Lynx survive frantic final minutes in Los Angeles, force Game 5 in WNBA Finals - Oct 17, 2016

Maya Moore
Long before the frantic final minutes, Maya Moore (6'0''-SG-89, college: Connecticut) knew what she was going to see in Sunday's Game 4 of the WNBA Finals. As the Lynx forward always does, she looked into the eyes of her teammates in the first quarter - and saw a group ready to scrap to the end against Los Angeles. 'I knew we were going to fight,'' Moore said. 'If we were going down, we were going down fighting.'' Two days after taking a staggering punch from the Sparks, the Lynx answered with a big blow of their own to send the series to a deciding Game 5. They outlasted Los Angeles 85-79 in a bruising, raw and nerve-fraying game at Staples Center, tying the best-of-five series 2-2. The Lynx reversed form completely from their lackluster Game 3, giving themselves a chance to play for a second consecutive WNBA title Thursday at Target Center. Moore provided many of the theatrics in a marvelous all-around performance, with 31 points, nine rebounds, five assists and three steals. She scored 18 in the second half and helped the Lynx repel three late rallies by the Sparks. But it was the Lynx's teamwork, Moore said, that carried the day. Their collective defense held Sparks star Nneka Ogwumike (6'3''-F/C-90, college: Stanford) to 11 points, including only four in the second half, and they outrebounded the Sparks 41-25. Lindsay Whalen (5'9''-PG-82, college: Minnesota) contributed 13 points and six rebounds, Sylvia Fowles (6'6''-C-85, college: LSU) snared 13 rebounds and Rebekkah Brunson (6'3''-F/C-81, college: Georgetown, agency: LBM Management) hit two free throws with 12.5 seconds left after she stole the ball from Candace Parker (6'4''-C/F-86, college: Tennessee) and drew a foul. The Lynx responded exactly as Moore hoped they would after a 17-point drubbing in Game 3. Before Sunday's game, the WNBA championship trophy was displayed at center court, polished and ready for presentation. Moore and her teammates ensured that will not happen until Thursday in Minneapolis.
