Thursday Night Open Thread: The Minnesota Lynx Host The L.A. Sparks At 8 EDT

New, 9 comments

Who: Minnesota Lynx vs. Los Angeles Sparks

When: 8 p.m. EDT on WNBA LiveAccess

Where: Target Center - Minneapolis, MN

What: The first meeting between two teams that have started off 2-0 and look to be the class of the Western Conference early-on. Neither team is really where they want to be, but the Sparks' defensive intensity is much-improved since last season. If there is one early-season game that should persuade you to suck it up and pay the $5 for LiveAccess, this one might be it.
