Lynx win 4th straight, then troll Vegas star Kelsey Plum for calling them 'old'

The Lynx might be old but they still whooped the Vegas Aces.

Don't look now, but the Minnesota Lynx are back in beast mode and closing in on the Western Conference leaders. 

Minnesota won its fourth straight game Sunday, stomping the Las Vegas Aces 88-73. The victory moves them to within three games of first place and just two games behind third-place Phoenix, whom the Lynx routed on Friday.  

Maya Moore scored 23 and Sylvia Fowles added 20 points and 10 rebounds

Kirk Cousins is bragging about his conversion van again

Before the game Kelsey Plum, a star player for the Aces who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 WNBA Draft, called the Lynx "old." 

Minnesota caught wind of the interview and took to trolling her on Twitter after the game. 

And it's probably not a good sign for Plum that Cheryl Reeve, the future Hall of Fame coach of the Lynx, tagged her in a tweet.

Plum has since apologized, saying she meant nothing but respect to the defending WNBA champs.
