Thanks for joining us, folks. We'll have a game report posted soon on the web site from our correspondent covering the game in Los Angeles. And thank you for the kind words about the blog. We'll be icing our keyboarding fingers -- the 2 of them that we use -- after we sign off. And thanks to Lynx play-by-play voice @JWFOCKE for his tweets.
@Lindalee: Thank you. We did this because the game was being played in the afternoon and there was no television coverage other than NBA TV, which many people do not have.
