Open Thread: The Minnesota Lynx visits the Phoenix Mercury at 7:00 PM Arizona and Pacific Time

USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the Minnesota Lynx (4-1) will play against the Phoenix Mercury (3-3) at 7:00 PM Arizona and Pacific Time or 10:00 Eastern. Game's only on LiveAccess.

With the Mercury now at 3-3, this is a chance for DT and the gang to get past .500 for the first time this season, where they hope to remain for the rest of the season. As for Minnesota, they're still the best team in the WNBA and I'm giving them the edge tonight regardless.

On yesterday's Choke Job by the San Antonio Spurs

I said Spurs in Seven, and I am still saying that the Spurs win tomorrow as the Big Three has their last hurrah, and I think it will be. If any other team in the NBA was 20 seconds away from winning the championship and managed to do what I saw last night, Thursday is a guaranteed beat down by the Miami Heat. But the Spurs are the toughest team mentally in all of professional basketball. Yesterday was a horrendous job I saw in the closing seconds both with missed free throws by Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard, and Tim Duncan on the bench when there could have been crucial rebounding opportunities. That said, Gregg Popovich could do this. I don't know how, and that's why he's the coach.

I have no comment on LeBron's headband-less performance. It's just a headband.

So, even though it looks like it's not happening tomorrow, I'm going with the Spurs and am going down with the ship! Go Spurs Go! Go Spurs Go!
