The Minnesota Lynx had their full lineup healthy for the first time all year, as Seimone Augustus returned from an eight game absence with knee bursitis. They beat the San Antonio Silver Stars 88-78 at Target Center, as all five starters (as well as Monica Wright off the bench) were in double figures. Augustus led the way with 17. The return of health coincides with one of the better bench performances of the season, as the reserves, Damiris Dantas, Dev Peters, and Wright, produced 24 points. Hopefully that sort of balance and production can continue as we head toward the business end of the season.
Yesterday was another day of Love madness, with various rumors swirling. Flip Saunders was on KFAN with Dan Barreiro yesterday and made the following points:
- There is no deal in place.
- He talks to teams everyday.
- He has had no conversations about trading Kevin Martin or Gorgui Dieng
- He thinks Dieng can play next to Pekovic, though spacing is problematic
