Sunday's Game 4 Lynx-Los Angeles game recap

For the second year a in a row, the Sparks were unable to closeout the finals at home.

"Honestly, Game 4 previous year is a blur", she said.

Lynx outrebounded the Sparks 48-28, which was a turn around from game three when Los Angeles had been far more physical inside. Last year, the Sparks won Game 5 on the road and will have one more chance to win back-to-back titles. Despite the similarities to last year's series, Sparks center Nneka Ogwumike was exhausted of the comparisons.

"I mean you learn so many lessons", she said. "I think right now there's a lot of emotions going on, but we can't dwell there". Maya Moore scored 15 points and had eight rebounds while Seimone Augustus added 10 points to go with eight rebounds for the winning team.

Before tipoff the Sparks went into their locker room during the playing of the United States national anthem in silent protest for the fourth consecutive game. The Minnesota Lynx scored just eight points in the first quarter of Game 3, tying for fewest first-quarter points in Finals history. The forward tallied 18 points, 13 rebounds and two steals while making numerous hustle plays to help keep the team ahead.

Of course, the Sparks were obviously not going to go away without a fight.

The Lynx dominated inside the paint and out-rebounding the Sparks 26-14 in the first half.

Ogwumike said the Sparks are a bit more business-like heading into this year's Game 4 than they were a year ago. Discounting Odyssey Sims, who shot 4-for-7 from long distance, the rest of the team was 1-for-15.

Brunson and the Lynx both delivered a truly must-win Game 4 victory.

"A bit, but not so serious because to me when you take things way to seriously you become too tense", she said. I'm not trying to test their ability to hit three's. No other Sparks players managed to finish in double-digits with the bench adding just seven points in the losing effort. This entire WNBA season has seemed so much like last season, with the Minnesota Lynx and Los Angeles Sparks finishing 1-2 in the WNBA standings and advancing to the WNBA Finals.

She did so mostly with her energy that suggested the 35-year-old who already owns four WNBA championship rings is still in line for a fifth now that the Lynx have forced a deciding game Wednesday at Williams Arena. The two teams also combined for 31 turnovers in the game with the Lynx having more than half of those. The Lynx stood traditionally. And we did it well for two games, except for the first eight minutes of Game 1.
