GIQ WNBA Summary — San Antonio Silver Stars 84, Minnesota Lynx 82 (2 OT)

by Frisco Del Rosario on September 2, 2009

With two weeks remaining in the WNBA season, all five games on the Tuesday schedule had significant playoff implications.

For the host Silver Stars and the Lynx, it might as well have been a one-game playoff. Tied at 12-17 for the last playoff spot in the West, the teams provided the tensest playoff atmosphere, fighting through two overtimes.

Becky Hammon scored 29 points, including a free throw to ice it in the second OT.

If one took the over on the 164 total, they didn’t hit 165 until 10 seconds were left in the second OT.

San Antonio has the worst record ATS in the West, and failed Tuesday to cover -4.5.

The Lynx have lost 13 of 16 SU, and are 5-10 ATS since 7/15.
