Minnesota teams just don't come back from 25 point deficits; but, this one amazinly did. Hope Seimone's ankle doesn't keep her out of the lineup or slow her up. We'll need her in the big games coming up.

Closed-circuit to Comcast - here's an idea: when given a choice, always choose to broadcast a successful local team over the broadcast of a terrible local team. Few Comcast viewers care about the Twins this year (or for the foreseeable future). Some might care about the Lynx (who don't just win, but play an enjoyable, fast-paced style of basketball), especially if they ever got to see them.

I've gone to a bunch of games this year. What is up with the first half slumps? This one was heartbreaking when the Lynx were shooting in the single digits for field goal percentage. Yikes! And then we switch ends and the tables are turned. I'm glad we had the guts to fight and claw back into the game. Go Lynx!

A very enjoyable time watching the hard-working, gritty Lynx claw their way back into the game and steal it from a good Atlanta team. The excitement of such competitive basketball going down to the wire reminded me of the days when the KG-led Timberwolves provided many similar come-from behind wins against good teams in the NBA.

Talk about heart! Our Lynx showed us all the true meaning of what that means. I think it's a shame that our Champs get such a little amount of media coverage after putting forth such effort! Bowing to Taj -- WOW!

OMG! Last nights game was off the chain. I was telling a friend about Double OT game in 2003 with Sacramento Monarchs & Houston Comets. BAM! Monarchs curse! We got a Double OT! Minnesota Lynx show true sportsmanship, teamwork, etc.... GO LYNX!
