A look at the WNBA Fi­nals matchup

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

All sea­son long the Min­nesota Lynx and Los An­ge­les Sparks have been the best two teams in the WNBA.

Thanks to the new play­off for­mat, the pair of West­ern Con­fer­ence teams will meet in the WNBA Fi­nals.

A year ago these two pow­er­houses would have played in the con­fer­ence fi­nals with the win­ner be­ing a huge fa­vorite to go on and win the cham­pi­onship. The West­ern Con­fer­ence cham­pion has won the league’s ti­tle in six of the last seven years.

A vic­tory by Min­nesota and the Lynx will have won four of the last six cham­pi­onships, in­clud­ing two straight.

They’d be the first re­peat cham­pion since Los An­ge­les did it in 2001 and 2002.

A win by the Sparks would be their first ti­tle since then and the first for Can­dace Parker.
