Lynx take game two, 101-95

What was that? It was Angel McCoughtry and Seimone “sick filthy crossover” Augustus duking it out for the game two win.

Both broke the finals scoring record – McCoughtry with 38 and Augustus with 36. But in the end it was the Lynx who came up big in the fourth quarter, for the second time in a row, for the 101-95 win.

To prepare for tonight’s matchup, the Lynx played a game of “angry birds.”

Lindsay Whalen’s winning presence is rubbing off on the Lynx, a columnist says.

Augustus is scoring big, and is looking cool doing it.

Over 15,000 loud fans packed the Target Center in Minneapolis for tonight’s game. Two fans talk about their Lynx fever.

The Dream now have no margin for error.

Yesterday, hoopfeed’s Cheryl Coward interviewed Charde Houston and Coco Miller and Whalen.

The Atlanta Braves, Falcons and Hawks have bought 1,500 tickets for fans to Friday’s home game. It is gratifying to see those in the Finals cities really step up for their teams the last few years.

My gratifying moment of the evening was discussing the game afterward with a friend of mine who is a retired NFL player. He really knew a lot about both teams.

But I can’t get those Augustus shakin and bakin crossover moves out of my head. How did she do that??
