Indiana Fever discomfit Minnesota Lynx in Game Three of the 2012 WNBA Finals

At one point in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals, the Indiana Fever were up 70-33 on the defending champion Minnesota Lynx in the third quarter.

And it's really hard to put exactly what happened tonight in Indianapolis into words. What we do know is this: with the win, the Fever take a 2-1 lead over the Lynx and can win a franchise-first WNBA title with a win in Game 4, also in Indianapolis.

Even those who believed the Fever would win probably did not expect things to go quite the way they have: winning Game 1 on the road and then blowing out the Lynx at home.

Very, very impressive display of basketball from the Fever thus far.

Feel free to leave your thoughts and post-game analysis in the comments while we figure out how to wrap our heads around this outcome.
