WNBA Playoffs Open Thread: Dream vs. Sun at 3 pm EDT, Silver Stars vs. Lynx at 5 pm EDT on ESPN2

Two possible elimination games today, beginning with the Atlanta Dream taking on the Connecticut Sun at home up 1-0 and the Minnesota Lynx with the opportunity to win their first playoff series with a win in San Antonio.

With the playoffs upon us, two SBN NBA sites with high hopes this season (Canis Hoopus & Peachtree Hoops) have been running game threads. So look there during and after the games to see what fans of those teams have to say, but we'll also host our normal thread here.

Where: Phillips Arena - Atlanta, GA

What: Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals matchup between the two. Of note: the Sun were tied for the worst road record of any playoff team this season.
