Brittney Griner, Diana Taurasi, and the Phoenix Mercury will host the league's top team, Minnesota, in the late game on Friday's WNBA schedule. The Lynx, led by WNBA MVP candidate Sylvia Fowles, and current WNBA All-Star game top vote-getter Maya Moore, have lost just once all season and are looking to continue on a new winning streak. Meanwhile, Phoenix features the league's top scorer this season in Griner, and Taurasi, who recently became the WNBA's all-time career points leader. Will it be the visiting Minnesota Lynx or the Phoenix Mercury capturing this important win?

Here's a look at the game preview, including how to watch the Lynx vs. Mercury live streaming online or on TV Friday night.

Game preview

The Minnesota Lynx arrive at tonight's road game with Phoenix sporting a league-best record of 11-1. Their only stumble so far this season came against the Connecticut Sun, with Minnesota able to bounce back since that defeat. Since then, Minnesota's Maya Moore has jumped into the lead in the WNBA All-Star voting based on her popularity with fans and impressive stats over her career.

Sylvia Fowles is leading the team, scoring 21 Points Per Game, which is second-best in the WNBA. She's also grabbing about 10 rebounds a game to average a double-double this season.

Minnesota enters tonight's game off of back-to-back wins over the Washington Mystics and San Antonio Stars.

On the opposing side will be the league's top scorer in Brittney Griner. She's putting up over 23 points per game and also getting about eight boards per contest. Her teammate Diana Taurasi will be honored ahead of the game for her recent achievement in the league.

Taurasi has yet to play a home game since breaking the WNBA's all-time career points record on June 18th so they'll honor her at Talking Stick Resort Arena.

The Mercury are 7-5 overall and 3-3 on their home court. They're coming off of a recent three-point road win at the Seattle Storm. Phoenix will also debut two new members of their roster as recently-acquired Monique Currie, formerly of San Antonio, and recently-signed Angel Robinson (formerly of the Seattle Storm), will both be on hand at tonight's game.
