I'm torn between taking Atlanta first half and Minnesota game. It's hard to see Atlanta actually having the edge late in a game against a team as organized as the Lynx. Too much one on one. Not enough offensive execution.
I wouldn't be surprised one bit if there is a lot of home cooking to ensure this series goes at least 4 games. Most likely, it will happen in the first half, otherwise it's going to be too obvious what mr. stern and the league are up to.
But late in a game, with adequate refereeing, it's oh-so-hard to bet against the Lynx. Especially with what they've done to Atlanta in all four games this year. I mean, 3rd and 4th quarter point differential:
12 -1 (won by 11) in Min
11 -8 (won by 13) in Atl
3 11 (won by 14) game 1
3 14 (won by 6) game 2
The Lynx won every third quarter these two teams played, and two of four fourth quarters (notice they didn't win the fourth quarters only during RS games, when they 'didn't need to win' them to secure a W)
