Lynx pregame: Reeve talks about the game, the MVP

Posted by: Kent Youngblood Updated: September 20, 2013 - 7:21 PM

I'm writing this at halftime of the Chicago-Indiana game, which the Fever leads by 13. Just further proof that regular season records don't mean much when it comes to the playoffs. Last night Los Angeles and Atlanta, both higher seeds, lost at home in their first playoff games.

Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve wants to make sure that doesn't happen against Seattle tonight at Target Center.

"Upset city doesn't live here," Reeve said before the game, on her 47th birthday. "That's been the message.''

You'd think there would be no secrets between these two teams, considering they played each other three times down the stretch. But Reeve said the Lynx had added "some stuff,'' for this series. It will be interesting to see what that is.

Here is some of what Reeve had to say:

--On Maya Moore getting edged for MVP by L.A.'s Candace Parker: "It's no surprise the award went out west to an L.A. player," she said. "(Parker) has had a tremendous summer as well. I'm glad it's done and over with, so we can stop talking about it. ... The MVP we want is the one when we're standing on the podium together as a team, accepting on behalf of the team. That means we won the finals."

--On Brunson being named to the league's all defensive team second team: "She's been a big key for us," Reeve said. "I'd put her on the first team if I had anything to say about it."

I'll get back to you after the game.
