Lynx @ Storm

The Storm’s Lauren Jackson is healthy and killing it, as she always does when she’s healthy. Last year, she was hurt, but the year before that she won the WNBA scoring title. The runner-up that season was Minnesota’s Seimone Augustus. They meet tonight in a game between the Lynx and Storm that promises to provide a slew of entertaining ballers. The Storm’s Swin Cash is getting old (she’s been dogged by a herniated disk for which she recently got surgery), but staying money. The Lynx’s Charde Houston is still young and even more money. Her name’s Houston, but she went to Connecticut, which is also the alma mater of Sue Bird, the Storm’s starting point guard and a former WNBA Finals MVP. Finally, for novelty value, the Lynx’s Rashanda McCants is the sister of NBA player Rashad McCants—he used to date Khloe Kardashian—and she has the same haircut as 2005 NBA MVP Steve Nash had in 2005.
