#4 Indiana Fever at #1 Chicago Sky in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, 7:00 PM ET

The Random SB Nation Song of the Day: Here's Lana Del Rey and Cedric Gervais with a dance remix of "Summertime Sadness." The original version can be watched here.

The Defending Champs are the lower seed, taking on the top seeded team in the East, but that team is also in the postseason for the first time ever.  We'll see if the Sky can still pull it off though.

#4 Seattle Storm at #1 Minnesota Lynx in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals, 9:00 PM ET

Tayler Hill's hometown team (mandatory Mystics Appeal reference, as Nate has alluded to) will start their road toward a third straight Western Conference championship by playing against the same team they beat in the first round of the Playoffs last year.  I personally see Minny sweeping this Storm team, but who knows, maybe the Green and Gold will serve me crow next week.

That's all I have.  Enjoy the games!
