This will be the match up to watch. Being out here in Utah I can't go to the game but I hope 12 or 13 thousand go in my place and just cheer as loud as they can!

I'm on the west coast, but I and some other converts are gonna watch. Wish I was in MN I wouldn't miss a playoff game! Gonna be tough against the Mercury - Taurasi, Penny Taylor, Candice Dupree and DeWanna Bonner off the bench(if she's open inside half court she can make it). Go Lynx!!

I plan to watch the game. It will be only my second Lynx game that I've watched. I will watch because they are winning. If they were losing, I would not watch. And no, don't you dare give me crap about being a "fair-weather fan." That term applies to high school games and neighborhood softball teams. The Lynx are professionals; they ask good money for people to buy their product, and if they don't produce a good product (see Vikings, Twins, Wolves, Gophers), they don't deserve customers. So there. Go Lynx!

why is this lack of coverage logical in mn. now ?. this SPORT called wnba is really looking good. these people seem to care and work very hard. i am watching 2 games in a row; and the 1st one is very entertaining. it is not just about some local team; it is about athletes and people that play with pride and grit. these players[all] actually seem to care about playing SPORTS. i guess it takes a while to appreciate effort. they care!. more tv is merited.

Wow, Maya Moore is outscoring the highest scoring team in the WNBA after 1 quarter all by herself! Seriously??

remember SPORTS ?. as in team play ?. been a while ?. and if this team loses a game ?. or 3 ?. it can't be 100. these players ARE fun ; win or lose !. the yokel local [ so who ?] sportswriters have decided to give this team an article[like a or the] lately. these 2 games tonite are more entertainment than than the twins or vikes have delivered in 1 + years.

@19jack48, agreed! The Lynx game was held up a bit for the end of the Atlanta-Indiana game but I didn't mind because that game was exciting! And now the Lynx are doing amazing things to stay ahead of Phoenix. This is fun!

if phx misses free throws?. bad for them. but if they make most? look out for a 15 to 2 run . don't fall for any kind of rope a dope game plan!. no people own anything untill the account is settled to their advantage. i think wnba is better than most of the pseudo sports on espn in the last 3 years. fun! may be worth more than hype?. obscure idea?. have what it is 4 u.
