Lynx update: Since the league went to a best-of-five championship series format in 2005, only one team — Seattle in 2010 — has gone undefeated in the playoffs. The Lynx could become the second. They have shot 71-for-135 (52.6 percent) in the first two games of this series. On Tuesday, all five starters scored in double figures and had at least three assists. Four of those starters shot 50 percent or better. G Seimone Augustus has 39 points in the two games, F Maya Moore 37, G Monica Wright 26. F Rebekkah Brunson had a double-double Tuesday. She and C Janel McCarville combined for 23 points, 17 rebounds and eight assists in Game 2.

Dream update: Going to a bigger lineup didn’t help Atlanta on Tuesday. The Dream is struggling mightily with its shot, going just 3-for-25 from three-point range combined in the first two games of the series. F Angel McCoughtry is 11-for-42 overall while averaging 16 points in the finals. Atlanta is 0-8 in three trips to the finals in four seasons. This game is being played at the Arena at Gwinnett Center because of a scheduling conflict at Philips Arena. Atlanta was 13-4 at home, 4-13 on the road in the regular season.
