Minnesota Lynx Magic Number Down to 1

The Minnesota Lynx are one game away from clinching the best record in the WNBA. They are so good it's scary. One Lynx victory over the next four games or 1 loss by the Indiana Fever and the Minnesota Lynx will have clinched the best record in the entire WNBA. They beat Washington in the Target Center 73-56. This team is scary good and I can't wait for the playoffs. People should definitely try to get some tickets for the playoffs because who knows how far this team will go. I could definitely see them winning a WNBA championship. Can't wait for the parade!

Lynx Edge Out Victory Over Tulsa

Taj McWilliams-Franklin led the Minnesota Lynx to a 78-72 win Tuesday night against the Tulsa Shock.

This was a huge win for the Lynx because you never want to be the team that the Shock end up beating. The Tulsa Shock have an WNBA record 19 game losing streak going here.

McWilliams-Franklin had a late block that sealed the deal for the Lynx with 19 seconds to go in the game.

Minnesota Lynx Torched by Connecticut Sun

The Minnesota Lynx suffered a crushing loss to the Connecticut Sun and got absolutely torched 108-78 in Connecticut.

It sure seemed like the Lynx players were nervous. Especially Maya Moore, who attended the University of Connecticut and starred there for four years. She only managed to make 1 of the 7 shots she took against the Sun.

The Lynx are still 18-6 and in prime position to capture the number 1 seed in the Western Conference Playoffs.

Mercury End Lynx's 9 Game Win Streak

The Minnesota Lynx did all they could Sunday night, but still didn't come away with a win. The Lynx lost 85-80 to the Mercury in Phoenix on Sunday night.

Maya Moore Continues to Wow Lynx Crowd

Maya MooreThe Lynx have firmly shown the WNBA that they are the team to beat. The Lynx recently just pounded the reigning league champion Seattle with a score of 92-67 at the Target Center in front of a crowd of 7,856.

The Lynx will meet second place San Antonio on Sunday afternoon and again Thursday at the Target Center.

What is at the core of the Lynx's success? Or should I say who... Maya Moore. Moore has solidified her place as an emerging super star. Alongside Seimone Augustus, who just became the WNBA's fastest player to reach the 3,000-point mark, it appears that Maya Moore and the Lynx are serious contenders emerging to knock on the championship-door.
