The Minnesota Lynx too on the New York Liberty on Sunday night with a chance to clinch the Western Conference as well as reclaim the best record in the league throne. It was an extremely close game that saw both teams build decent leads only to have the other team make a run and come back.
The Lynx made a huge run late to cut the Liberty lead to two points with just under two minutes remaining in the game, but failed to take advantage of their lockdown defense, turning the ball over on four of their last five possessions and letting the Liberty steal a 75-71 win on Minnesota’s home floor. With the win, the Liberty clinched the Eastern Conference and moved just a win away from clinching the best record in the WNBA.
Despite the loss, there were many highlights and great moments throughout the game. For those that may have missed the game, they can check out some of the best moments from Sunday night’s contest with this game’s photo gallery.
