Fresh off a 21-point victory in Monday's game, the Minnesota Lynx (14-4) will look for two in a row on Thursday afternoon in the second game of a home-and-home series with the Tulsa Shock (3-14).
After opening the regular season with 10 consecutive victories to stake their claim as the best squad in the WNBA, Minnesota has hit a rough patch as of late and has dropped four of their last eight games. Leading scorer Seimone Augustus will look to fix that and also continue her torrid shooting pace in Thursday's game for the Lynx however, as the six-foot guard has shot 62.5% from the field over her last three contests.
Defensively, Minnesota will try to find a way to slow down Tulsa's lightning-quick guard Ivory Latta, who poured in 25 points despite the loss earlier in the week. Latta has been especially dangerous from the three-point line recently, and is connecting on 68.4% of her attempts from behind the arc over her last three games.
The game will tip at 11:00 a.m. CST and will be televised on FSN Minnesota.
