For at least one night the Tulsa Shock looked like the best team in the Western Conference and the Lynx, frankly, looked a little lost defensively.
In Tulsa’s victory at Target Center on Sunday, the Shock dictated the action thanks to guards Skylar Diggins and Riquna Williams, who took Lynx defenders off the dribble all night.
Here are some thoughts on the Lynx’s home loss:
--She says she feels OK, but Lindsay Whalen just doesn’t look like herself. Before this season, she had failed to get an assist in a game only once during her time with the Lynx. Now she’s done it in consecutive games.
--Maya Moore continues to struggle with her shooting. She scored 16 points tonight but was 5-for-14. She is shooting under 38 percent this season.
--If not for Damiris Dantas, the Lynx would have gotten pretty much nothing from their bench. But Dantas played well, at least on offense, hitting six of seven shots for 15 points.
--Rebekkah Brunson battled tonight, getting 18 points and grabbing nine rebounds. But everyone in the post for the Lynx tonight struggled at times on defense.
--The Lynx will take Monday off, then return to practice Tuesday to prepare for Thursday’s game at Seattle.
That’s about it for now. Have a good week.
