Two games on the schedule tonight and for fans of non-playoff NBA fans, a big day: the draft lottery selection.
Feel free to jump into the comments with your insights, observations, and links - or just ranting - but some basic information after the jump.
After Saturday's debacle against the Tulsa Shock, Mystics fans are just looking for signs of life. The Lynx have the uncanny ability to suppress such signs in their opponents, but any sign of organization offensively would be welcome - defensively, the Mystics have done quite well for themselves thus far this season.
This should be a competitive game between two teams that should be playoff-bound, but are just about average relative to their peers. And in the early going, they're both suffering from the same problem: high turnover rates. Rebounding and turnovers will likely decide this game and, based on the recent past at least, the Silver Stars would seem to be the team more likely to overcome the early problem.
After years of traveling to their summer home in Secaucus, NJ for the NBA Draft Lottery, the Golden State Warriors will travel to the draft lottery's new location in New York this time to determine their draft fate - if they finish seventh or above in the draft order, they keep their pick. If they finish 8, 9, or 10 their pick is conveyed to the Utah Jazz due to a trade for a point guard that contributed about as much to the team as you have for your favorite WNBA team.
I'm still very upset about this trade, so this is a big night. Over at SB Nation's Golden State of Mind, Sleepy Freud has posted a graphic with the odds of everything from keeping the pick to landing the first pick: 275 Reasons to Be Worried (and 725 to Be Enthused).
Some guy named LeBron is apparently playing in this game. More importantly, Ray Allen is a warrior.
