"It challenges your mental more than your physical," Lynx guard Seimone Augustus said. "We all want to get to this point in our career where we're playing in a Game 5 and playing for a championship. This is what we always talk about. College, high school, pro, this is what we live for as athletes."
"I've got to be more aggressive," Augustus said. "I've got to get the ball. I can't shoot air. Our offense was very stagnant. Didn't execute the way we wanted to, so it created a lot of one-on-one situations for everything. Forces Sylvia to have to score with two people guarding her. Forces Maya to have to take contested shots. When we are efficiently flowing in our offense, I feel like no team can guard us. I wasn't able to get as many touches because of how out of sync we were."
