Games 1 and 2 of the WNBA Finals were about as close as they could get, and Game 3 back in Los Angeles could be more of the same with the series tied 1-1. Lynx at Sparks, 8 p.m., ESPN2.
“Paul Molitor — take a lesson from Ron Gardenhire. Whenever the Twins would clinch a playoff spot, Gardenhire would give players plenty of time off to rest before playoffs. Game comes along and they play like they haven’t seen a ball field before.”
