Finally, a dynasty in Minnesota professional sports. Not since the days of the Minnesota Lakers has a pro team from Minnesota dominated so much. They're going for their third straight appearance in the championship series, and it looks like they're well on their way to getting there. Way to go, Lynx! Keep up the good work!

other MN teams could learn some lessons from the Lynx on how to play together as a team even when the star player is out

Awesome win! One question is why is the only rookie (Sugar Rogers) playing significant minutes? She looked really awkward last night and didn't have much finesse. Lindsay Moore is a much better player, was a first round draft pick and yet she sits the bench. All around me people were yelling to put her in especially when the team was up by 20 points or more. The other rookies are as good, if not better than Sugar Rogers too. The vets are going to need some relief but putting in the benched rookies the last 3 minutes isn't going to help that. I am paying to see a win but I also want to know the good rookies are getting experience and can show their stuff beyond the last 2-3 min of the game.

Sports are suppose to be entertaining and last nights game definetly was entertaining. I coached girls basketball for 10 yeras as well as boys and caught myself ohwwwwing several times during the game.Lindsey's hard drive and reverse layup,Janet's block shot,Moore's smooth qiuck stop threes and the helpside defense were crowd pleasers.Lynx, out coached, out played and best of all out hustled

I never want to see a player out with an injury, but in some ways this is a good time for it to happen - with enough time left in the season to benefit from the experience gained by the bench. Wright and Peters are getting significant playing time and showing their depth. Rogers is getting a chance to work off some rookie rough edges and showed great tenacity on the defense. L.Moore and Jarry are getting a chance to contribute a little and slowly get experience. I'm not sure why we haven't seen much of Harris lately, but all in all the absence of Augustus will make them a stronger team for the long haul.

Absolutely a GREAT GAME!!! The defense was awesome and it drove the offense. Wright and Peters are looking more impressive every game. Basketball at its finest! Now lets take this intensity on the road...go LYNX!!!

This was a game to watch if you are a true fan of terrific fundamental basketball. A real beat-down by the Lynx.
