The Seattle Storm are probably the better team at full strength, and they're till fighting for playoff seeding, but they've also been so hit or miss these last couple of weeks that them losing in this spot would surprise nobody. The Minnesota Lynx are playing some of their best ball of the season right now, and they need to keep winning if they're going to lock up a playoff spot. This game means more to the Lynx, and they're at home. I'll gladly take the bucket with the more motivated club.
