WNBA Saturday Open Thread: Tripleheader starts at 7 p.m. ET

Steven Bisig-US PRESSWIRE

There is a tripleheader of games Saturday. Talk about them here.

Happy Saturday everyone, and the long weekend is finally underway. Let's get straight to the games on the docket.

1. Seattle Storm (0-3) at Washington Mystics (1-1), 7 p.m. ET

Let's call this the Game of the Night, even though it doesn't involve two of the best teams record-wise in this young season. Crystal Langhorne returns to her stomping grounds, and should receive a warm welcome back by the Mystics' fans. The Mystics have played competitively in their games so far, and go for their first winning streak of the season. Considering how the Storm has stumbled off the gate this season so far, Washington should be favored to win this one, but expect Langhorne to be motivated to win this one too.

In the D.C. area, you must watch this on Monumental Network.

2. New York Liberty (1-1) at Minnesota Lynx (3-0), 8 p.m. ET

The Lynx will face their toughest opponent yet as they host the new-look Liberty. With Minnesota in particular, we have been impressed with rookie Damiris Dantas, but Maya Moore has been playing at a really, really high level so far, where she has been averaging 35 points a game and 11.3 rebounds a game so far. Let's see how long she can continue playing at this level.

3. Atlanta Dream (2-0) at Chicago Sky (3-0), 8 p.m. ET

This match will be against the two teams at the top of the East so far. If the Mystics weren't playing Crystal Langhorne and the Storm, this would probably be my pick for the Game of the Night. There's a good chance that both teams could be meeting each other in the Eastern Conference Finals. This is the first of five regular season matches between the teams, so it's definitely a game worth checking out.

Song of the Day

Lang's coming home today, so this song came to mind.

That's all I have, so enjoy tonight's games!
