The Minnesota Lynx have accomplished one huge goal heading into the WNBA playoffs. They're the No. 1 seed in the tournament, a spot clinched Friday night with a 66-64 win at Indiana.

Tonight, the Fever are at Target Center for the rematch, and need to win to stay close to Connecticut for the No. 1 playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.

It's also the final home game of the 2012 regular season at Target Center for the Lynx. That makes it Fan Appreciation Night, with the first 10,000 fans receiving a 2012 team poster. The team also says it will give away hundreds of dollars in prizes, highlighted by a $500 Best Buy gift card.
