Since 2011, the Lynx haven’t lost a game in the month of May. That’s 22 straight games including the 82-68 win over the Connecticut Sun. The Lynx are now 5-0 for the season, the only unbeaten team in the WNBA.
Minnesota Head Coach Cheryl Reeve commented: ”We just find it incredibly important that when our season starts in game one that we come out and play in a way that we’re striving for greatness,” she said. ”We don’t want to take our time and evolve as a team. We know we’ll get better each game. We have a mindset when we come out that we want to position ourselves early. It’s like a runner in a race, you want to position yourself early.”
For the Lynx, Sylvia Fowles led all scorers with 20 points, followed by Rebekkah Brunson and Renee Montgomery each with 11 points.
For the Sun, Lynetta Kizer was the top scorer with 12 points.
