WNBA Playoff Elimination Open Thread: Fever vs. Liberty, Storm vs. Mercury On ESPN2/3

This is it.

Winner goes on, loser goes home (or rather, off to Europe).

Although these Game 3 situations can be nerve racking for fans of these individual teams, it is the type of exciting situation that any sports fan hopes for.

Who: Indiana Fever vs. New York Liberty

When: 8 p.m. EDT - ESPN2/ESPN3.com

Where: Phillips Arena - Atlanta, GA

What: The Fever host the Liberty for Game 3 with a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals to face the Atlanta Dream on the line. Of note in this series - in keeping with their regular season series - the team that gets to the line more often wins the game.

Where: KeyArena - Seattle, WA

What: Whereas there has been some consistency in the Fever - Liberty series this season, you never really know what to expect from the Storm and Mercury. But the Mercury played an outstanding defensive game on Saturday and if they can repeat that they might be able to break the spell of KeyArena.
