· Twelve cameras will be used throughout the WNBA Finals, including the roving floor (RF) camera on court during parts of the action that will give fans more access and a unique perspective.

espnW will be covering every angle of the WNBA Finals. Highlights:

· 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.

· Minnesota's leader Taj McWilliams-Franklin, who turns 42 on Saturday, Oct. 20, discusses her career longevity and her balancing act of juggling motherhood with hoops.

A year removed from their first franchise WNBA title, the Lynx entered the 2012 playoffs as the top seed in the Western Conference with an overall record of 27-7. 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.

Indiana entered the 2012 WNBA playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference with a 22-12 overall mark. In both the Eastern Conference Semifinals and the Finals, Indiana took both Atlanta and Connecticut, respectively, to three games before winning the deciding contest.
