Talk about the four games here.

Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you enjoyed the fireworks, and we now head back to basketball.

1. San Antonio Stars (9-9) at Indiana Fever (8-9), 5 p.m. ET

The Stars try to get above .500 yet again, while the Fever tried to get back there. Oddly enough, being .500 will get an Eastern Conference team home court advantage in the playoffs...

There will be good news for the Fever, as Tamika Catchings is expected to make her season debut tonight.

2. Washington Mystics (7-11) at Atlanta Dream (11-5), 7 p.m. ET

This is on SportSouth if you're in the Atlanta area. The Mystics try to stop their bleeding in the standings, but they unfortunately start their five-game road trip against the Eastern Conference's best team. Then, Atlanta has won every game so far in the series.

3. Connecticut Sun (8-10) at Tulsa Shock (7-10), 8 p.m. ET

This is on CPTV Sports if you're in the Connecticut market. This game is the second half of a home-and-home between the two teams, with the Shock winning the first game last Thursday.

4. Chicago Sky (8-9) at Seattle Storm (7-12), 10 p.m. ET

This is on KONG TV in the Seattle area and NBA TV nationally. The Sky finish a five-game road trip by facing off against a Storm team that will be playing 10 of its last 15 games at home. Given that the Storm has played well at KeyArena, even during down years, this is by no means an "easy" game for the injury-plagued Sky.

That's all I have. Enjoy the games tonight.
