Seattle Storm vs. Minnesota Lynx
Who Wins? The Lynx. The Lynx are playing like they won they championship last year as well as playing like they want the championship this year. Seimone Augustus is playing better than a champion! Maya Moore is still a huge factor for the Lynx and now that she’s got a year under her belt she is even better. Rebekkah Brunson and Lindsey Whalen add more threats for this team. The Storm are falling flat without Lauren Jackson, Swin Cash, and Le’Coe Willingham. Sue Bird is trying to keep the same team, but they just can’t. Tina Thompson is still trying to find her flow and it hasn’t appeared yet. The Lynx are playing too well for a team like Seattle to beat them.
Indiana Fever vs. Atlanta Dream
Who Wins? Indiana Fever. These 2 teams played each other earlier in the season and the Fever showed the Dream they are backing with a vengeance! Katie Douglas and Tamika Catchings have been playing phenomenally. Both of them have came out hot starting in the first quarter and not ending until the final buzzer. The Dream don’t have anything to counter that except Angel McCoughtry. McCoughtry can’t do it all even though she may think she can. She needs a team behind her that will put up 8 or 9 points a game. Harding isn’t a scorer, but she is an excellent point guard. Jessica Davenport has stepped up in the post. The Dream falls short in that category. No one on their team can counter her power and force. Fever wins this game if they can perform as they did in their last matchup.
