Instant classic.

Game 1 of the WNBA Finals can be summed up in those two words after Los Angeles and Minnesota put fans on an exciting roller coaster Sunday afternoon. The Lynx had erased a double-digit hole to take its first lead of the game with under a minute left in the contest.

From there the game went back and forth with players hitting clutch shots, yet none were bigger than this game-winner by the Sparks’ Chelsea Gray.

From there, the internet went OFF on what they just witnessed.

Actress Vivica A. Fox was locked in the entire game as her timeline was filled with Tweets supporting LA, especially after winning.

Known for his role on Modern Family, Rico Rodriguez was another star engaged in the game.

The NBA’s Evan Turner (Portland Trailblazers) and Shareef Abdur-Rahim, might have said it best:

But, you can’t talk about the reactions of others on the internet without seeing what other current and former WNBA players have to say, like Seattle’s Alysha Clark and Crystal Langhorne and Monique Currie from Phoenix.

WNBA legend, Tina Thompson was on Twitter and Instagram informing her followers how great of a game they were missing and what she felt about Gray’s shot.

If you're not watching the 2017 WNBA Finals!!!!!!! You are absolutely MISSING OUT!!!!!!! #theyarehooping

Even National Champion head Coach Dawn Staley tuned in Sunday afternoon.

Owner of the Sparks, Earvin “Magic” Johnson definitely had praise for his team who is now two games closer to clinching another championship.
