Happy Sunday! We have three games today starting at 3:00 PM ET as teams look to gain playoff positioning. One is on NBA TV.

1. Washington Mystics (12-13) at Atlanta Dream (12-9), 3:00 PM ET

The Random SB Nation Song of the Day: Like Icona Pop signs in their song in more colorful terms, I am a 90's guy. Here is Third Eye Blind with "Semi-Charmed Life."

This is on NBA TV.

The Mystics with a win today will be .500 for the first time since the All-Star break, and also have more total wins at this point in time over ATL. They also would have their best winning streak of the season at four games.

2. Connecticut Sun (7-16) at Chicago Sky (16-8), 6:00 PM ET

If the Sky wins today, it would be the team's franchise record for wins in a season. Also this would guarantee Chicago their first .500 or better record. A lot more at stake here than what some may think. As for Connecticut, I think it's better to just wait for next year.

3. New York Liberty (10-14) at Minnesota Lynx (17-6), 7:00 PM ET

If the Lynx loses tonight, this marks their fourth straight loss, which I find to be a shocker. But I believe that they will answer the bell by winning tonight convincingly, in order to maintain their hold on first place in the Western Conference.

So that's all I have on my plate. Enjoy the games everyone!
