After the win in the Western Conference Finals against the Phoenix Mercury, Seattle Storm coach Brian Agler briefly discussed his potential Eastern Conference WNBA Finals opponent, who began their series hours after the Storm’s win.
On the New York Liberty:
“New York is a team that has really come on here as of late. Down the stretch they’ve had a great run — I think they won ten or eleven in a row at one point. They were really knocking on the door to get the top seed. And they beat Indiana in a very physical and competitive series."
On the Atlanta Dream:
“Atlanta on the other got off to a great start and then leveled off and then played about .500 basketball all the way through until the playoffs. Once they got in the playoffs they made a change in their starting lineup and they’ve got great players. They’re a high scoring team. They’re a great rebounding team. It’s gonna be sort of a contrasting type style also in the Eastern Conference.”
