WNBA Friday Game Thread: Four games starting at 7 p.m. ET

Discuss tonight's games here.

Here are the games on the docket for Friday. We have a full slate where both East and West coast folks can watch a game without having to leave work early or staying up too late.

1. Indiana Fever (3-3) at Washington Mystics (4-2), 7 p.m. ET

In the DC area, watch it on Monumental Network or on Comcast SportsNet.

The Mystics have had the Fever's number since the preseason, so they may be favored to win this game. However, the Fever has won three straight games heading into this contest, and haven't been as turnover prone as the Mystics have been in their three game winning streak. Still, if the Mystics win this one, it would make people reconsider their preseason beliefs on this team, especially if they counted them out.

One more thing that is pretty amazing for the Mystics. Should they win tonight and the Sky loses, the Mystics would be tied for first place in the East.

I leave you with another one of Mike Thibault's "tell it how it is" pressers, this one right after the Connecticut Sun game Thursday, from Monumental Network.

2. Phoenix Mercury (4-1) at Tulsa Shock (0-5), 8 p.m. ET

The Mercury has had a great start to this season. The Shock on the other hand has more major young pieces, a new coach with Finals experience, and the same losing results like they did in the last two seasons under Gary Kloppenburg's regime.

Considering that the Washington Mystics also have a very young team, less talent than the Shock, and are finding ways to win games, that certainly doesn't make things any better. Yes, the Mystics are in the Eastern Conference, but they did beat the Sparks.

3. Los Angeles Sparks (2-3) at Chicago Sky (5-1), 8:30 p.m.

The U Too has this game on in the Chicago area. And the LA area has this game on Time Warner Cable SportsNet.

This is the game of the night because of the starpower. The Sparks should be at least 3-2 right now, but lost two straight games to the Mystics and Dream. That Mystics loss probably is still haunting this team. As for the Sky, their record is really good right now, but they've played every game at home except for one so far. Five of their next seven games are also at home, so it's imperative that they continue to take care of business early.

4. Minnesota Lynx (7-0) at Seattle Storm (2-6), 10 p.m. ET

In Seattle, watch this on LiveWell. I guess Minny is going to lose a game at some point, right?

That is all I have. Enjoy the games everyone.
