The Minnesota Lynx are one win away from the WNBA title. If they win, it will be the first professional sports championship the state has seen since the Twins won the World Series in 1991. Couple the Lynx' success with the agony in every other sport, and the ladies have become the talk of the town.
The road to a possible championship hasn't been all bells and whistles for the Lynx. They've had to come from behind to win each of the first two games. Seimone Augustus has been the hero in each game.
Minnesota may have to rely even more on Augustus because Taj McWilliams-Franklin may not play in Friday night's game three in Atlanta. She sprained her knee late in the fourth quarter of game two.
Healthy or not, it might already be too late for the Dream to come back and win the series. No team in WNBA history has come back to win the championship trailing two-games-to-none.
Game three of the series is Friday night in Atlanta at 7:00 p.m.
