Unless you follow the Sparks and/or Fever, your team is playing today. Two games on NBA TV. All on LiveAccess.

I've been harsh on Lynx guard Sugar Rodgers, but I think she's happy to be on a winning team in the Twin Cities, and same goes for Monica Wright who's behind her!

1. Connecticut Sun (6-14) at Washington Mystics (10-13), 4:00 PM ET

The Random SB Nation Song of the Day: Here's some more punk rock with Blink-182 back in the day with "All the Small Things."

It's on NBA TV but if you're in Connecticut, turn on CPTV, and if you're in DC you gotta watch on the computer through Monumental Network.

DC won the first matchup between these teams when Mike Thibault returned to the Casino. That also happened to be during the Mystics' 4-1 start to the season.

Also, the Mystics are giving their annual season ticket holder giveaway which has been the case since last Sunday if I remember right. It's an autographed basketball by our favorite rookie who doesn't wear a mohawk.

2. Tulsa Shock (7-16) at Phoenix Mercury (11-11), 6:00 PM ET

This is also on NBA TV and it shouldn't be. It's only because of Griner and Diggins and the term that shall never be mentioned on this site.

Nothing much to add from Friday, but the Shock can definitely use a win today.

3. Minnesota Lynx (17-4) at Chicago Sky (14-7), 6:00 PM ET

This game should be on NBA TV, NOT Shock vs. Mercury Part II. With the Lynx losing to DC last Thursday, I fully expect a fired up performance tonight. Easy game of the day. This could be the WNBA Finals right here.

4. New York Liberty (9-13) at Atlanta Dream (11-6), 6:00 PM ET

The Liberty after losing to the Sparks by a lot head down to ATL and need to win tonight in order to keep their playoff hopes alive, but as I said a number of times before, winning now isn't in their best interest.

5. San Antonio Silver Stars (8-14) at Seattle Storm (9-12), 9:00 PM ET

Nothing to repeat from Friday. This is de ja vu squared. Phoenix and Tulsa played on Friday and today, and now these two teams did the same.

That is all I have at this point, so enjoy watching a lot of basketball today as the weekend comes to a close.
