Lynx-Phoenix game preview

  • Updated: June 10, 2010 - 12:30 AM

Preview: It has taken Lynx guard Seimone Augustus a year to get back on the court, but even if it feels like a lot has changed, at least some things will look familiar. Augustus originally tore her ACL while playing against the Mercury last June. "Going back to Phoenix, where I got hurt and playing against that team will help me move on, and move forward," she said.

Players to watch: The last time the teams met, rookie Monica Wright reeled off 32 points for the Lynx (2-7) in a 92-82 victory. ... Diana Taurasi leads the Mercury (3-5) in scoring with 20.1 ppg, the fourth highest average in the league. ... The Mercury's Tangela Smith is tied for first in the league in personal fouls at 31.

Numbers: Both teams are coming off back-to-back losses. ... In their last meeting, the Mercury recorded their lowest field goal percentage, but set season highs in free throw percentage (.938), blocks (10) and three-point percentage.
