The WNBA playoffs have approached the Finals this week. The Minnesota Lynx enter the Finals in hopes of making history and winning their fourth title in the last seven years. They took home the 3-0 series sweep after defeating the Washington Mystics 81-70 this past Sunday. Minnesota is known to be one of the best franchises in WNBA history. Its accolades are made up of three championships and six finals appearances over the last seven years. A repeat of last year could take place if the Los Angeles Sparks knock off the Lynx for a second straight season. The Sparks defeated the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday to sweep their way into a second straight Finals. With only four losing seasons in their 20-year history, Los Angeles is ready for the showdown.
