Lynx Vs. Shock Preview: Minnesota Looks For 9-0 Start Against 0-7 Tulsa

The Minnesota Lynx will visit the Tulsa Shock Saturday night looking to match the best start in WNBA history. They couldn't have asked for a better opponent in that quest, as the struggling Tulsa Shock have yet to put together a win this year. Tulsa lost a seven point lead in the final 32 seconds of Friday's overtime loss to the Chicago Sky. The Lynx aren't letting that lull them into a false sense of security, though. As guard Candice Wiggins told the official WNBA site:

"We're undefeated for a reason but we gotta remember that, not get too high on ourselves, which we're not. We're a humble team. I feel like Tulsa is kind of like going to be one of the toughest games of the year."

A repeat of their performance against Seattle would give them a comfortable win. That game saw Taj McWilliams-Franklin score 17 points and another four players score in the double digits. Victory would put the Lynx at 9-0 and make them on the third team in WNBA history to start the season that well. Saturday's game is in Tulsa and scheduled for 7:00pm CDT (8:00pm EDT).
