Last time: On Sunday, the visiting Lynx defeated the San Antonio Silver Stars 81-62, and the visiting Sky lost to the Connecticut Sun 82-77.

Skinny: The Lynx is the hottest team in the WNBA, having won 11 straight games. On top of that, Minnesota is the defending WNBA champion, seemingly primed for another run at the trophy. Clearly, the Sky will have its hands full in trying to keep pace with the New York Liberty for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Sky's loss Sunday, combined with a 73-71 New York win over the Los Angeles Sparks, puts the Liberty one-half game ahead of the Sky with six games to play Center Sylvia Fowles did not play against Connecticut. She is nursing a lower-leg injury sustained in Friday's win at New York. Swin Cash filled the void in the paint, scoring 21 points and grabbing 15 rebounds against the Sun The Lynx features one of the most exciting young players in the WNBA in forward Maya Moore, who is coming off an 18-point performance against San Antonio. Guard Seimone Augustus leads the Lynx in scoring (17.2 ppg), but she missed the San Antonio game with a sprained right foot.

Next: Sky at Los Angeles Sparks, 9:30 p.m. Thursday
