Unless you are a Lynx or Storm fan, your team is playing tonight. The Lynx and Storm play tomorrow. One game is on NBA TV, some on local TV, and all on LiveAccess.

All of them are playing tonight, but not on the same team of course.

1. Washington Mystics (14-15) at Connecticut Sun (7-22), 7:00 PM ET

The Washington Mystics could get in the playoffs tonight and get back to .500. Odds are in favor of that happening. Here's a video between Monumental Network's Casey Phillips and forward Crystal Langhorne.  If you're on a mobile device, click here.

If the Mystics are in the playoffs, it will open up a new set of questions at that time and after the season is over, some of which you can guess I'll ask, but we'll visit that time when we get there.

And here's the Monumental Today report from last Wednesday which highlighted the Mystics' trip to Salamander Resort in Middleburg, VA, which opened last Thursday, where guests like David Gergen and John Wall attended.

2. Atlanta Dream (16-13) at New York Liberty (11-19), 7:30 PM ET

The Random SB Nation Song of the Day: Here is Bruno Mars with "Treasure." Just one bad word in the beginning.

The Dream is now in the playoffs and is on a two game winning streak. Is it enough to keep this team in the second seed for the East?

3. Los Angeles Sparks (21-10) at Tulsa Shock (10-20), 8:00 PM ET

This is the NBA TV game.

The Shock has a chance to go 2-3 against the Sparks, losers of two straight. Also, with the team officially out of the playoffs, perhaps the black and gold could try to play a bit of spoiler on the Sparks by trying to make sure that they don't earn the number one seed.

4. Indiana Fever (13-16) at Chicago Sky (21-8), 8:30 PM ET

This is the last regular season meeting between these two teams. With the Sky on a six game winning streak heading to tonight, it will be tough to beat Fowles, EDD. Prince, and the gang... for the regular season.

5. San Antonio Silver Stars (11-19) at Phoenix Mercury (15-13), 10:00 PM ET

The Mercury will ice the playoffs tonight with a win here. That also means that the Stars will get a potential reprieve from the "Treadmill of Mediocrity."

That's all I got. Enjoy the plethora of basketball games on tonight.
