WNBA Playoffs 2012
This stream has:
The Minnesota Lynx enter the WNBA Finals trying to become the third team in WNBA history to win back-to-back championships. In their way is the Indiana Fever, a franchise that is trying to win their first WNBA title.
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.")
I'll have my final breakdown of the WNBA season up later today, but for now a brief roundup of a few reactions from Twitter congratulating the Indiana Fever, Tamika Catchings, and coach Lin Dunn on winning the 2012 WNBA Finals.
It's probably fair to say that nobody expected the Indiana Fever to deny the Minnesota Lynx a second consecutive title. Not only did they accomplish the feat, but they did so in convincing fashion: winning the series 3-1 with an impressive 87-78 win.
After yet another slow start, the Minnesota Lynx got back to their strengths with a record-setting rebounding effort to defeat the visiting Indiana Fever in Game Two of the 2012 WNBA Finals.
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
Injured Indiana Fever guard Katie Douglas remains doubtful for Game Two of the 2012 WNBA Finals after missing Game One due to an ankle injury suffered in the Eastern Conference Finals. But how have the Fever won without their star shooter?
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.
Unfortunately, I had to watch another conference finals game on DVR and was actually eager to see how on earth the Indiana Fever beat the Connecticut Sun in such dominant fashion after I heard that Katie Douglas left the game on a stretcher.
Will the experience of Catchings and Douglas prevail, or reigning MVP Tina Charles, Sixth Woman Renee Montgomery, and the "Real" MIP, Kara Lawson see their team in the Finals?

The Minnesota Lynx are heading back to the WNBA Finals after another win that came down to getting a defensive stop on the last possession. The Indiana Fever will join them, making their second Finals appearance in the last four years.
Can Katie Douglas get more offensive support at home from her teammates? Doing so may extend this series to three games.
18 points and 15 rebounds from Tina Charles powered Connecticut to a 76-62 Game 2 win over Indiana. Katie Douglas led the Fever with 27 points. For freebies, things that rock, large shoulder chips, and more, join your intrepid blogger.
Can the Sun return to its first Finals since 2005 when Lindsay Whalen was running the show? Or can the Fever get to its first Finals since 2009?
The Connecticut Sun and Indiana Fever meet in the 2012 WNBA Eastern Conference Finals after the Sun won the regular season series 3-1. In a battle of the last two league MVPs, the thing to watch might be what their supporting cast members can do.
With the #1 picks of the 2011 and 2012 Drafts facing off against each other, which team will end up victorious for this game and this series?
The Los Angeles Sparks and Minnesota Lynx meet in the Western Conference Finals after splitting their regular season series (2-2). For the second series in a row for the Lynx, point guard play figures to be a significant determining factor in the ser
Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals between the Minnesota Lynx and Seattle Storm was the kind of classic basketball masterpiece that you hope for in the playoffs and takes a while to fully digest. But can the Storm finish the job in Game Thre
