Lynx update: The Lynx have won four consecutive games and five of six since losing three in a row in mid-August. Three of the past four victories have been by 14 or more points. F Maya Moore has been making an MVP push — she could be named Western Conference Player of the Month for August. She has scored 30 or more points in her past two home games and has averaged 24.0 points over her past six games. F/G Seimone Augustus has scored in double figures in 14 of her past 15 games. PG Lindsay Whalen has averaged better than six assists in her past 12 games.

Sparks update: The Sparks had won nine of 10 and three in a row entering Monday’s game at Atlanta. But the Dream — playing without Armintie Herrington (concussion) and Tiffany Hayes (knee) — won 92-82, scoring 50 points in the paint. That dropped L.A.’s road record to 8-7. The Sparks have lost six in a row in Minnesota since a one-point victory in August of 2010. F/C Candace Parker has averaged 18 points and 8.3 rebounds in her past 10 games. She has averaged 16.3 points and 9.0 rebounds vs. the Lynx this season. Nneka Ogwumike has averaged 13 points in those games.
