It’s Game 3 tonight of this 2012 WNBA Finals between the Minnesota Lynx and the Indiana Fever. The tip off is set for 8:00 PM ET in Indy’s Bankers Life Fieldhouse and you can tune in to view all of the action on ESPN2.
The series is tied at one win apiece after it appears Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve’s jacket-throwing tantrum, aimed at the officials on Wednesday night, may have served the purpose of sparking her team to an 83-71 victory. Fever coach, Lin Dunn was none too pleased at the tactic calling it a “lack of respect.” ESPN is reporting that the WNBA has fined Reeve for the incident.
