Sunday Open Thread: Five Games Starting at 3 PM Eastern/12 PM Pacific

Five games today all afternoon and evening long. Every team except the Sky and Dream will play today.

All games are on LiveAccess for online streaming unless you are living in the home team's market or if I say that it's on local TV. LiveAccess costs $4.99 and your credit card/Paypal will be charged by NBA League Pass when you purchase it.

1. Washington Mystics (1-3) at Connecticut Sun (3-1) at 3 PM ET/12 PM PT | Mystics Preview

Both the Mystics and Sun are coming off losses to the Sky and Lynx respectively. The Mystics want to get a win after back to back losses in the closing seconds. The Sun wants to bounce back after losing to the still undefeated Lynx. This is the first of five matchups between these Eastern Conference teams.

If you live in Connecticut, the game is on CPTV.

2. Tulsa Shock (0-5) at Phoenix Mercury (1-4) at 6 PM ET/3 PM Arizona Time | Shock Preview

The Shock has played well overall this season with a talent deprived roster which we all know, but there are no wins to show for it. Tulsa will go against a Mercury team that will be without its top two stars, so I at least will be hoping that the Shock can get a win today, though the Mercury already won the first matchup.

3. Indiana Fever (4-0) at NY Liberty (0-5) at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT | Fever Preview

This is a back to back series between these two teams, with the Fever winning at Bankers Life 91-68 last night, and tonight, the Libs will play at Prudential and hope to get some revenge and bounce back from its worst start in franchise history. I hope they can win this one, but the schedule won't get noticeably easier until Friday, June 8 when they travel to Verizon Center to play the Mystics.

If you live in the NYC/Newark/Long Island, NY/Bridgeport, CT areas, turn on MSG to watch this game.

4. San Antonio Silver Stars (2-2) at Minnesota Lynx (6-0) at 7 PM ET/6 PM Local Time/4 PM PT | Lynx Preview | Stars Preview

The Stars travel to Minneapolis and hope to play at least as competitively as the Mystics did last Wednesday and better. Minny wants to continue playing Lynx basketball, which is to pounce on its prey from tipoff to the final buzzer. This is the first of five matchups for the two teams.

If you're in San Antonio, turn onto Fox Sports SW, and if you're in Minneapolis, turn on Fox Sports North.

5. Seattle Storm (1-3) at LA Sparks (4-1) at 8:30 PM ET/5:30 PT (My game of the day!) | Storm Preview | Sparks Preview

These two Western Conference arch rivals have already battled twice in their first two games of the season. Today is their third matchup and we still have two more matches after this. At any rate, the Storm wants to bounce back into playoff contention and continue positive momentum after its win against the Tulsa Shock. As for LA, the Sparks want to create more separation between themselves, and the rest of the Western teams not named the Lynx. I'm really impressed with Toliver especially for the Sparks, and I hope her play continues tonight. Sorry Storm fans.

If you're at Staples, tonight is Gospel Night. Kurt Carr will sing after the game. If you're in LA, turn on KDOC to watch the game. If you're in Seattle, turn on KONG.

NBA Eastern Conference Finals Game 4

#2 Miami Heat at #4 Boston Celtics at 8:30 PM ET/5:30 PM PT on ESPN and (Heat leads 2-1) | Celtics Preview | | Miami Herald | Boston Herald

I don't like admitting it, but LeBron James has played very well statistically in this series, averaging over 30 pts, 10 boards, and 5 assists so far. Dwyane Wade has also averaged 21 points, and 5 assists in the Eastern Finals as well. For the Celtics, the player who has impressed me the most is actually Rajon Rondo, not KG, even though he has turned back the hands of time, like Tim Duncan has for the west. This game is at home for the Celtics, so I'm picking the team in Green to even the series tonight. I'll watch this game at the same time as the Storm/Sparks game.

Concluding Thoughts

Comment on the thread, chuckle at the repetitive PSA's and commericals, and most of all, enjoy the basketball.
