The Minnesota Lynx are on the road for a one-game road trip where they will face the Seattle Storm in a late Wednesday night contest.

The Lynx currently sit at 21-4 overall this season, enough to hold a three-game lead over the Los Angeles Sparks for the best record in the WNBA. The Storm (11-16 overall) are still fighting for a playoff spot, currently tied with Chicago for eighth place.

“We just think about the long haul that we’ve been through and how we bounce back to get to this point,” Sylvia Fowles said following shootaround on Wednesday. “We’re satisfied, but we aren’t as satisfied. We still have a long way to go, we have a couple of games left and put ourselves in a good situation to get these playoffs rolling.”

Minnesota comes in having hit a little bump in the road really for the first time this season. The Lynx have dropped two of their last three games entering Wednesday.

“We know what we do well. When we do it to the best of our ability, it’s hard to stop us,” Fowles said. “It’s the little things that we need to refocus in on and make sure get things done in these last couple games.”

But the Lynx are not worrying about what has happened in the past or what took place prior to the game. They are focused on bouncing back against Seattle on Wednesday night.

“Just go out there and take what they give us and not overthink anything,” Fowles said. “I think that’s when we are at our best when we don’t overthink things. . .We just have to take what they give us. They can’t stop everything.

The Lynx and Storm battle at 9 p.m. Wednesday at KeyArena in Seattle. The game will be aired on NBATV, 106.1 BOB FM and TuneIn Radio.
