The Fever are 1-1 on the western road trip after Monday night's 73-77 loss to the Los Angeles Sparks.
In their last game against the Storm, played June 11 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the Fever's Erlana Larkins guided the team to a 76-68. Larkins dominated the game scoring 17 points while grabbing 11 rebounds. Seattle has struggled lately; its six-game losing streak is the longest active streak in the league. Home court advantage appears to pay dividends for the Storm, however, as five of the team's nine wins this season have come at home.
Thursday's game could be a big night for Fever All-Star Tamika Catchings. She sits 15 points away from becoming the No. 3 scorer in WNBA history. Catchings who currently has 6,438 career points would move past 2008 Finals MVP Katie Smith (6,452) on the all-time scoring list.
Tipoff time is set for 10 p.m. July 31 at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington. The game will be broadcasted on NBA-TV and can be heard on 1070 AM The Fan.
