· Analysis and player features for every game from writers Mechelle Voepel and Michelle Smith.

· Tweets from espnW writers, ESPN analysts and WNBA and WNBA.com staff will be included in WNBA Finals Live, a live online chat which will run from the opening tip to the final whistle of each contest.

Veteran guard Seimone Augustus leads the team in points at 16.6 per game, while forward Maya Moore is averaging 16.4 points and 6.0 rebounds. The Lynx bested Seattle in the Western Conference Semifinals two games to one, followed by a two-game sweep of Los Angeles in the Western Conference Finals.
