WNBA Finals: MVP Sylvia Fowles leads Lynx to fourth championship

06 October 2017

"(The 2016 Finals) haunted me for a long time after Game 5 past year. "It's so hard to get here it doesn't just happen all the work you have to put in to continue to get here it's just awesome I wouldn't want to do it with anybody else".

Their four titles match the now-defunct Houston Comets for most in league history and were earned mostly with the same starting lineup. The Lynx also won titles in 2011, 2013 and 2015. "You know, most importantly about this group, we let each other be ourselves, and there is so much to be said for that". 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).

Candace Parker had 19 points, 15 rebounds and five assists for the Sparks, who were looking to become the first repeat champions in 15 years.

"Honestly, rebounding", she said. "For the five that was out there, we wanted to make sure we had high energy". But in the old "Barn", as it's called, there is no place for the noise to go. We just have to do a better job in the off-season of trying to figure out how to draw contact. Lindsay Whalen also scored 17 points with eight of her points coming on an 8-for-8 charity stripe performance. Minnesota opened up an 11-point lead at one point in the first, but the Sparks closed the quarter on an 11-2 run, cutting the Minnesota advantage to 21-19 after 10 minutes. The Lynx clinched their fourth title in seven years in front of 14,632 fans, and the atmosphere and intensity on display at the arena left an impression on the team. The Sparks got a dozen in the first half from Parker, despite her missing a trio of 3-point shots. The Sparks went a awful 2-of-18 from 3-point range on Wednesday, so more effective and consistent perimeter shooting are qualities both of them can bring.

"We came in at the beginning of the season and were like look, we lost off rebounds so that was at the top of mindset going into Game 5".

"All we can do is keep delivering our message in whatever way (we) feel comfortable in delivering it", says Carson, "and hopefully one day they'll finally understand the point of it all". That's a credit to our team, to fight hard and put ourselves in position. I'll play it by ear, and [general manager Penny Toler] and I have a really good relationship and stay in contact.

Before the 2016 season, the WNBA Board of Governors ushered in a number of changes in the league's playoff structure, including one that allowed for teams from the same conference to compete in the finals instead of the traditional NBA format of East vs.

Truth be told, we don't know how the Sparks will react.
