The Minnesota Lynx will try end the Los Angeles Sparks' 15-game home winning streak tonight.

But getting the job done might be harder than it sounds.

In the past 10 regular-season games against the Sparks at Staples Center, Minnesota has lost nine times.

The worst shellacking came on June 21, when L.A. (5-4 on the year) blew out the Lynx, 87-59, for Minnesota's most lopsided WNBA loss since 2011.

The Lynx (7-2) have recovered since then, posting back-to-back wins over Tulsa and Los Angeles since then.
