After winning the WNBA championship in 2011, the Minnesota Lynx begin a fresh season determined to pounce on the Western Conference rival Phoenix Mercury. Now in her third year at the helm, head coach Cheryl Reeve leads a star-studded Lynx roster, including former first-round pick Seimone Augustus, whose explosive style of play puts to shame imitators who hide firecrackers in referees’ shoes. 2011 Rookie of the Year Maya Moore anchors a sturdy frontcourt alongside fellow forward and consistent double-double machine Rebekkah Brunson, and veteran guard Lindsay Whalen energizes the offense, dishing out assists and espresso shots as she speeds through the zone.
Across the court, perennial all-star Diana Taurasi and the Mercury seek revenge for last season’s conference finals, when the Lynx extinguished their title hopes with a resounding sweep. Between rhythmic dribbles and nothing-but-net swishes, fans can slam-dunk hot dogs and popcorn from one of the Target Center’s 20 concession stands (not included with this Groupon) or track down mascot Prowl and challenge him to an unwinnable staring contest.
