6 p.m. vs. Seattle • FSN, NBA TV, 106.1-FM
Preview: The Lynx, coming off a 90-80 victory at Atlanta on Friday, look to continue to bolster a record that is the best 20-game mark to start a season in franchise history (18-2). The team has a three-game lead over Los Angeles in the standings. This is the second of three meetings between the Lynx and Storm (10-12), the first of which the Lynx won 100-77 on June 3 in Seattle.
Players to watch: Seattle F Breanna Stewart started relatively slowly this season and was 5-for-16 shooting against the Lynx in the teams’ previous matchup. She has averaged 23.6 points over the Storm’s previous nine games, though, and shot 53 percent during that stretch. Lynx F Maya Moore has been more efficient recently, too. She has shot 55.3 percent in Minnesota’s past three games, all victories.
By the numbers: The Storm is a methodical team. Seattle leads the league in field goal percentage (48.1 percent) while attempting the fewest shots per game (61.5).
