If tonight's bobblehead giveaway isn't enough reason to come to Key Arena tonight, perhaps the actual game being played will be.
The league-best 11-2 Storm look to keep their unblemished home record intact against the visiting Indiana Fever who at 8-4 are in a three-way tie in the Eastern Conference at 7 pm at Key Arena. However, after a slow start to their season, the Fever are back on track, beating the Storm last week in Indiana 72-65. The challenge? Contending with the Fever's defensive intensity.
"I think Indiana is an exceptional defensive team but we sort of have high standards of how we would like to play and we just don't feel like we met those standards there," said Storm coach Brian Agler when . "And did they have something to do with that? Yeah. Should we have had a response to that? Yes. And I don't think we quite responded to the extent we should have."
While they can't turn back the clock and change their response from the first go-round, they have a chance to redeem themselves tonight. Billed by some as a "WNBA Finals preview", tonight's game could either illustrate the Storm's home court dominance or cast a looming shadow of doubt over whether they're the best team at all.
And bobbleheads are fun for the kids too, I guess.
