The Minnesota Lynx will play their first two home games of the WNBA playoffs at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
The Lynx said Monday the games will be moved from their usual home court because of scheduling conflicts at Target Center in Minneapolis. The games will take place in late September.
The Lynx have clinched home court advantage throughout the playoffs. As a result, the team will receive a bye through the first two single-elimination rounds.
Minnesota will begin with home court advantage in the WNBA semifinals. The semifinal round is a best-of-five format, guaranteeing at least two home games for the Lynx.
Two-game playoff packs go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. and include tickets to each of the first two home games.
