Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

Word is Lindsay Whalen's return led to an uptick in preseason ticket sales: now all those new Lynx fans (and-- closer to my heart-- all the old ones) can say they have seen a big win. Minnesota blindsided the defending champs on national TV.

Rookie Monica Wright, coming off the bench for the first time, scored an astonishing 32. "My stomach is still in knots," she said.

Also good for the home team: Wiggins returned to the court, spelling Whalen at the PG position. The team at the Target Center now have two point guards with complementary skill sets: when Seimone comes back, how good can Minnesota be?
