Sylvia Fowles, Odyssey Sims named WNBA All-Stars

It's the first selection for Sims and the sixth for Fowles.

Another year with multiple All-Star selections for the Minnesota Lynx, who behind Sylvia Fowles and Odyssey Sims are 10-7 and just 1.5 games out of the top spot in the WNBA. 

Fowles and Sims were named as All-Star reserves Monday, marking the eighth straight season the Lynx have had at least two All-Stars. It's the second-longest active streak with multiple All-Stars, trailing Phoenix's mark of 10 consecutive years with at least two All-Stars. 

Fowles is averaging 14.2 points and 10.1 rebounds per game, and in Minnesota's win over Phoenix on Sunday she became the WNBA's all-time leader in double-doubles (158), passing Hall of Famer Lisa Leslie. 

Sims leads the Lynx in scoring at 15.7 points per game and a career-best 5.4 assists. 

The 16th WNBA All-Star Game is Saturday, July 27 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. 

Minnesota is back in action at home at 7 p.m. Wednesday against the Seattle Storm.
