After the Lynx received their championship rings and raised a fourth banner in the arena, Chelsea Gray and the Lynx gave them their parting shot. Gray had 18 points, including chelsea double-clutch off-balance in the lane at the buzzer that gave the short-handed Sparks a victory over the Lynx on Sunday in a dramatic rematch of last year's finals.
I still don't believe. I don't even know how, but it was amazing. Lindsay Whalen had 10 of her 17 points in the fourth quarter, including a pair of free throws with 5.
Gray then took the ball after a timeout at the left wing, used a spin dribble to evade Seimone Augustus and reached the paint in time for the final heave. The Sparks-Lynx title pairing was made possible in when the WNBA switched to a conference-less postseason format, and the Sparks won on Minnesota's home court that year. Last fall, the Lynx avenged that crushing loss by beating Los Angeles at Williams Arena, where Whalen played her college games, while Target Center was being renovated. Over the previous two years, the Sparks and Lynx split their 16 matchups, with five wins apiece in the playoffs and three victories each pussyman 2 the regular season.
This was the first time the Lynx lost a season opener sincechelsea year of their first title.
