The Minnesota Lynx have one of the best offenses in the WNBA, but their success starts on defense.Minnesota (15-3) has the second-best scoring defense in the league and also holds opponents to the second-lowest shooting percentage. After limiting Chicago to 39.1 percent shooting in a victory Tuesday, the Lynx take aim Thursday night at the Eastern Conference cellar-dwelling Connecticut Sun (4-13).We just told our team that we are 78-1 when we hold our opponents below 40 percent, Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said in Tuesdays postgame press conference. That is how we win. That will always be the case with this group. That is where it starts and ends.Minnesota, which got off to a WNBA-record 13-0 start, lost three in a row before winning its past two games.The Lynx allowed an average of 92 points during their losing streak and failed to hold any of those three foes under 40 percent shooting. For the season, they allow 75.2 points and 41.6 percent shooting.Minnesota and Connecticut are meeting for the first time this season.The Sun are coming off their most impressive win of the season, an 86-83 triumph at Dallas on Saturday. Their other victories have come against San Antonio (twice) and Seattle, teams out of the playoff picture if the season ended today.Connecticut is ninth in scoring at 80.3 points per game. Guard Alex Bentley averages a team-best 14.4 points per contest. Forward Alyssa Thomas averages 10.6 and guard Jasmine Thomas is at 10.2.The Lynx, who average 83.3 points, are led by forward Maya Moore at 19.3 points and 4.3 assists per game. She scored 33 in the 87-82 win over Chicago, and her second-half defense on Sky star Elena Delle Donne was key. Delle Donne, the reigning league MVP, scored 38, but had just 13 after halftime when Moore got the defensive assignment.When Maya had a chance to guard her, it really got Maya going, Reeve said.Minnesota has balance behind Moore. Center Sylvia Fowles averages 13.8 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, shooting 58.7 percent. Guard Seimone Augustus averages 10.2 points. Guard Lindsay Whalen averages 8.6 points, 3.5 assists and shoots 37.5 percent from 3-point range. Vapormax Flyknit 2 Homme Pas Cher .
