Chicago vs NY Chicago needs to win if they have any hope of getting into the playoffs.
Indiana vs Atlanta. Atlanta needs to win insure they make the playoffs.

If Chicago wins and Atlanta loses Chicago is only one game behind both NY and Atlanta to get into the playoffs.

Sparks vs the Storm. Sparks have to win and hope San Antonio beats the Sun if they have any prayer of making the playoffs.

I read also that Minnesota could clinch home court throughout the playoffs with a win and an Indiana loss tonight. I thought they were maybe 1 or 2 games away from that possibility but that's just what I read in the Star Tribune.

Don't the Sparks want a San Antonio LOSS? They are only 1.5 games behind S.A.

If Minnesota wins and Indiana loses, they will be 4 games apart in the loss column with 4 to go. That will be a clincher if they own the tiebreaker. The Lynx have already clinched homecourt in the West. Go Maya!

well i know the Sun will probably clinch a playoff spot eventually, but after losing to Tulsa they are now getting crushed by San Antonio. something is wrong there and they hopefully straighten it out soon...

Sun again fail to make up ground on the Fever as they lose to San Antonio. If they were a better road team, they could have won the Eastern Division.

Liberty and Atlanta win, making it unlikely that Chicago will make the playoffs..

Even though Minnesota won and Indiana lost, ESPN.com says the Lynx are still 1 game away from
clinching over the Fever.

something is wrong with the Sun. losing to Tulsa and getting blown out by SA (a team that was on a 6 game losing streak) is not the way to end the season...

The Sun are really a very young team. Two of its starters are playing in their 2nd WNBA season, one starter is playing in her 1st, and one is playing in her 3rd (second with the Sun). Youth isn't always served in the WNBA; more often it's served up.

Nice quote!

Didn't the Sun have a late season collapse last year as well? It is difficult playing on the road.
