-          The Lynx and Sparks meet this afternoon in a rematch from Friday night’s 82-74 Los Angeles season-opening win at Staples Center. The first 2,500 fans in attendance today will receive a 2011 Lynx magnet schedule, courtesy of Best Buy and Identisys.


-          The Lynx will be looking to snap an eight-game losing streak to the Sparks. LA leads the all-time series 34-9.


-          In her WNBA debut, No. 1 overall draft choice Maya Moore totaled a game-high 21 points (7-of-17 FG; 4-of-11 3FG) to go along with four rebounds and four assists Friday night in Los Angeles.


-          Moore’s 21 points were tied for the third-most point scored by a rookie in their WNBA debut (Parker, 2008, 34; Taurasi, 2004, 22). In scoring 21 points, Moore became just the fifth rookie - first since Candace Parker in 2008 - to score 20+ points in their WNBA debut.

-          Lindsay Whalen comes into today’s game just 34 rebounds shy of becoming the third player in WNBA history to record 2,500+ points, 1,000+ rebounds and 1,000+ assists.


-          In front of a sold-out crowd of 9,985, the Lynx dropped the 2010 Home Opener to Washington, 87-76. The Lynx come into today’s contest 7-5 all-time in Home Openers.
