Bounce-back needed

The Minnesota Lynx looked every bit the favorite to win the WNBA title in their commanding 84-59 victory over the Atlanta Dream in Sunday’s opener. They have home-court advantage in the championship round for a third straight year pursuing their second title in that span. They used balance, depth and strength at both ends of the floor to overwhelm the Dream in Game 1 with the second-largest margin in WNBA Finals history. This doesn’t mean this best-of-5 series is over, though. The Lynx expect a different opponent in Game 2 tonight ( 5 p.m., ESPN2) and the Dream defiantly vowed they’d bounce back. – AP
