Lynx to iron out kinks: WNBL

WITH three matches in six days as the WNBL seeks to restore its coronavirus-hit 2021-22 season, the Perth Lynx will have a series of opportunities to iron out a few kinks, albeit against three teams most are touting as likely to make up 75 per cent of the Final Four.

Perth finally opened its season in Adelaide against the Lightning but despite a blazing 16-2 start and a 15-point lead at 60-45, succumbed 86-88 as Olympians Alanna Smith and Stephanie Talbot steered the home team to safe shores.

The Lynx ultimately drowned in a swirl of solo adventuring and bad decision-making, none worse than coach Ryan Petrik playing his five starters all into the 31-plus minutes range, all of them with double-figure shot attempts and Marina Mabrey way out in front with 24. She made 10.

A big plus of this team was supposed to be the depth of its multi-talented roster.

Petrik has had some time now to figure it out but runs into defending champion Southside Flyers in Ballarat tonight. Then Perth faces Canberra in Canberra on Friday before zapping back "home" to Ballarat to host Melbourne.

That's after Melbourne takes on Southside again on Saturday.

Fingers crossed this part of the schedule goes on and is unaffected by any sudden outbreaks.
