Kym's Top 5 Weapons to an ATL Win

While we would love to be rooting for the Liberty at this point in the season, we will all be watching as Atlanta sets up to represent the Eastern Conference in Game 2 on Wednesday. Kym Hampton, Liberty legend and Ring of Honor inductee dishes on the Top 5 Weapons to an Atlanta victory over the Minnesota Lynx in Game 2 of the 2011 WNBA Finals.

  1. NEVER GIVE UP!!!
    Always know teams will make runs, but pull it together when Minnesota does and snap out of it.
  2. Take Care of the Basketball
    Don't make it easy for them. Atlanta did a nice job of that in the first game (10 turnovers) and it needs to continue.
  3. Stop Watching Angel
    I know when she's on, it's a thing of beauty, but... it's going to take the TEAM to win and that means getting the BIGS involved too. Angel scored 33 and another guard, Lindsey Harding, had 20. The inside game was virtually non-existent.
  4. Keep Minnesota off of the Offensive Glass
    Really... they already have the best record in the league, don't help them. The Lynx outrebounded Atlanta 40-28, another indication of their dominance in the post.
  5. RUNNNNNNN
    ATL is almost unstoppable when all cylinders are full steam ahead.

Game 2 of the WNBA Finals will air on ESPN2, Wednesday, October 5th at 8 pm.
