Lin Dunn introduces the Indianapolis Fever at a WNBA championship celebration, including Karima "Off the Bench" Christmas, "Hot Hands" Zellous, "What Would We Do Without Her" Erin Phillips, "Get Out of My Way" Larkins, and Tamika "I Do It All" Catchings. She also describes what Indiana did to Atlanta, Connecticut, and Minnosota on the boards. (Hint: it rhymes with "kicked their glass.")
One of the first things that stood out throughout the series and in this video: the Indiana Fever were quite adept at beating the Minnesota Lynx off the dribble.
It was a team effort for the Indiana Fever to win the 2012 WNBA title, but can they repeat as champions if they return their core group of players?

After spending a couple of days looking at how the Indiana Fever won Game One of the 2012 WNBA Finals, today we look at the defending champion Minnesota Lynx who will try to even the series at one apiece before heading to Indianapolis for Games Three

Indiana Fever forward Erlana Larkins tied the record for second-most rebounds in a WNBA Finals game in a surprising Game One win against the Minnesota Lynx. However, it's another rebounding record that she tied, which was even more significant.
