The Storm play the Minnesota Lynx in their season opener at Climate Pledge Arena tomorrow night.

Why it matters: After a season of rebuilding last year following Sue Bird's retirement, the Seattle team beat the Phoenix Mercury 85-59 last week in their second win of the preseason.

Who to watch: Jewell Loyd and Nneka Ogwumike are among ESPN's top 25 WNBA players.

  • With Skylar Diggins-Smith, Nika Mühl, Ezi Magbegor, Sami Whitcomb and last year's rookie Jordan Horston, the season looks off to a promising start.

If you go: Tickets for the 7pm game start around $25.

Editor's note: This story was corrected to omit Joyner Holmes, who was dropped this week, and Jade Melbourne, who was traded to the Mystics.
