During that span, the Lynx are shooting 48.4 percent from the field and 40.6 percent from three. The Dallas Wings are also a good offensive team, but they play at such a fast pace that they allow a ton of points and struggle against the better clubs in the league. The Lynx have also won 10 straight against the Wings. I'll lay the bucket with the better, hotter team.
