Lynx dominate again, one win from WNBA title

Once again, the Minnesota Lynx left no doubt who the best team in the WNBA is tonight at Target Center.

Every member of Minnesota's starting five reached double figures, led by Seimone Augustus 20, and a lead that was 15 at the half got even bigger before Minnesota put Atlanta away, the final 88-63.

Minnesota shot a blistering 57 percent from the field, while holding the Dream to just 36 percent.

A small bit of foreshadowing for Minnesota before the game started came in introductions.

With the next two games in Atlanta northeast of Atlanta, Minnesota will have multiple chances to do just that should they not be able to finish the best-of-five series Thursday at the Arena at Gwinnett Center.

Back-to-back 25 point victories don't leave much doubt that the Lynx can accomplish just that.
