Lynx win 2nd straight, Cheryl Reeve makes coaching history

Reeve is the eighth coach in league history with 200 wins.

It's wasn't pretty, but the Minnesota Lynx walked off the court Tuesday night with a 91-83 win over the Dallas Wings. 

Maya Moore led the way with 21 points, seven assists, four rebounds and three steals, and Sylvia Fowles scored 19 points with 17 rebounds and five steals. 

The victory is Minnesota's second in a row and the 200th of head coach Cheryl Reeve's career, putting her in a group of just eight coaches to reach 200 wins.

Reeve was satisfied with the victory but not the fourth quarter, when Dallas got within five points after trailing by 18 at the end of three quarters. Reeve said failing to finish strong could haunt them if they don't fix the problem as soon as possible. 

“We won the game and they should be happy about that but I don’t want them to be satisfied because that could haunt you, to play so well and to be so bad,” she said, via WNBA.com. “It’s something we’re trying to be mindful of, something we’re trying to get better at, but we’re not there yet. Happy to talk about it after a W, but it’s something we have to work on.”
