The Minnesota Lynx will be back in action at Target Center tonight in a matchup against the Phoenix Mercury.

The Associated Press notes that Phoenix will try to extend its longest winning streak in two seasons to six -- and take over the top spot in the Western Conference. The Lynx has a streak of their own to extend; the team has posted 13 consecutive victories at home, a franchise record.

Fans attending the evening game will get to watch Phoenix's Brittany Griner, the 6-foot-8 Baylor center and no. 1 overall pick. Despite her presence, Phoenix fell to the Lynx at both of their previous matchups this season, losing 99-79 at Minneapolis on June 6 and 80-69 at home June 19.

Maya Moore is scoring 24.0 points per game against Phoenix this season, 7.2 more than her team-leading season average.
