Seimone Augusts and the Lynx played a decent game. I have definitely seen them play better defense and offense. If they would have played the same in the first half as they did in the second half, the outcome would have been different. They would have won, but by a much larger margin. Maya Moore and Rebekkah Brunson both had 16 points. Brunson had several offensive rebounds to give her team extra possessions. The Lynx as a team played better offense than defense and that showed in the second half.
Matee Ajavon is the face of the Mystics right now. She scored a game high 20 points. She comes off the bench ready to play and ready to take over the game. I don’t understand why she doesn’t start, but I guess they like having that spark off the bench. She not only had 20 points but she had 7 steals as well. I can’t believe how well she played. If her team played the way she did, they would have one. They just couldn’t keep up.
Even though the Mystics rallied back, surged by Ajavon, Whalen hit the last shot.
