The Lynx are not practicing today, so there will be no on-court update. But a quick look at the WNBA statistics shows just how dominant the team's 2-0 start has been. For example:
--Lynx forward Maya Moore is leading the league in scoring in the early going with a 24.0 average. Seimone Augustus (19.5) is sixth.
--Rebekkah Brunson is tied for ninth in rebounds per game (7.0).
--Lindsay Whalen is second in assists per game (7.0).
--Amber Harris is seventh in the league in blocks per game (2.0).
What makes this more impressive is that none of the Lynx starters has played a ton of minutes because of the one-sided nature of both of their wins. Brunson has averaged 20.6 minutes per game so far, Whalen 22.5, Augustus 27.0 and Moore 27.5
