WNBA Finals 2011, Dream Vs. Lynx Game 1 Score: Lindsey Harding Pushes Atlanta To 18-14 Lead After One

Lindsey Harding's seven points and two assists helped stake the Atlanta Dream to a 18-14 lead at the end of the first quarter in Game 1 of the WNBA Finals. Rebekkah Brunson led the way for the Lynx with six points but spent the later part of the quarter on the bench with two fouls.

Atlanta shot just 38 percent in the quarter but forced four Minnesota turnovers. The Lynx have a slight 10-9 edge in rebounding that the Dream will certainly live with while utilizing the small lineup. 

Minnesota's Taj McWilliams-Franklin started the game but left after playing three minutes and headed back to the locker room with some kind of intestinal problem. She returned to the bench midway through the first quarter but did not re-enter the game during the first quarter.
