WNBA Open Thread - Thursday Twinbill: Atlanta @ Washington, Phoenix @ San Antonio

As the WNBA regular season winds down, the playoff picture must get clearer, right? Right, I say?? Today's games feature two fourth-place teams in their respective divisions (San Antonio and Atlanta), a team that can clinch their spot tonight (Phoenix) and a team that ... oh wait - I guess we can't talk about the Mystics and the 2011 playoffs (sorry Wiz, I feel your pain) other than in a spoiler role. Anyway, leave your comments in pictures and words on the thread to be archived for all eternity!

Atlanta (16-13) at Washington (5-24)

The Dream, sitting fourth in the East, need a win at Washington to keep a firm grasp on their playoff spot. While it’s nearly impossible the Sky can catch them at this point, a Dream loss to conference-foe Washington would make that near impossibility seem less far-fetched. Atlanta can’t rest easy tonight, however, as their three games with the Mystics have all been decided by 8 points or less. Atlanta’s magic number to punch their ticket to playoffs is 2.

Phoenix (17-12)  at San Antonio (14-15)

The Silver Stars need to defend their home court tonight and continue to win in order to stay in their fourth-place spot in the West. With a loss, San Antonio will be just one slim game ahead of LA. Phoenix holds firm at second, after halting the Tulsa streak on Tuesday and stands to clinch a playoff berth with a road win. Penny Taylor, who didn’t play against the Shock, called her injury minor and said she was day-to-day but DeWanna Bonner is more than ready, if needed.
