The Minnesota Lynx made history Tuesday night when they defeated the Indiana Fever convincingly.  “I told them, it’s more of an end result,” Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve said. “It’s more of an external (thing). Those records and streaks and those kinds of things… They’re not caught up in those kinds of moments… That’s kind of an end result kind of thing that they don’t really talk about.”From the start, the Lynx dominated the game, as they lead 25-15 after the first quarter. They went on to lead 45-31 at the half lead by a balanced Lynx offensive attack.

 

The Lynx might also have the deepest team in WNBA history. They had five players in double figures, led by Maya Moore who led all scorers with 16 points. Bench players are the key to the Lynx’s success, as they produced 34 points off the bench Tuesday night. Offensively, Minnesota had 21 assists compared to only 11 from Indiana.

“I thought we shared the ball,” Reeve said. “It’s just fun when you’re able to move it. It’s backbreaking when you make the extra pass.”

Defensively the Lynx were highly focused. They held Indiana to only 15% shooting from the three-point line held them to only 34% shooting overall from the field.

With this loss, it really hurts Indiana’s playoff chances as they drop to 4-7.  The Lynx who are now 11-0 have to keep winning to fend off Los Angeles who are off to a red hot 10-0 start.
