The Storm announced today a pair of preseason games. On Friday, May 11 the Storm will play at Tulsa. Two days later, the Storm hosts the rival Los Angeles Sparks at KeyArena on Sunday, May 13. That game will be a preview of the season opener five days later, when the Storm will also play L.A., though the two rosters will have a different feel to them by that point.
One intriguing note about the Storm-Sparks game: It will likely mark the first matchup between this year’s top two draft picks. Los Angeles holds the No. 1 overall pick in the April 16 Draft, while the Storm will pick second.
