Lynx at a glance: Minnesota (6-1) will try to go six games above .500 for the first time in the 10-year history of the franchise tonight, and anything seems possible. Three of five WNBA rookies averaging in double figures are Lynx players: Candice Wiggins (15.4), Charde Houston (11.3) and Nicky Anosike (10.4). All have had one double-double already this season, and Sports Illustrated is working on a story on them. The Lynx are averaging 13.3 turnovers per game - fewest in the league -- and 86.1 points per game, second-best in the league.
