1. Atlanta Dream (14-9) at Washington Mystics (12-15), 7:00 PM ET
This is on Monumental Network in the DC area. And Zack did the preview.
The Dream goes for 4-4 in games against the Mystics tonight. There's one more game next week against ATL on the road. I'm not really into thinking about the Mystics, at least this current team right now though, and I blame SB Nation NBA as to why. I'm still carried away by "What-If" scenarios involving this team and the positive scenarios that would have come out from it.
If this game gets really ugly against DC, I think I may just re-read that post to live a dream. It's a lot better than drinking away sadness I hear. But then again, this Mystics team is putting me on an emotional roller coaster this season.
And also about What-Ifs, don't just pose a question. That is the easy part. We want to see how you re-write history in a FanPost preferably. I may do another one not too long from now from more recent times, but we're all fans in this together and I know you guys wish you could re-write history in favor of your favorite team in some way, shape, or form.
2. San Antonio Silver Stars (9-16) at Tulsa Shock (8-18), 8:00 PM ET
It's on NBA TV because of Skylar Diggins and because the WNBA's evil hashtag.
Both teams are likely lottery bound unless the Seattle Storm collapses from a win and loss perspective. But still I think it's a must win for both teams, at least for their pride if nothing else.

3. New York Liberty (10-15) at Chicago Sky (18-8), 8:30 PM ET
The Sky goes for the sweep against the Libs. Should it happen, it could help the Liberty get closer to the lottery and help them get a potential major young piece for 2014. In addition, EDD, Big Syl, Piph, and the gang should basically punch their tickets for the playoffs tonight.
4. Seattle Storm (12-13) at Phoenix Mercury (14-12), 10:00 PM ET
This is also on NBA TV.
The Storm goes for the sweep against the Mercury, which would be a major accomplishment for their 2013 season from a win and loss perspective. Nate and the other regulars can fill in what else I want to say. I will add this though. The Storm also faces Coach Pennell for the first time this season, so maybe things won't be so easy.
If the Mercury wins tonight, you'd think that they'd like to get to 20 wins for the year as a goal.
So that's all I have. Enjoy the games as you start this weekend!
