Minnesota Lynx and Los Angeles Sparks meet in Game 1 of the WNBA finals on Sunday. The game will be played under a new format, where the Lynx will be playing their fifth finals in the last six years.
When the 12-0 Minnesota Lynx visit the 11-0 Los Angeles Sparks on Tuesday, the WNBA will have a bit of history on its hands.
Briann January had 19 points and six assists and the Indiana Fever stole home-court advantage in the WNBA Finals with a 75-69 victory over the Minnesota Lynx in Game 1 on Sunday.
All season long the Minnesota Lynx and Los Angeles Sparks have been the best two teams in the WNBA.
With Minnesota and Los Angeles running away from the rest of the league, the new playoff format the WNBA put in place this year couldn't have come at a better time.
