Lynx look strong but wary of bounce back by Dream

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Lynx looked every bit the favorite to win the WNBA title in their commanding victory over the Atlanta Dream in the opener.

They have home-court advantage in the championship round for a third straight year. This is a proud, confident and determined bunch pursuing their second title in that span. They used balance, depth and strength at both ends of the floor to overwhelm the Dream 84-59 in Game 1 on Sunday night. That was the second-largest margin in WNBA Finals history.

This doesn't mean this best-of-five series is sewn up, though. The Lynx are expecting a different opponent in Game 2 on Tuesday night. The Dream, too, defiantly vowed they'd bounce back from their poor shooting performance.
