It also features three of the Western Conference's WNBA All-Star Game starters, and two teams that have accounted for a total of six WNBA Championships won between them.

WNBA game preview

With a record of 13-2 overall and 6-1 on the road, the Minnesota Lynx have dominated the WNBA standings once again this season.

The team dropped their last game by a final of 100-76 in a surprising blowout defeat at the hands of the Chicago Sky. A re-focused Lynx team will probably be looking to make a statement and grab the win to rebound in their latest outing, especially against a top-notch opponent.

The Phoenix Mercury are 11-6 overall and three games behind Minnesota for first-place in the league. A win tonight would go further towards pushing the Mercury towards the top of the standings. They're bringing an impressive four-game winning streak into tonight's home game, with the last victory an 89-84 win over the Atlanta Dream. The league's top overall scorer, Brittney Griner, recorded 28 points and eight rebounds to lead the way, while teammate Diana Taurasi added 20 points with a 6-for-12 rate from downtown.

Taurasi is among the WNBA All-Star Game starters in the Western Conference. Also joining her will be Minnesota's Maya Moore and Sylvia Fowles as part of the starting five for the annual game. Tonight the three stars get to show their skills in an intriguing matchup in Phoenix.

The Odds Shark website lists the visiting Minnesota Lynx as a seven-point favorite to win on the point spread.

On the moneyline, Minnesota is listed at -290 to -330 at various sports books, while the Phoenix Mercury are +245 or higher underdogs. The over/under points total is around 167 points for the complete game, as of this report.
