Join in on the live game thread as Holly takes a break from the slots at Mohegan Sun to cover the game live and in person and Jessica paces from her living room in Oklahoma and begs that the Shock fare better against Eastern Conference teams.

Who: The Tulsa Shock visit Uncansville to take on the Connecticut Sun

What: The first meeting between the two teams in the 2011 season, Tulsa is coming off a 31-point loss to San Antonio on Friday night. The Sun are looking to rebound from a 78-75 loss dealt by Chicago where Sylvia Fowles poured in 23 points. Fowles broke the tie and sealed the Sky victory with a fade away jumper with 28 seconds to play and a made free throw with three ticks left.

Where: 3:00 p.m. EST, Mohegan Sun Arena | Online: LiveAccess

The Story: I think 'the (fun) story' might be the point-counterpoint between former co-workers turned co-writers, Holly and Jess. The basketball story ... TBD on the Tulsa side, to be sure. Last season, the Sun knocked off the Shock in both regular-season meetings, with a 101-89 victory in Tulsa on June 29th followed by a 90-62 drubbing in Connecticut on August 17th.
