The 2017 WNBA Finals have seen two games decided by close margins with both the Los Angeles Sparks and Minnesota Lynx capturing wins. Now the two teams will move the series over to Los Angeles, where the defending champions will look to gain a 2-1 series lead at home. The Sparks have been dominant on their home court, so can Minnesota capture a rare win? Here's the latest WNBA Finals Game 3 preview including matchup odds, TV time, channel, and live streaming options.

Game 3 preview

In Game 1 of the series, the Los Angeles Sparks escaped Minnesota with a slim 85-84 victory. Chelsea Gray led L.A. with 27 points on 10-for-16 shooting and six assists.

She also delivered the game-winning shot for her team, a 14-foot jumper with about two seconds left in the game. The Sparks led by as much as 21 points in the first half of that game, but the home team outscored them 73-53 over the next three quarters.

That momentum may have carried over into Game 2. In that contest, the Minnesota Lynx captured a 70-68 win. WNBA MVP Sylvia Fowles had 13 points and 17 rebounds to lead the way for her team. All five of Minnesota's starters finished in double-digits with Lindsay Whalen leading the scoring effort with 14 points. Fowles and Moore each had 14 as the Lynx shot 44.4 percent in the big Game 2 victory.
