Lynx win WNBA title

Scoop Podcast Ep. 101 Glen Taylor on Lynx Sparks Game 5 Wiggins Extension etc

The change allowed the league's two best teams-the Los Angeles Sparks and Minnesota Lynx-a clear path to meet in the Finals despite both residing in the Western Conference. But Maya Moore did what elite players do, knocking down a runner to give the Lynx a five-point lead. Everything's easier when you dominate the boards. "It's not something we try to take for granted ever". The teams headed to Los Angeles, where the Sparks asserted their dominance on home court, taking game three of the series 75-64, the biggest margin thus far in the series (game one was decided by one point and game two by two points). She finished the game with 17 points and eight assists.

Los Angeles also deserves plenty of praise.

The Lynx have looked discombobulated offensively at times and face their own unique challenges in guarding a team as good as the Sparks. They have been in the finals in six of the last seven years and now find themselves in the company of Cynthia Cooper, Sheryl Swoopes and the Comets that dominated the league's early days.

Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve took a calculated risk and kept Whalen on the floor the whole 10 minutes, which usually doesn't happen. "So they did it". A second-quarter pass to Seimone Augustus for a 3-pointer after missing one of her own, prompting Whalen to turn and gesture to the roaring crowd.

Al-Falih noted that Aramco's IPO will be used as a catalyst for the opening up of the Saudi economy. These are part of efforts by two of the world's biggest oil producers to increase cooperation.

In the third quarter, the Lynx came out hitting shots and boosted their lead to 47-35, but Los Angeles calmed down and started getting the ball to Parker under the basket more often.

"It's great when the games have drama like we've had with the last-second shots and it's great when the games are close and we've had that", said Lobo. The Lynx, the going dynasty in the league, were dethroned.

"We're deeper than the first five (players), but our identity is those five", Reeve said.

Sylvia Fowles, the regular season MVP and WNBA Finals MVP, recorded a double-double in each game.

Danley's boyfriend Stephen Paddock was the gunman. "We are making arrangements to contact her upon her return", he said. They lived together in Mr Paddock's property in Babbling Brook Court, a two-bedroom home worth $396,000 (£297,554).

A year ago, it was questioned whether the Lynx would reach a fourth title with this core after they lost to the Sparks, a younger team built around 31-year-old Candace Parker and 27-year-old Nneka Ogwumike.

Leading up to the finale, the two teams had each scored 908 points in the last 12 matchups. Household names like Moore, Parker, Ogwumike and Whalen went at each other to the bitter end in two straight series. It's been good for the fans. That hurt, honestly. But our start wasn't as up to par as we wanted it to be, but we cut the lead and we got back in the game, and a couple calls didn't go our way. The Lynx were stuck in the University of Minnesota's Williams Arena for the playoffs, affectionately and appropriately known as "The Barn". The old "Barn" is filled with obstructed views - seats behind support posts and under awnings that make seeing the court hard. If an National Basketball Association team had reached the Finals six times over a seven-year stretch, placed four of its members on the U.S. Olympic team, and had a playoff winning percentage over.700 since 2011, such a squad would be celebrated from Boston to Boise and ESPN and Turner Sports would be politicking to air as many games nationally as they could. The Lynx turned it over 18 times, but were able to overcome that with 22 points off of the Sparks' mistakes. The WNBA MVP scored 17 points on 6-for-10 shooting and also snatched 20 rebounds, including seven on the offensive end.

"We have incredible scorers on this team, but you know we have to do it on the defense end and tonight we did", Bruson said.
