Minnesota will play their last game before the 5-week Olympic break on Friday night against the 9-14 Seattle Storm.
The Lynx are 2-0 against the Storm so far this season, winning their most recent matchup by 12, and will be looking for the clean sweep come Friday evening.
While Minnesota will be looking to tally their sixth straight win, Seattle is hoping they can put together back-to-back wins for the first time since June 28th.
Before tuning into the last Lynx game that will be played until August 26th (insert sad face emoji here), make sure to keep these interesting tidbits in mind:
– The Lynx rank first in the WNBA in points per game with 86.1, while the Storm are 10th, putting in 80.4 points per contest.
– One way in which Minnesota could beat Seattle is through the play of their bigs. Rebekkah Brunson and Sylvia Fowles are a hand-full to deal with down low, so look for them to impact the game heavily as the Storm rank last in the league in rebounds per game.
– Rookie sensation Breanna Stewart is having an outstanding season so far, averaging 19.3 points on 46.4 percent shooting, 9.3 boards and 3.6 assists per matchup.
– Minnesota four Olympians (Maya Moore, Fowles, Seimone Augustus and Lindsay Whalen) are all averaging more than 10 points per game and are each shooting better than 44 percent from the floor.
