After winning last year’s WNBA Championship, and three of the last five, could the Minnesota Lynx be an even better team this year?
Last night the Minnesota Lynx beat their 2015 WNBA Championship opponent, the Indiana Fever, 87-63 in route to set the WNBA record for consecutive wins to open a season. The team is playing with a lot of confidence.
Cheryl Reeve has done an amazing job with this team since she has taken over. With the Lynx first six head coaches win/loss total being 152-214(.415), and the record under Reeve is 151-64(.702).
Coach Reeve is impressed with her team and their overall approach this season. They are running over teams. Last night in winning their eleventh straight game, they broke the WNBA record set by themselves in 2012.

"“I told our team I was just impressed,” Reeve said. “We had an outstanding practice [Monday} and really focused and [had] a hunger for what we were talking about with some of our shortcomings over the weekend. I like this mindset of wanting to do better.”“That’s one thing that’s really impressed me with this group is that we have great players that have done great things, but they still want to be coached and want to be pushed.”"
With the Lynx playing with swagger, they will play the Seattle Storm next, but the matchup everyone is looking forward to is next week’s back to back games with the also undefeated Los Angeles Sparks. As of last night, the Sparks are 9-0. It will be interesting to see if both teams will still be undefeated when they play back to back games.
The way these women are playing, do not expect them to slow down anytime soon. They will most definitely be in contention for another WNBA title later this year with Maya Moore in contention for another WNBA MVP award.
