Marilyn Indahl-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Indiana Fever drew first blood in Game 1 of the 2012 Finals against the Minnesota Lynx, winning 76-70, headlined by by Erlana Larkins' 16 points, 15 rebounds, and 3 assists. Tamika Catchings added 20 points, 6 rebounds, 4 blocks, and 3 steals in another one of her trademark all-around performances. For the Lynx, Seimone Augustus led the way with 23 points and 6 rebounds. Today the Fever tries to get the home team on the brink of elimination in Game 2, which is on ESPN (not ESPN 2), at 8:00 PM EDT.

League Blog on the Finals | Game Preview | Erlana Larkins is a rebounding machine | From the Pioneer Press: The Lynx weren't themselves | The Hartford Courant says the Fever "Shocked" the Lynx... I think that only qualifies if the Mystics or the Shock won a game against them.

I wasn't surprised that the Fever would win a game in the Finals, but I was surprised that they won with a strong first and stronger fourth quarters in the way that they did.

I hardly expect this game to be more of the same. As I have said before in playoff series games, the emotions are highers, and it's not surprising to see one team win one game convincingly, and lose the next just as badly. If anything, I won't be surprised to see the Lynx pounce on the Fever like some of the lynx pictures we put in the comments hunting rabbits and other prey

So enjoy the game, and here's to hoping for another entertaining game in this series.
