The Lynx dominated game one of this series, showing no rust from their layoff and cruising to a 20 point win, making the Mystics look outmatched in the process. It helps, of course, when you make 12-17 from three, something the home team probably can’t count on again.

Still, they are the clear favorites, and will look to take command of the series tonight before heading to Washington. The Mystics simply don’t seem able to keep up with all of the weapons at the Lynx disposal, and if it’s not Sylvia Fowles inside, it’s Seimone Augustus or Maya Moore on the perimeter.

Washington needs more from their stars—Elena Delle Donne, Emma Meesseman, and Kristi Toliver—to keep them in this, and they will certainly look to turn around the three point shooting advantage the Lynx had in game one, as they are the highest volume three point shooting team in the league.
