Lynx season ends abruptly with playoff loss to Chicago
September 27, 2021
The Minnesota Lynx's playoff run ended abruptly Sunday at Target Center.
In a single-elimination second-round game, the Chicago Sky advanced to the WNBA semifinals with an 89-78 victory over the third-seeded Lynx.
Sudden as it was, it was not a fluke. The Sky – which advanced to the game with a first-round win over Dallas – was able to get good shots most of the game against the Minnesota defense. The Sky shot 49.2 percent overall – 63.4 percent on two-pointers.
