Antonio. Indiana led the first quarter by six 19-13 and built on a 22-12 run in the second quarter due to Tamika Catchings scoring 15 points. They built a 41-25 lead at half time. In the third quarter, San Antonio made it interesting when Davellyn White made two threes which cut Indiana’s lead to 44-37. However, IND was able to re take the lead thanks to Shavonte Zellous who was stellar in the second half. She had 20 points in her first game back from a foot injury. San Antonio never recovered and Indiana ran away with the game by a final score of 80-63.

GAME NOTES + OBSERVATIONS

  •  I sure hope Danielle Robinson is ok. The Silver Stars are not just the same without her leadership and her ability to run the team.
  • Chelsea Poppens played in her second game for San Antonio. She had 3 points, and was active offensively. She struggles defensively which is to be expected and I thought she was decent. She still has a long way to go before she becomes a good player.
  • Indiana’s Fever LiveAccess was sharp and the Fever had a decent attendance for a Wednesday evening with 7,416 people. It looked sparse, but full at the same time
  • This was an ugly game for SA. Not worth watching again for San Antonio fans.
