Lynx force 5!
Lynx win game 4 (80-69).
With their backs against the wall, the Lynx looked focused whistle to whistle. We at the Insidr have stressed that players like Rebekkah Brunson, Seimone Augustus, Odessy Sims and Chelsea Gray would be key for their team to win. Game 1 we saw Gray do it and at times Sims, but tonight Brunson took over showing why she is on the brink of becoming the first player to win 5 rings. The Sparks struggled to outmuscle the Lynx frontcourt letting the Lynx take multiple second-chance attempts. L.A. was able to get the fans blood pumping closing in on MN. But they were not able to get close enough to perform any game-ending heroics. Postgame presser showed the frustration building up in Sparks, they wanted to win at home and after a physical first 4 games, the finale will be epic.
Thanks to Immersive sports we have the detailed stat breakdown.
