The much-anticipated WNBA Finals rematch between the Lynx and the defending champion Los Angeles Sparks is finally here.
The dates, times and TV information have been released, starting with two games for the No. 1 seeded Lynx at Williams Arena. If the series is pushed to a Game 5, it will again be on the Lynx's home floor where they'd hope for a different result than the heartbreaking late shot that sealed the championship for the Sparks last October.
"I'm thrilled for this team to be in the finals for the sixth time in seven years," Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said. "This is a group that knows how to get this done. I suspect they're feeling, we don't want to get this far and not win the darn thing."
Tickets are already on sale and the Lynx are hoping to sell out the Barn.
