The Minnesota Lynx were in Phoenix on Sunday night taking on the Mercury looking to extend their lead in the Western Conference and, more importantly, clinch home-court advantage in the first round of the WNBA Playoffs; the Mercury had other plans.
The Mercury came out and absolutely suffocated the Lynx defensively, holding them to just nine points in the second quarter and just 22 points for the entire first half; the Mercury scored 21 points in the second quarter alone. Every time the Lynx made even the slightest run, the Mercury would follow with a run of their own and seemingly crush any chance the Lynx had of getting themselves back in the game. Phoenix cruised to an easy 79-67 victory and cut Minnesota’s lead in the Western Conference to just two and-a-half games.
Despite the loss, there were many amazing photos taken of Sunday night’s action. Though Lynx fans may not want to, they can check out all the great photos right here in the game’s photo gallery.
