Expect Target Center to be rocking this Thursday.

The Minnesota Lynx survived a late comeback by the Los Angeles Sparks to clinch Game 4 of the WNBA Finals 85-79 at the Staples Center in L.A. to force the decider in the best-of-five series.

It sets up a mouthwatering winner-takes-all clash in downtown Minneapolis at 7 p.m. Thursday, as the Lynx bid to retain their WNBA championship.

Once again, Maya Moore was the hero Sunday, dropping 31 points on 9-of-17 shooting, adding nine rebounds and five assists, according to WNBA.com.

The Sparks ... sparked a fourth quarter comeback as they rallied from 10 points down in the third quarter to get to within a few points, but Moore displayed ice-cold calm to shoot four free throws in the last 10 seconds.

"In those moments, there is so much to think about, so I try to be locked in all the time," Moore told ESPN after the game.

"Sometimes, though, you look up and say, 'We need this moment.' We're fighting, we're battling, and I'm just conditioned to step up in those moments."
