San Antonio at Minnesota

2 units on San Antonio +9 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: WIN

San Antonio has been a mystery. This team was by far the best looking team to open the season, as they averaged over 90 points per game and were off to a 7-1 start. Somewhere along the line they lost their way, but the fact that they showed the level they were capable of early, may manifest itself once again in the playoffs. Minnesota has clearly been the best team in the WNBA, but that doesn't guarantee playoffs success. When facing a team with a winning record at the time they played them, the Lynx have won just three of the eight by more than 10 points at home, but lost three of the games outright. San Antonio played them tough here losing by 2 and 10 points in the two meetings this season. This is too many points in a playoff game, so I'm taking San Antonio here.
