Minnesota looks for its third straight win over Seattle tonight in a game televised by ESPN2.

The defending WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx travel to play the Seattle Storm tonight, a game that will be televised live on ESPN2 at 9 p.m. CT. While Minnesota (17-4) has already clinched a playoff spot this season, coach Cheryl Reeve is trying to keep the team focused on this season. Specifically, what happened the last time the Lynx saw the Storm.

Minnesota had its league-record 10-0 start snapped with a 65-62 loss at Seattle on June 17 in the teams' most recent meeting. Seattle (10-11) is playing thin, however. The Storm only dressed eight players for its 82-71 loss to Los Angeles on Saturday. Minnesota won its first two meetings with Seattle this season, 84-71 on May 27 and 79-55 on June 6.

Holding off San Antonio (15-5) and Los Angeles (16-6) for the top spot in the West is more on the mind of Reeve than the fact that the team has already secured a postseason berth.

"(Making the playoffs) means absolutely nothing to us. That's not the mission," Reeve said. "We know it's part of the process."

Maya Moore's 15.2 points per game leads the Lynx attack, while Seattle is paced by guard Sue Bird's 12.7 points and 5.4 assists.
