Lynx win a decisive victory, thrilling fans

That's something only matched in league history by the now-defunct Houston Comets, who won the league's first four titles.

"Just to be mentioned in the conversation with the Comets is unbelievable, but I think we're still here", Brunson said. But Maya Moore did what elite players do, knocking down a runner to give the Lynx a five-point lead. Limited-view seats are available at face value through the team's website, which also has a link to the team-sponsored Flash Seats resale marketplace.

The story of Game 5, like Game 4, was rebounding.

Fowles was the top overall rebounder in the first half with 10, while Parker pulled down seven first-half rebounds for Los Angeles.

The game was all about the WNBA stars in the match up.

"If I didn't do anything else, I just wanted to make it my business to make sure I just go out there and rebound, and that was my downfall past year", said Sylvia Fowles.

"She was so good all game", Reeve said.

"We didn't like how game three ended for us, and we just wanted to come out and set the tempo and set the tone", said Fowles. Lynx F Sylvia Fowles, the reigning league MVP, had her fifth consecutive double-double in the game, which is a WNBA Finals record.

As the confetti commemorating a Lynx dynasty that added a fourth title in seven years fell onto the floor at the team's temporary home of Williams Arena on Wednesday night, the Lynx fell at the center of the court, landing in each other's arms. Moore signed a multi-year deal in 2015.

Chelsea Gray had 15 points and eight assists, while Nneka Ogwumike had a quieter night than usual.

"I think the overwhelming feeling that I have is just being so happy for this group of five players", coach Cheryl Reeve said of her core that led the way in the latest championship. "Some of the plays, diving on the floor for a loose ball, that's the stuff we talk about". The cumulative score in those games is 908-908. Moore had 10 boards, while Whalen contributed eight assists. Fowles finished with 17 points, but all five Minnesota starters scored at least 13 points. The Sparks made a weathered champion have to fight and dig out another trophy. Perhaps more impressive, with a win the Sparks would become the first team to win back-to-back titles since they did it in 2001-02 when L.A. was led by Lisa Leslie. A second-quarter pass to Seimone Augustus for a 3-pointer after missing one of her own, prompting Whalen to turn and gesture to the roaring crowd. With the team's regular season home-the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul-unavailable for the postseason, the Lynx shifted their postseason games to Williams Arena. "It's great for basketball, for women's basketball".

"I'm blessed I feel to just be around these guys every day", Reeve said, beginning to cry.

"It's no secrets. There's not a play we're going to call tomorrow that they won't know".

"We were right there at halftime, then they sort of extended their lead, and we hung around", said Sparks coach Brian Agler, who was whistled for a technical foul in the second quarter.

"I absolutely felt like I needed to bring more energy tonight, and I was hoping that my team would be able to feed off of that", said Brunson. "People are just admiring our game at this point and everyone is tuning in to see what's happening".

"Rebounding hurt", Parker said.

The Sparks will probably be in trouble if Fowles shoots 19 times again, considering how much of her work is done around the basket. Get the app and get the game. "We need to do a better job in the offseason of trying to figure out how to draw contact". Ultimately, they didn't have enough depth nor shooting to beat the Lynx this year.
