Lynx answer w/ a 6-0 run. 71-67 w/ 5:44 left. I think this one is going down to the wire.

Minnesota has kinda fallen apart last 2 minutes. No points, about as many turnovers as shot attempts. But Seattle has only scored 3 in that time. Game has gotten ugly.

edit--scratch that, 4 straight TOs for the Lynx according to the announcer

I know some of this is Seattle playing well at home, especially on D, but Minnesota looks bad.

I'm so puzzled as to how Chicago lost to them 3 times at beat every other team at least once.

Syl just leveled Canada on a pick. She's been crushing people w/out drawing fouls. How does that work?

Seattle leaving a few points on the board w/ missed FTs. Collier finally broke the Lynx drought w/ 1 of 2 FTs, then Dantas hit a 3. 80-71 w/ 36 seconds left.

starting back court scoring--Seattle 44 Minnesota 1

If your offense consists of trying to force every possession into the post, this is what you get.

Uh, because there's such a thing as a legal pick?
There's also extending your arms which makes it an illegal pick. But the one I complained about earlier where she clobbered Loyd on a drive w/ no call, there's no defending that one. She's big and she's physical, and in this game she got away w/ a lot of what should've been called fouls.

Loyd and Canada outscored Sims and Robinson 44-1. Ouch.
Even worse, ended up 48-1. Career high 26 for Canada.
Game set match there. Backcourt subs for Minnestoa (Brown/Augustus) had 11 and Seattle (Zellous, Whitcomb) had 10, so that was kind of a wash (although Whitcomb and Zellous each hit a big hoop to get back to a 10-point lead...timing is everything!).

Here's an AP article and box score from the Times:

The pony tailed Samuelson. I am not sure if it is an exhibition game as I dont think the season started yet. By the way, nice ref shirts (note if there more than one video in the tweet, it is video #2)

I watch Ezi play Mississippi State in the World University Games - she looked very overrated. I wasn’t impressed.
