Minnesota at Storm preview
7 tonight at KeyArena
Records: Lynx 24-7, Storm 15-16
NOTES: Minnesota needs one win to clinch its third consecutive Western Conference regular-season title. The Lynx won the WNBA title in 2011. ... With three games remaining, the Storm sits two games behind Phoenix (17-13) for the No. 3 playoff slot and likely first-round matchup with Los Angeles (22-10). If the postseason began today, Seattle and Minnesota would meet in a first-round best-of-three matchup. ... Johnson is wearing a protective boot on her right leg for precautionary reasons. ... Seattle is 0-3 against the Lynx this season. ... Whalen, a four-time All-Star, signed a multiyear contract extension with the Lynx last week.
