Lynx-Sparks WNBA Finals Game 5 Preview

October 03, 2017 05:57 PM

The Los Angeles Sparks and Minnesota Lynx are preparing for their second WNBA Finals Game 5 in as many seasons. That only tells half of the story of how close the series has been.
    
The two teams have played 12 games total from Game 1 of last year's finals through Game 4 on Sunday night. The cumulative score in those games is 908-908.
    
The two best teams in the league have one more game to play on Wednesday night in Minnesota.
    
Last year, the Sparks beat the Lynx in Minnesota on a last-second put-back from Nneka Ogwumike to capture the franchise's third championship. A win on Wednesday would make the Sparks the first repeat champions since 2002.
