Open Thread: Friday Tripleheader starting at 8:00 PM ET

Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports

LiveAccess is on a free trial through August 4, or this Sunday and will air all games tonight. Three games to be exact.

1. San Antonio Silver Stars (6-12) at Minnesota Lynx (14-3), 8:00 PM ET

This game is also on NBA TV. The Lynx look to continue on another tear in the second half of the season as they get ready for the playoffs. San Antonio however will likely be looking to rebuild for 2014 and beyond.

2. Los Angeles Sparks (12-6) at Tulsa Shock (6-14), 8:00 PM ET

Both teams return for their first games back since the All-Star Break, and the Shock has played more games than everyone, so every game from hereon is just a bit more important than most other teams in the league, assuming they're still trying to get into the postseason.

3. Washington Mystics (9-10) at Chicago Sky (12-5), 8:30 PM ET

The Mystics lost their last game this past Wednesday to the New York Liberty. The Sky wants to get back at DC for their loss two Wednesdays ago, and to be honest, they should have won that game. BIG.

The Random SB Nation Song of the Day

Lil Wayne is at Verizon Center today. Here's his first notable song, which is "Tha Block is Hot" which is from back in the day.

You can see his most recent hit, "Rich as F*** " here.
