Lynx at a glance: This will be their first game in Bankers Life Fieldhouse since Oct. 21, when the Lynx lost to the Fever in the fourth and final game of the 2012 WNBA Finals. Without the injured Seimone Augustus (left ankle sprain), the Lynx dominated Atlanta on Tuesday, posting their second-highest point total of the season (94) while shooting 51.5 percent and having a season-high 12 steals. Augustus is doubtful for this game. Monica Wright, who replaced her in the starting lineup vs. the Dream, scored 22 points on 7-for-10 shooting. Maya Moore is coming off a 19-point night in which she made seven of eight shots. Lindsay Whalen had 20 points and five assists. The key for the Lynx — undefeated at home — is learning to play more consistently on the road, where they are 2-3.

Fever at a glance: After beginning the season 1-7 — the worst start ever for a defending WNBA champion — the Fever has won its last three games. The slow start was due almost entirely to injuries. C Jessica Davenport (tibia stress fracture) will miss the entire season. G Jeanette Pohlen (ACL surgery) and G Erin Phillips (right knee) have yet to play. Phillips is close to returning but will likely be out another week. And G Katie Douglas (back) hasn’t played since May 31. The Fever is the league’s lowest-scoring team (69.3) and has the least productive bench (10.8 points per game). But the Fever does have Tamika Catchings, averaging 18.8 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. The 6-1 forward has averaged 22.7 points her past three games.
