Storm at Tulsa
5 tonight at BOK Center
Records: Shock 11-21, Storm 15-17
NOTES: Tulsa was knocked out of playoff contention in August but still owns Seattle. The Shock is 3-0 against the Storm this season — all before the All-Star break — winning by an average of 19.3 points. The teams’ final two games of the season are a home-and-home series, Thursday and Saturday. ... Tulsa lost five games this season in overtime, which might have changed its playoff outlook. The Shock hasn’t advanced to the postseason since relocating from Detroit in 2010. The Storm is making its 10th consecutive trip, facing Minnesota as the No. 4 seed in the opening-round best-of-three series next week. ... Tulsa coach Gary Kloppenburg, a former Seattle assistant, is a candidate for Coach of the Year. His contract expires at the end of the regular-season. ... Storm point guard Temeka Johnson (ankle) and reserve forward Alysha Clark (ankle) are day-to-day. Shock All-Star Liz Cambage, a 6-foot-8 center, is not with the team, returning to her native Australia due to an ankle injury. ... Williams, a Sixth Woman of the Year candidate now starting, posted a WNBA-record 51 points in the Shock’s last game.
