Fever Look to Regain Momentum on the Road against Minnesota
The Fever head north to face the Minnesota Lynx for the first two times of the season this weekend beginning Friday at 8 p.m. ET. Fans across the state, as well in Kentucky and Ohio, can tune in to both Fever games this weekend at FeverBasketball.com and the team's official Facebook page.
Minnesota has taken six of the last seven meetings against the Fever dating back to 2018.
The Fever look to snap a two-game losing streak after losing to the Mercury on Saturday, as well as an 86-81 defeat on Monday night. Lindsay Allen finished with a career-high 15 points and added a career best in field goals made (7), field goals attempted (19) and minutes played (35:23). Her nine points in the first quarter alone were the most ever scored in a single quarter in her fourth WNBA season. Allen also added a season-high seven assists.
Kelsey Mitchell, the 10th leading scorer in the WNBA, finished with her 31st career 20-point game on Monday, while Teaira McCowan, who is the fifth best rebounder in the WNBA averaging 9.5 boards per game, added her 11th double-double of the season with 13 points and 16 rebounds. It was also her team-leading 27th double-double of her career.
Victoria Vivians came off the bench to end with 13 points on 3-of-5 shooting from 3-point range. Monday was her seventh game this season scoring in double figures. Tiffany Mitchell continued to lead from the charity stripe going 7-of-7 for her 11 points. Mitchell has now scored in double figures in 17 of the last 18 games.
Minnesota dropped its last game, 102-81, to the Las Vegas Aces on Wednesday night. Aeriel Powers came off the bench to lead Minnesota with 20 points, while Sylvia Fowles, who is only one of two players in the WNBA to average at least 10 rebounds per game, continued her dominant season with 10 points and 11 rebounds. Napheesa Collier also added 18 points as Minnesota enters Friday winners in 13 of the last 16 contests.
