WNBA Finals Game 5 2017 Live. The Lynx force a decisive fifth game in the WNBA Finals by scoring 22 points and grabbing 14 rebounds as Minnesota beat Los Angeles 80-69 on Sunday night. It’s the second consecutive year that these two teams will play a deciding game in Minnesota for the crown.
“Advantage? No, we’re back in Game 5. We wanted to make sure we came out and we played well,” Fowles said.
Minnesota, which is trying for its fourth title in seven years, played extremely well as they dominated inside the paint with baskets and rebounds. Minnesota outrebounded the Sparks 48-28. The Sparks had outrebounded the Lynx in Game 3 and that was a point of emphasis for the team to be more physical inside.
On Wednesday evening, the Minnesota Lynx and Los Angeles Sparks will meet in Game 5 of the WNBA Finals for a second straight year, in a winner-takes-all game that will decide whether one of the most impressive sports dynasties in recent sports history will live on, or if a new one will take the throne.
The Sparks will try and do what they did last year, and take the title from the Lynx in front of a rowdy Minnesota crowd, effectively usurping the Lynx as the most dominant and formidable team in the WNBA. The Lynx, meanwhile, will be looking for revenge from last year, and for a fourth WNBA championship in the last six years.
