Storylines to follow

The Phoenix Mercury host the Minnesota Lynx on Saturday night in a game that features six All-Stars, three from each team. Diana Taurasi and Maya Moore will be the key matchup on the perimeter, while Brittney Griner and Sylvia Fowles will be the key matchup in the low post. The two teams have split the previous two matches with the road team winning each time. With a win, the Mercury can stay in the race for the top seed while the Lynx can get themselves in the mix for a top-4 seed if they win.
