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.
