Inevitably, someone was going to bring up the fatigue factor when discussing the WNBA Western Conference Finals matchup between the Los Angeles Sparks and defending champion Minnesota Lynx.
While the Sparks have played only two games in 13 days and been resting since finishing their first round series against the San Antonio Silver Stars with a two-game sweep, the Lynx just finished a physical three game series against the Seattle Storm on Tuesday.
I'll go with Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve's response to this matter, as quoted by ESPN's Mechelle Voepel.
Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve said she would be "very disappointed" if fatigue was a factor for her team in the series.
"At this point, you're playing on adrenaline," Reeve said. "The 'fatigue' word is for losers."
