Open Thread: Tripleheader at 7:00 PM ET

New, 177 comments

Three games tonight. Watch on LiveAccess and one is also on NBA TV.

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

1. Minnesota Lynx (20-7) at New York Liberty (11-16), 7:00 PM ET

If you're in the NYC area, watch MSG Plus.

I don't have too much to add to this game, given that the Liberty must win tonight in order to have a chance competing in the playoffs. But that said, it's pretty unlikely when they're facing the best team in the league.

2. Seattle Storm (13-14) at San Antonio Silver Stars (10-17), 8:00 PM ET

They played last Sunday with the Stars winning and will look to get another tonight.

3. Connecticut Sun (7-19) at Los Angeles Sparks (19-8), 10:30 PM ET

This is on NBA TV for those of you who are more into "old media."

If the Sparks win, they get a 20th win and give the Sun its 20th loss. Even with Connecticut's season looking like a wash at this point, hopefully they make this contest somewhat interesting especially when you consider that the Sparks had to go to double overtime to beat the Tulsa Shock.

ESPN Nine for IX Film - "Branded", 8:00 PM ET, on ESPN

This film talks about the branding issues women's athletes have vs. men's athletes and where many top athletes are arguably viewed for their sex appeal, etc as much as their performance on their games.

A clip of this film actually shows a lot of WNBA in there, so if you aren't interested in checking tonight's games out, and are really into sports and society, etc., this is a film to see and you can still tell us what's going on. I only hope they don't show so much Big Three bias.

In addition, ESPN's Kate Fagan has her take on it here.

The Random SB Nation Song of the Day

Here's Justin Timberlake's latest hit "Mirrors." It won the MTV Music Video Award for Video of the Year for 2013.

It beat out Macklemore & Lewis' "Thrift Shop"; Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines"; Bruno Mar's "Locked Out of Heaven," and Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble." That's a pretty tough list to beat. And also we saw this!

*NSYNC had a reunion! Take that ONE DIRECTION!

Despite the fact that Timberlake had a great day and Taylor also won an award too, like her song said, we knew there would be trouble knowing what MTV often comes up with like Super Bowl halftime show in 2004.... Miley Cyrus had a pretty risque performance to say the least starting with her own song "We Can't Stop" and then twerking on Robin Thicke with "Blurred Lines" and she kept dancing when he sang "Give It 2 U" with rapper 2 Chainz. I wish I could take some of my life back after watching that.

That's all I have on my plate. Enjoy tonight's game!
