MINNEAPOLIS -- Los Angeles Sparks coach Brian Agler had just finished with a split in the first two games of the WNBA Finals in Minnesota and was asked about his feeling heading back home for two games. Caris LeVert Nets Jersey .The home-court advantage in the series had seemingly flipped in Los Angeles favor when the Sparks took Game 1 with a buzzer-beating, game-winning shot by 12-year veteran Alana Beard. Following the Game 2 loss, Agler didnt seem at ease despite heading to Los Angeles with a split.You know, Im glad we won a game, Agler said, almost tentative of his teams chances against the defending champion Lynx. Youre sitting back and saying, Well, that team has got to win on the road. Thats going to be very important, and it is, theres no question about it. But from my seat now, I dont really look at it that way. I just sort of focus on the next game...Our focus right now is to win one more game. Thats what we want to do. We want to win one more game, and then well see where we stand and well go from there.Minnesota won Game 2 on Tuesday night, 79-60, finally pulling away in what had been a close series until the second quarter on Tuesday. Game 3 is Friday at the Galen Center.Aglers hesitancy is fitting a series against the Lynx, who are seeking their fourth championship in six years. Last year, Minnesota lost the first game on its home court before beating Indiana in five games. The Lynx won Game 2 at home before going on the road and taking back the home-court advantage with a Game 3 win in Indiana.We have a lot of confidence, Minnesota guard Seimone Augustus said after 14 points in Tuesdays victory. Like you said, we were in this position before, last year. And, I mean, the thing for us is we know what we needed to do.The Lynx have been in a similar position not only in recovering from a blown Game 1. Minnesotas core has been around during their championship runs.Augustus, Maya Moore, Lindsay Whalen and Rebekkah Brunson have been key players on each of the championship teams. Even relative newcomer Sylvia Fowles has played nine WNBA seasons and was on last years title team, winning the Finals MVP.Los Angeles features one player with Finals experience in seldom-used center Ann Wauters.The inexperience might have shown on Tuesday when the Sparks couldnt counter the Lynx big runs.Everybody just kind of has to do a better job of helping one another, Los Angeles guard Kristi Toliver said. Sometimes its hard in an environment like this, and it just feels like everything is going a mile a minute. You kind of just have to take a pause sometimes, and I think (Tuesday) we didnt take that pause.Los Angeles led the league during the regular season by shooting 48.7 percent from the floor. On Tuesday, the Sparks shot just 32.9 percent (23 of 70). League MVP Nneka Ogwumike took just six shots, making five in a 14-point performance.Meanwhile, the Lynx controlled the boards with a 46-32 rebounding advantage.I think theres only one statistic that maybe theres a separator between the two teams, and its rebounding, Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve said. So, we might as well try to use it to our advantage, and it gives you the extra possessions. We got some good hustle plays.Moore, who was third in MVP voting behind Ogwumike and New Yorks Tina Charles, was the star of Game 2. Moore scored 21 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the game, and keyed a 17-3 lead in the second quarter as the Lynx took control of the game and changed the outlook of the series.Its a series, Toliver said. I said after Game 3 when we lost in Chicago (in the semifinals) that we werent going to sweep them, and were not going to sweep now in the Finals. Were still a confident group. We still feel good.We came here to do what we wanted to do, and that was to get one (win). We feel pretty good about that, and now we need to take care of business at home. Jeremy Lin Jersey . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday. Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer. Brook Lopez Nets Jersey . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win. The winner of this years Bathurst 1000 may not be confirmed for at least another week despite Jamie Whincup failing to overturn a penalty that cost him a fifth Great Race victory.The Supercars National Court of Appeals dismissal of Whincups appeal on Tuesday night ensured provisional winner Holdens Will Davison and co-driver Jonathon Webbs grip on the Peter Brock Trophy tightened.However, Whincups Red Bull Racing (RBR) team have a week to decide whether to take their case to the FIA International Court of Appeal.Whincup crossed the line first on the October 9 race but was relegated to 11th due to a 15 second time penalty for his role in a late incident that ended the winning hopes of Volvos Scott McLaughlin and Holdens Garth Tander.Triple Eight Race Engineering entry RBR appealed the severity of the time penalty but it took just 50 minutes for the three-man Supercars Court of Appeal panel to dismiss it.Supercars welcomes the decision ... in relation to Triple Eights appeal of a stewards decision at the Bathurst 1000, Supercars CEO James Warburton said.We look forward to this weekends Gold Coast 600 and an exciting conclusion to the 2016 Supercars championsship over the coming months. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Nets Jersey. However, it may be another week before Davison and Webb can officially celebrate a Bathurst 1000 win.RBR have not indicated yet whether they will appeal the decision.Tanders Holden teammate James Courtney said there would be a lot of upset people if RBR did pull off a Bathurst win via the courts.No one wants the Bathurst 1000 decided in a court room, Courtney told AAP.It is like the Melbourne Cup being decided in a court room and not on the track.I would feel bad for Jon and Will. That team worked their arses off to get the result.There would be a lot of upset people.Courtney said no matter what the result, the fans had been let down by the fallout of the controversial Bathurst 1000 race.For such an event to end that way and then be dragged through the media and courts, it is not what we are here to do, he said.Even people in the industry are scratching their heads not knowing what is going on or how it is playing out.I feel more for the fan base. It has let down them more than anything.
