Lynx at a glance: The Lynx have won a franchise-record 12 consecutive regular-season home games dating to last season. After a performance that got the starters benched for the second half of a blowout loss in L.A. last Friday, the starters responded by scoring 82 of the team’s 88 points in a victory over Tulsa on Sunday. Maya Moore is tied for fourth in the WNBA in scoring (18.6 points per game).

Sparks at a glance: The addition of point guard Lindsey Harding from Atlanta has paid huge dividends for the Sparks, who have won three consecutive games and four out of five. The former Lynx leads the Sparks in scoring (16.2) and assists (5.7). She has complemented Candace Parker, Kristi Tolliver (14.7 points, 1.57 steals) and Nneka Ogwumike (13.3 points, 6.4 rebounds). Los Angeles is 5-0 at home after beating Washington 79-69 on Sunday but 0-2 on the road. Harding had a season-high 22 points and seven assists against the Mystics, Parker had 20 points, seven rebounds and four blocks.
