Lynx update: With a 2½-game lead over Los Angeles in the Western Conference, the Lynx are on the cusp of clinching their third consecutive regular-season conference title. But it won’t be easy, with back-to-back games in Seattle. The Storm hasn’t played since losing in Minnesota last Saturday. And with a potential playoff series matchup with the Lynx looming, the Storm will be very prepared for the Lynx. Minnesota is one of only three WNBA teams with a winning road record (9-5). Minnesota has won five games in a row, shooting better than 50 percent in four of those wins. PG Lindsay Whalen is coming off a career-high 14 assists in Wednesday’s victory over Los Angeles, while G Seimone Augustus is coming off her seventh game of 20-plus points.

Storm update: Seattle, which has clinched a playoff berth, is in fourth place in the Western Conference, one game behind third-place Phoenix. Seattle has four games left, two each against Minnesota and Tulsa, and three of those are at home, where the Storm is 8-6. The Aug. 31 loss at Minnesota ended a two-game winning streak. C Tina Thompson had 18 points vs. the Lynx in that game. But the Storm still finished August with an 8-5 record. Thompson leads the Storm in scoring (14.1) and rebounding (5.9).
