Sporting a ferocious intensity and deft touch, Rebekkah Brunson boosted the Minnesota Lynx to an 88-74 victory over the Atlanta Dream in Game 1 of the 2011 WNBA Finals on Sunday night.
Brunson poured in a team-high 26 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Lynx, who took a 1-0 series lead over the Dream with the opening-game win at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
"Rebekkah Brunson was about as key as you could get," said Lynx Head Coach Cheryl Reeve after the game. "You have games like this, you need X-Factors."
