Scouting Report: Lynx at Mercury

After a scare in Game 2, the Lynx are riding on a strong second half on Sunday, hoping to bring that momentum into the deciding Game 3. It wonít be easy, especially on the road against a Phoenix team that finished with the best record in WNBA history in 2014. A win would bring the Lynx to the WNBA Finals for the fourth straight season. They are hoping that results in winning their third, and second consecutive WNBA title.
