The Minnesota Lynx are in Seattle to wrap up the regular season with a game against the Storm Friday night, then it's off to the postseason where the Lynx will hook up with the Los Angeles Parks in the first round.

Game 1 of the best-of-three series will be televised on NBA TV on Friday, Sept. 18.

Game 2 is Sunday at 2 p.m. in Los Angeles and Game 3, if necessary, will be back at Target Center on Tuesday the 22nd.

ESPN will televise Game 2 and ESPN2 is scheduled to air Game 3.

Maya Moore scored 20 points to lead the Lynx over the Storm Tuesday night, with the victory giving them the No. 1 overall seed in the Western Conference. KARE notes that Minnesota has earned the top seed four of the last five years.

The Lynx have reached the Western Conference Finals each of the last four years and have advanced to WNBA Finals three times in that span.

Minnesota beat Los Angeles in three of four games during the regular season.
