Reeve: Lynx are ready for Western Conference showdown

 The Lynx are urging their fans to do a white-out for tonight’s game with the L.A. Sparks. It will be interesting to see how big the crowd is for this very important game, and how many got the white-out message.

Coach Cheryl Reeve just got done doing her pre-game meeting with the media. She said she thinks her team is very aware of the importance of this game. “The magnitude of this game is not lost on them,” she said. “Nor is it lost on the folks in purple and yellow (the Sparks). I think we’re excited. We’re at home, we had two days of practice, I think we’re ready to play.”

As we reported earlier, Maya Moore was named Western Conference Player of the Month for August today. It will be interesting to see how she responds; Moore has scored 65 points in her last two home games.

I’ll get back to you after the game. One, by the way, that I expect to be much closer than the first three games between these two teams.
