Coach Cheryl Reeves has talked a lot about building the Lynx around a strong defense. Well, everybody knows that Seimone Augustus, Rebakah Brunson and Candice Wiggins are not playing yet, and it couldn't be more obvious that the 3 of them will improve the Lynx substantially, though on offense more than on the D, don't you think?
So, anyway, the point is that Seattle scored on 9 of its final 10 possessions to pull out the win. The Lynx weren't bad on offense, making 7-of-14 shots in the 4th though their turnovers outnumbered their offensive boards, 3-1. But the D was non-existent down the stretch, just as it was against Washington the other night. The Storm hit 3-of-4 from 2-point land, 3-of-5 from beyond the arc, and 4-for-4 from the line.
