The Lynx are so good. They got a much needed win against Tulsa and are now 6-3, good for second place in the Western Conference. With Maya Moore and Simone Augustus on the team, they are just pretty darn bossy. They absolutely slaughtered Tulsa 101-71, forcing 27 turnovers.
So if your looking for something to do, head down to the Target Center and watch the dominating Lynx. They are absolute studs and are going to win the WNBA Championship.
