Game (thread) of the Night: Seattle Storm (11-2) vs. Indiana Fever (8-4)

Who: The Storm are hosting the Fever

When: 7:00 p.m. PST

Where: Key Arena - Seattle,WA

TV/Radio/Internet: 

The Story: No knock against Freelantz and the Tulsa Shock, but this has to be considered the biggest game of the night and one that many people will look to as a 1-2 battle for the right to be considered the "Best in the League". The Fever beat the Storm last week in Indiana so this is a chance at some early season payback before as things shake out for the season.

Links below, live blog in the comments, and feel free to jump in with your insights -- I can't see everything from behind the basket on media row!

In addition to the earlier preview on Swish Appeal, here are a few other perspectives on tonight’s game:

- Jayda Evans adds that Seattle wants to prove that they’re the best defensive team in the WNBA in her preview for the Seattle Times.

- Kevin Pelton of StormBasketball.com has more on the Fever and an update on the knee injury Sue Bird suffered on Sunday (the knee is fine).

- Steve Cram, a native of Australia, who has been traveling to all 30 NBA cities and authors the "Traveling Sports Fan" blog will be in attendance tonight to watch the four Australian players at tonight’s game.

My next chance to see Australians in action will be this coming Friday, when I head south to Seattle to watch the Storm take on the Fever of Indiana. The Fever’s starting PG is Australian Opals veteran Tully Bevilaqua, while the Storm feature three Australians, including the most successful basketball player ever from down under, Lauren Jackson. The two teams are both in form, so as well as being a chance to support the players from my country, I should also be treated to a great game of basketball.

- Just for more Storm greatness, Pelton also informs us that Lauren Jackson has been nominated for an ESPY.
