There are three undefeated teams left in the WNBA right now and with the Connecticut Sun hosting the Minnesota Lynx, one of them has to take their first loss of the season.
That will be the first of a four-game night on WNBA LiveAccess tonight.
We already posted some preview links this morning, but brief info and more links after the jump.
Game 1: Connecticut Sun vs. Minnesota Lynx, 7 p.m. EDT
Allison Hightower has been getting plenty of praise for her ability as a defensive stopper and the Lynx should put that reputation to the test with Seimone Augustus and Maya Moore on the wings. Yet perhaps most important, as disappointed as Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve was after the Lynx' last outing in Washington, we can probably expect them to come out focused tonight.
Game 2: San Antonio Silver Stars vs. Phoenix Mercury, 8 p.m. EDT
Peachtree Hoops recap of the Mercury's loss to the Atlanta Dream last night.
Not to equate the two, but both the Mercury and Silver Stars had difficult outings last time out, but the Mercury look to be headed for an even rougher patch without star guard Diana Taurasi. Nate J. Butler of SBN's Peachtree Hoops offered a quarter-by-quarter breakdown of the 78-62 loss last night which is Dream-heavy but still underscores the point: it's going to be a while before they find a rhythm without Taurasi and Taylor.
Game 3: Chicago Sky vs. Washington Mystics, 8:30 p.m. EDT
Mystics fans seem to be saying this every game now, but after feeling good about their performance against the Lynx, tonight they have an opportunity to build on that momentum. For the Sky, the fact that they managed to hold on to the ball a little better in their last outing doesn't bode well for the Mystics.
Game 4: Seattle Storm vs. Tulsa Shock, 10:00 p.m. EDT
The night will begin with an undefeated team experiencing the agony of defeat for the first time this season and will end with a winless team experiencing the thrill of victory for the first time. What to watch tonight: turnovers. Nobody in the league is forcing them more often than the Shock and the Storm have had their struggles with them.
