Lynx looked ready for the finals from the start of the series. Taking a commanding game 1 by around 20, game 2 showed even the WNBA's best can't look past the star-studded headline-grabbing EDD+kristi+Mees. The lynx showed again in this series that they can adapt to play any game opponents want to play. Game 3 can be broken down into a few key stats
Here is the game by the numbers, courtesy of Hoopsviz!
SCORING! The Mystics have 3 starters that in 2016 were top 4 in the league in 3 point %. This year they haven't had as great percentage but they shoot the most 3's. Lynx outdid them at their own game. Getting the 3 ball to drop early and really steady until the 4th put the Lynx in a position of control.
In the playoffs the Mystics had a DOMINATING performance in the paint. Then they met the Brunson/Fowles duo. Not only did Lynx out rebounded the mystics all game they also scored more second change points than the Mystics (second chance points were key to the mystics playoff push).
