Despite finishing with the third-best record in the league, the Minnesota Lynx had their season end Sunday after a one-and-done playoff loss at home to the Chicago Sky. 

In the WNBA, the top two seeds get a bye all the way to the semifinals, while the third and fourth seeds receive a first-round bye but still have to play a single elimination second-round game. 

Minnesota needed to beat Chicago to reach a best-of-five semifinal series, but they were thumped at home 89-76 Sunday in Minneapolis. 

More to come.
