Oh, snap!

Tuesday the Lynx snapped the Sparks’ winning streak at home, and tonight Los Angeles returned the favor, handing Minnesota their first loss of the season, 94-76.

Video.

Thoughts:

– The Lynx looked really tired at the end of the game.

– I haven’t seen the Sparks look this good since the 2006 season.

– Over 13,000 fans at Target Center! Alright, Minnesota!!

– I hope both teams stay healthy, because this is fun!

– Next match up between these two is Sept. 6, in LA.

– WOO!

– The officiating sucked big time, though.
