lynx gameday

At Tulsa, 7 p.m. • BOK Center • Radio: 106.1-FM

Lynx update: The Lynx have won 13 consecutive games vs. the Shock, including seven in a row on the road. Minnesota (10-3) is on a three-game winning streak, built with strong defense (opponents have not shot better than 37.7 percent) and efficient offense (the Lynx are shooting 46.8 percent). … G Monica Wright has scored 22 points in both of her starts replacing injured Seimone Augustus (sprained left ankle). Augustus is questionable for Saturday’s game. In her past three games Wright has averaged 20.3 points, five rebounds and four assists while Lindsay Whalen — who scored 12 fourth-quarter points Thursday in Indiana — has averaged 19 points, four rebounds and 3.7 assists. … Maya Moore is coming off a subpar 3-for-12 shooting performance against Indiana.

Shock update: Tulsa (3-12) has lost five consecutive games, the fifth coming at the hands of the Los Angeles Sparks on Thursday; it was L.A.’s first road victory this season. … F Tiffany Jackson-Jones saw her first regular-season action on Thursday since 2011 — she missed last season while pregnant and the first part of this season with a stress fracture in her right leg — and she scored nine points. … F Glory Johnson, the team’s leading scorer and rebounder, left the Sparks’ game with a sore neck and is questionable against the Lynx.
