For the Lynx to beat Phoenix on Tuesday, coach Cheryl Reeve figured one part of their game would have to improve and another had to hold steady.
Fowles got back to her consistent play down low, finishing with 14 points and 10 rebounds, and the Lynx held Phoenix stars Brittney Griner and Diana Taurasi in check.
Late Monday night, reports from Sky Sports Italy and other European media said Zandalasini would be joining the Lynx for the playoffs, citing an announcement from the Italian Basketball Federation.
Though injuries to starters Lindsay Whalen and Rebekkah Brunson had reduced the Lynx roster to nine healthy players, Reeve said last Friday the team would “stand pat’’ with that group, then said Monday nothing had changed.
Lucas Duda and Corey Dickerson homered in the first two innings and Chris Archer struck out 10 for the Tampa Bay Rays in a 6-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night.
