Well, the Minnesota Lynx have backed themselves into a corner, and face a must-win on Sunday against Indiana if they want to reach the post-season.â†µ
The Lynx fell to the Los Angeles Sparks last night by a score of 98-91, a loss that clinched a playoff berth for the Sparks. The San Antonio Silver Stars, who the Lynx started Friday night tied with, were also victorious, topping Indiana 75-61.â†µ
This means that if the Lynx can beat Indiana on Sunday afternoon and the Silver Stars fall to the Phoenix Mercury, the Lynx will make the playoffs and travel to either Seattle or Phoenix to start the post-season. Any other scenario will result in the Lynx staying home for the playoffs.
