Most had written the Lynx off after Seimone Augustus went down for the year with a torn ACL in a June 17 road defeat to Phoenix. One Mercury player even added insult to injury, bragging to a few Lynx players that "they had broken us," according to coach Jen Gillom. "[It] was not taken well." Minnesota exacted sweet revenge last Saturday when Candice Wiggins (pictured) and Roneeka Hodges each scored 22 points in a 109-80 victory that vaulted them ahead of the Mercury in the West standings. Counting Tuesday night's 92-85 win at Atlanta, the Lynx are 3-1 since Augustus went down.
