Lynx game postponed as WNBA joins NBA strike
August 27, 2020
On Tuesday, two days after the shooting of Jacob Blake by police in Kenosha, Wis., Cheryl Reeve was asked if she was conflicted about holding games in Florida while larger issues raged around the country.
"I know it's crossed all our minds," the Lynx coach and general manager said. "We're going, 'What are we doing here?' "
Reeve woke up Wednesday thinking her team might not be playing that night even though there was a game against Los Angeles on the schedule. It turns out she was right - and the Lynx were hardly alone.
