MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL – The Minnesota Lynx secured the No. 3 seed and earned a first-round bye in the 2021 WNBA Playoffs with their 83-77 victory against the Washington Mystics on Sunday.
The Lynx will tip-off against the lower-seed winner of the first-round for a single-elimination contest on Sunday, September 26 at Target Center. Timing will be determined at a later date. The winner will advance to the best-of-five semifinals to take on either the No. 1 seeded Connecticut Sun or No. 2 seeded Las Vegas Aces.
The Lynx’s 11th consecutive postseason appearance is the longest-active streak in the league and second-longest such run in WNBA history (Indiana, 2005-2016). It marks Minnesota’s 13th overall playoff appearance.
“We are incredibly excited and proud to be entering the WNBA playoffs for our 11th season in a row,” said Lynx President of Business Operations Carley Knox. “We have safely been building back our in-arena crowds and are hopeful that Lynx fans come out in full force during playoffs to support this amazing team. It’s time to once again pack Our House!”
