First things first: the Liberty beat the Lynx 78-62 last night, and clinched a playoff spot. Leilani Mitchell put up 24 points for New York, including six three-point shots. The Lynx still have the league’s best record, despite the loss, and get top seed and home court advantage in the West.
The Sun kicked the butts of the Fever, and Tina Charles recorded a triple-double in the process: 10 points, 10 assists, 16 rebounds. It was the first triple-dub in the Sun’s history, and only the fifth in league history.
The Shock made things difficult, but the Storm pulled out the win, 78-72. Seattle has clinched their eight consecutive playoff appearance.
Ivory Latta will miss the rest of the season with an injury. Too bad the Shock and the Tulsa World don’t want to tell us what that is.
