The Seattle Storm finally found a way to finish a game -- and in the process, they finished off Minnesota's season-opening win streak.
Tanisha Wright scored 13 points, including a pair of free throws with 10.3 seconds left, and the Storm hung on to hand the Lynx their first loss of the season Friday night 65-62.
Seimone Augustus hit a 15-foot jumper with 21.1 seconds left and the Minnesota Lynx held off Seattle and the retiring Tina Thompson for a 58-55 victory Sunday and a sweep of the best-of-three Western Conference semifinal series.
Teams have learned that containing Maya Moore is a key to having a chance against the Minnesota Lynx, who have been the WNBA’s best regular season team over the last three years.
The Seattle Storm kept Moore frustrated for 20 minutes on Friday night. However, it wasn’t nearly enough.
Even as they've won six games in a row, Rebekkah Brunson and the Minnesota Lynx are making sure they don't get too far ahead of themselves.
Brunson scored 19 points to help the Lynx beat the Seattle Storm 75-60 on Saturday night, clinching at least a tie for the Western Conference title.
