Minnesota Lynx have long break before WNBA Finals

Now that they've clinched their second-consecutive Western Conference Championship, the Minnesota Lynx can enjoy an extended rest before the WNBA Finals.

Coach Cheryl Reeve gave players a day off on Monday, following their big win on Sunday that propelled them into the finals. Said Reeve:

"We're beat and we're tired, both physically and mentally. One of the pleasing things about this break is that now we can start to breathe a bit. The calm is there to help us physically and mentally prepare for the next step."

And Reeve certainly knows how to prepare a team for the finals. In four seasons as an assistant coach for Detroit, the Shock made it to three WNBA finals.

The Lynx will play either Connecticut or Indiana on Sunday in Game 1 of the WNBA Finals. Minnesota will start its title defense at home at the Target Center in Minneapolis.
