For the sixth time in franchise history, the Minnesota Lynx have at least three players headed to the WNBA All-Star Game. 

This year's game is extra special since it'll be played at Target Center in Minneapolis on July 28, and it'll feature Maya Moore, Sylvia Fowles and Seimone Augustus. 

It's a team record eighth selection to the All-Star Game for Augustus, 

Moore, the reigning two-time All-Star Game MVP, is in for the sixth time in her career, having made it every year possible since being taken first overall by the Lynx in the 2011 WNBA Draft. There wasn't an All-Star Game in 2012 or 2016 because of the Olympics. 

Fowles is an All-Star for the fifth time in her career, and a second time with the Lynx. 

The top eight teams in the WNBA make the playoffs, and entering play Tuesday night the Lynx (12-10) were seventh in the league, but just 1 1/2 games behind the third-place Los Angeles Sparks (14-9). 

Minnesota hosts the Indiana Fever at 12 p.m. Wednesday.
