“It’s going to take patience from our team, from all of us, just to figure out one another and figure out what we’re good at, figure out what we’re not good at,” James said after scoring 26 points in L.A.'s 128-119 loss in Portland.

The Mystics guard and former Maryland standout is first active WNBA player to serve on an NBA bench and first female assistant in franchise's 58 years.
