Preview: Lynx Meet Storm In Late Night Matchup In Bradenton

A pair of WNBA MVPs meet on the hardwood Tuesday night in Bradenton, Fla. when the Minnesota Lynx (1-0) meet the Seattle Storm(1-0).

The Lynx made their season debut on Sunday against the Connecticut Sun with a 77-69 win, led by 2017 WNBA Most Valuable Player Sylvia Fowles with 17 points and 18 rebounds to go with four blocks. Tuesday night, Fowles is looking to take the WNBA All-Time Rebounds record, passing Minnesota Lynx Assistant Coach and five-time WNBA champion Rebekkah Brunson’s  3,356 career rebounds. Rookie point guard Crystal Dangerfield proved herself in the second half with 10 points versus the Sun, providing a much needed spark off the bench.

The Storm defeated the New York Liberty 87-71 in their season debut on Saturday. The 2018 WNBA MVP, Breanna Stewart, returned to action after being sidelined last season with a torn right Achilles’ tendon she suffered while playing overseas. She had 18 points and eight rebounds in her first game back.
