"We've prepared for her," Brunson said. "We really didn't gear on the fact that she wasn't going to be there (for Game 1) and forget her because she is a very important piece to their team. But it did open up the middle a little bit."
"We are disappointed with yesterday," Minnesota forward Rebekkah Brunson said. "That is done and over with. We can't do anything about that. We have to be optimistic about tomorrow and being able to do what we have to do. We haven't lost any confidence we still know what we are capable of doing. So we are just going to step on the court tomorrow and prove it."
