Chelsea Gray gives Sparks thrilling Game 1 victory over Lynx

FAGBENLE GETS WNBA FINALS SHOT

WNBA players join NFL protest by skipping national anthem

The 2015 WNBA champions fought their way back into the game, but every time it seemed like the Lynx were going to close the game Gray had an answer.

Tonight's Minnesota Lynx vs. Los Angeles Sparks game is scheduled for a 7 p.m.

Gray had the hot hand all game, finishing with 27 points on 10-of-16 shooting, including 4-of-8 from beyond the arc.

Gray's pull-up jumper with 2 seconds delivered an 85-84 victory on Sunday over the Minnesota Lynx in the kind of edge-of-your-seat finish that no one saw coming when the Sparks led 28-2 in the first quarter.

Game two, expect an aggressive Seimone Augustus, another dominant performance from Sylvia Fowles, and more contribution from the bench.

"I know everybody is going to talk about what a great comeback it was, et cetera ... but that's not the world we live in", said Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve.

Long before multiple NFL teams finally started to participate in national anthem protests, WNBA players were doing it in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. "That means absolutely nothing to us". Here's the latest Lynx vs. Sparks game preview including matchup odds, game time, channel and #live streaming options.

The game was similar to Game 1 of the finals previous year, when Alana Beard hit a buzzer-beater to give the Sparks the road victory and the 1-0 series lead.

The Lynx started chipping away, trimming the deficit to 10 points at halftime and getting Parker, Ogwumike and Alana Beard into foul trouble. She used an escape dribble to create a little daylight, and her high-arching jumper splashed through. The #Los Angeles Sparks will host the Minnesota Lynx at the Staples Center with national television coverage of the game.

On Sunday night, the WNBA's top two teams will battle on the hardwood for a final #Regular Season meeting. It looked like the Sparks were in good shape to steal Game 1 on the road.
