April 22nd, 2016: In honor of training camp tipping-off in two days, today we go back to the Lynx’ camp in 2013. A lot of laughs thanks to assistant coach Shelley Patterson and great play throughout the season led Minnesota to their second WNBA Championship.
April 29th, 2016: It was announced this week that four Minnesota Lynx players were named to the 2016 USA Women’s Basketball Olympic roster. Maya Moore, Lindsay Whalen, Seimone Augustus and Sylvia Fowles will represent the Lynx this summer, and all of those players already won a Gold Medal with team USA in 2012. Fowles won a medal in 2012 as a member of the Chicago Sky, little did she know that she would be teaming up with three other players on her Olympic squad in the WNBA in 2015.
May 6th, 2016: Minnesota defeated the New York Liberty last night, just as they did last year in the 2015 WNBA preseason. Minnesota squeaked out a 77-74 victory in New York in yesterday’s matchup thanks to 17 points from Renee Montgomery and a combined 20 points and seven rebounds from Maya Moore and Sylvia Fowles. The Lynx won 85-80 in last season’s preseason game due in part to Lindsay Whalen’s (pictured above) seven points and five assists.
May 13th, 2016: It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for, the regular season has arrived! The Lynx will host the Phoenix Mercury tomorrow night on ESPN at 6:00 p.m. for their season opener. Minnesota was victorious in last year’s home opener against the Tulsa Shock 83-75, due in part to Seimone Augustus’ 16 points and five boards. Be sure to tune-in on Saturday evening as the Lynx look to get the season off on the right foot as they prepare to defend their 2015 WNBA Championship.
May 20th, 2016: The Lynx will take on the Seattle Storm on Sunday and a familiar face will be across the court from them. Monica Wright won two Championships with Minnesota, in 2011 and 2013, and was traded mid-season last year to Seattle for guard Renee Montgomery. In 2013, Wright contributed nicely off the bench by averaging nine points, three rebounds and two assists per game. In the photo above, Maya Moore and Wright celebrate a victory over the Los Angeles Sparks on June 28th, 2013.
June 3rd, 2016: The Minnesota Lynx are going for the 7th straight win to start off the 2016 season on Saturday night, June 4th. So, to bring the Lynx a little luck, we decided to take a look back on the last time Minnesota was 7-0. On June 1st, 2014, the Lynx defeated the San Antonio Stars, 87-79, to make it their seventh victory in a row to start off the regular season. Hopefully Maya Moore and company can have a couple of these spectacular looking finishes on their way to a win tomorrow night.
June 10th, 2016: The Lynx will take on the 6-2 Atlanta Dream on Friday night, so in honor of their game, we decided to flashback to a memorable moment the Lynx had inside of Phillips Arena. On Oct. 7th, 2011, the Minnesota Lynx defeated the Dream in three games in the WNBA Finals to capture their first Championship. Let’s hope Maya Moore will be all smiles on Friday night as she is in this picture.
June 17th, 2016: The undefeated and record-setting 11-0 Minnesota Lynx will take on Breanna Stewart and the Seattle Storm for the second time this season on Sunday night. Today we take it back to May 22nd when the Lynx defeated the Storm and the number one overall pick in the 2016 WNBA draft, 78-71. Stewart got a nice ‘welcome to the league’ from Minnesota who forced her to go 5-for-19 from the field.
June 24th, 2016: The last time the Minnesota Lynx beat the Los Angeles Sparks on their home court was Sept. 22nd, 2015. The defending WNBA Champions knocked the Sparks out of the playoffs last season, 91-80, thanks to 20 points and eight boards from Maya Moore. The Lynx will look to accomplish a similar outcome on Friday night as Los Angeles is 12-1 and will be looking to avenge their first loss of the season that was handed to them by Minnesota just three days ago. It will be a must-see matchup so don’t forget to tune-in at 7:00 to take in all of the action.
July 1st, 2016: The Lynx will face-off against the 3-12 San Antonio Stars on Saturday night, so today we take a quick glance back at the last time these two teams battled it out. On August 21st, 2015, Minnesota came out victorious in San Antonio, beating the home team 78-61. After losing three straight games, let’s hope the Lynx can get back on track tomorrow night against the Stars.
July 15th, 2016: Minnesota takes on a talented New York Liberty team tonight, so today we flashback to the last time the Lynx defeated their Eastern Conference foe inside the Target Center. Behind 30 points from Maya Moore, Minnesota defeated the Liberty 87-82 on May 24th, 2014.
August 5th, 2016: In honor of Seimone Augustus and Sylvia Fowles looking to add more hardware to their collection in their third consecutive Big Games, we throw it back to 2008 when they both won the grand prize.
August 12th, 2016: It’s a battle of the undefeated’s on Friday afternoon as Team USA takes on Canada in Brazil. Today, we take it back to July 29th, 2016 when these two teams competed at a showcase game in Connecticut. With both teams coming into the contest 3-0, the 1:30 matchup on NBCSN will be one to watch. Go USA!
