Lynx rally past Connecticut for victory in season opener
July 27, 2020
This was pretty much uncharted territory for Sylvia Fowles.
We're not talking about on the court. What she did for the Minnesota Lynx Sunday in the 2020 WNBA opener inside the "bubble" at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., was vintage Fowles: Seventeen points on 7-for-11 shooting, 18 rebounds - tied with Rebekkah Brunson (2015) for most by a Lynx player on opening day - and four blocks.
But it was what she did behind the scenes that might have pushed the Lynx to an impressive, come-from-behind 77-69 victory over Connecticut.
