The Minnesota Lynx and Las Vegas Aces face off in their ninth game of the WNBA season inside the bubble at IMG Academy on Wednesday.
The Minnesota Lynx had some questions heading into this season but they have found a whole lot of success.On the season the Lynx have only lost two games, and those were against the Seattle Storm, and Los Angeles Sparks, two teams who have been good. In the Lynx’s last game against the Washington Mystics the defense was elite putting up only 48 points and that led to a blowout victory. On the season the Lynx are averaging 79 points per game while giving up 75 points.
The Lynx best player this season has been Sylvia Fowles who is averaging 16.7 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. In this game the Lynx need that defense to be good and lockdown, something that will make life tough on the Aces offense.
On the other side of this matchup is the Las Vegas Aces who are playing really well coming into this game having won five games in a row. In the last game the Aces played a dominant game winning over the Indiana Fever 98-79. In the Aces last game it was Angel McCoughtry’who put up 20 points, two assists, and one rebound. On the season the Aces are averaging 88.1 points while giving up 80.5 points per game.
The best player for this squad is A’Ja Wilson who is averaging 21 points and 9.1 rebounds per game. McCoughtry has also been good this year averaging 15.3 points per game and she is also shooting 54.5 percent from the field.
These are two good teams that have been good, and it’s going to be a competitive battle. Fowles is going to have a big game and that will be enough for the Lynx to come away with a victory.
