“I knew we were going to fight,’’ Maya, 27, said after game four at LA’s Staples Center. “If we were going down, we were going down fighting.” The league’s premiere player continued “Any way that I can help my team, whether it’s getting offensive rebounds or getting steals, all those things create momentum and create rhythm for me.” She put up 31 points and 9 rebounds to help the Lynx conquer the Sparks 85-79 in game four Oct. 16, forcing the fifth and deciding game.
“This is what a Finals game should look like,’’ Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said after game four, adding, “Both teams left it all out on the floor.” She continued “We needed every bit of what Maya did. It wasn’t easy. I thought she was more persistent in finding opportunities to score. Obviously, it was huge.’’
The Lynx are looking to defend their title as WNBA champs after their huge victory in 2015. Sadly, their number one fan Prince won’t be around to cheer the ladies on like he did last year. The late singer was so proud of them he threw the team a victory party afterwards at his Paisley Park estate. We’re sure some of the Purple One’s spirit will be on hand to give the team a lift!
