Tuesday Evening Game Thread: Liberty Host The Lynx, Mercury Take On Young Shock Team, Sparks & Storm Rematch

The three games tonight are all on WNBA LiveAccess and should be entertaining at the very least.

The Liberty get a chance to prove themselves against someone not named the Sun. The challenge is that the Lynx are not exactly a break: the Lynx are a very good offensive rebounding team and the Liberty weren't a particularly good defensive rebounding team last season. It could be a long night for the home fans.

Phoenix Mercury at Tulsa Shock (8 p.m. EDT)

This one should be fun. Last year, we might've said that it would feature much defense. This year, new Shock coach Gary Kloppenburg appears to be trying to instill a defensive mindset and young talent that appears to have a brighter future ahead than they did last season. It also marks the first time that Shock point guard Temeka Johnson will face her old team.

Seattle Storm at Los Angeles Sparks (10:30 p.m. EDT)

After the Storm blew a 21-point third quarter lead to the Sparks on opening night, the two teams rematch in L.A. tonight. But the big story was not so much that the Sparks came back but that they were markedly better on the defensive end in Seattle without veteran post player Nicky Anosike in the lineup.

Feel free to add your additional links, insights, and other completely irrelevant thoughts in the comments. It's a game thread - have some fun.
