MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Lynx are still the No. 1 seed, but in a best of three series, you best be careful.
The defending WNBA champs face Seattle in the deciding game three Tuesday night at the Target Center.
The Lynx were reminded in Game 2 that they are good, but not unbeatable.
“In a shorter series there’s less margin for error, and sometimes a lesser talented team could jump up and bite you,” said coach Cheryl Reeve.
At least Game 3 is being played at home for the Lynx.
“The great thing about it is we’re at home, and that’s what we’ve worked this season to have,” Seimone Augustus said. “Tonight looks to be in our favor.”
The arrival of Lauren Jackson back on Seattle’s roster has changed the team completely. She’s not the only player who could change the game.
Former Lynx star Katie Smith, now with the Storm, is now a seasoned veteran and knows what this game means.
“It’s going to be a knock-down, drag-out game, and dictated by a couple of players here and there,” Smith said.
