Former Huskies Moore, Montgomery looking to capture WNBA title
06 October, 2017, 00:37
The Sparks and Lynx went five games previous year before Los Angeles won on a last-second put-back from Ogwumike.
After losing to Los Angeles in last year's WNBA Finals and almost blowing a double-digit fourth-quarter lead, the Minnesota Lynx held on to capture their fourth championship in seven years, with an 85-76 Game 5 victory over the Los Angeles Sparks.
"We just wanted to prove that we still got it, that we've still got a little bit of juice left in the tank", Augustus said.
-Here's one final pre-game quote from Maya Moore: "It's so special to be able to have home court advantage, to be able to have a shot at achieving our goal in front of our fans". Brunson also bounced back from a rough performance in Game 1, in which she logged just 16 minutes.
Augustus didn't turn in her best shooting performance in Game 4, but her contributions were impactful. The telecast averaged a 0.9 in the Los Angeles market.
Ahead of Game 2, Sparks guard Essence Carson said that people had forgotten what sports stars' protests - be it men and women - were reallyu about.
"That haunted me for a long time after Game 5 a year ago", Fowles said. After a loss in Game 3 at Staples Center, the Lynx forced a Game 5 with an 80-69 win at Staples Center last Sunday.
This year, the 6-5 center wasn't going to allow rebounds to be the problem, grabbing a WNBA Finals record 20 rebounds to go with 17 points and 4 assists.

Maya Moore had 18 points and ten rebounds as the Lynx pulled away in the fourth quarter to secure the franchise's fourth title in seven years.
Since high school, Moore has never gone consecutive years without winning a championship, a streak that was on the line Wednesday.
The Minnesota Lynx are champions once again.
"I wasn't nervous at all at the end", Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve sarcastically told ESPN through a laugh. "Everyone wants to talk about who scores, but it's those plays in those moments that win a game for you". Fowles finished with 17 points, but all five Minnesota starters scored at least 13 points. If the Sparks leave Brunson open, Minnesota needs her to knock down shots.
The game the Lynx rule now is bigger, faster and deeper and the proud core of Moore, Rebekkah Brunson, Augustus and Whalen have had to earn everything they've accomplished. "Last year didn't work out for us but we knew we'd be back here, we knew the entire regular season that we'd be here at the end and this is what we were working towards". "It hasn't been easy, it's been extremely difficult and we know how hard you have to work to get here".
"We were right there at halftime, then they sort of extended their lead, and we hung around", said Sparks coach Brian Agler, who was whistled for a technical foul in the second quarter.
"We had all those turnovers at the end and they nearly came back", she said. "We needed every one of those 20. People are just admiring our game at this point and everyone is tuning in to see what's happening".
"It's brought attention to a lot of things", Parker said. "That hurt. Obviously it hurt not having her [Nneka Ogwumike] in the game. It seems like the WNBA wanted five games, and they got it". "We need to do a better job in the offseason of trying to figure out how to draw contact". "I think that's something that I have to do in the off-season is drawing contact so I can get the call".
