In the last game, Collier put up 25 points, nine rebounds, and five assists while Dangerfield put up 21 points and five assists. On the season the Lynx are averaging 82.6 points while shooting 44.5 percent from the field. On defense the Lynx are giving up 77.1 points while letting opponents shoot 43.1 percent from the field.

On the other side of this matchup is the Chicago Sky who are also coming off a big win against the Indiana Fever.
