Update: This matchup features the return of Sparks forward Candace Parker, the 2008 WNBA most valuable player and rookie of the year, who missed much of last season after sustaining a season-ending shoulder injury in June. It also highlights the debut of Maya Moore, a two-time national champion at Connecticut who was selected by the Lynx with the top overall pick in the 2011 draft. Last season, the teams finished with identical records, and the Sparks edged the Lynx for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
