When things are going well, they are really going well; the Minnesota Lynx can attest to that. Out two All-Star guards entering Friday night’s contest with the Indiana Fever, they watched as, near the end of the third quarter, All-Star game MVP and reigning league MVP took an accidental elbow to the face from teammate Sylvia Fowles and was forced to the locker room for the rest of the game. Such an injury can be deflating for most teams; the Minnesota Lynx are not like most teams.
Minnesota maintained its composure and finished what Moore helped to start – a Lynx victory. Their bench players came up huge and Minnesota defeated Indiana 81-65 and moved themselves just one win away from clinching the Western Conference.
There were so many great moments and plays in Friday night’s game, but here are just a few of the best gathered here in the game’s photo gallery.
