Happy Father's Day everyone! Here are the games that are on the docket:

1. New York Liberty (3-7) at Connecticut Sun (5-6), 1 p.m. ET

The Sun has won three games in a row heading into this one, while the Libs on the other hand... yeah, this season hasn't started out on the right note.

2. Phoenix Mercury (8-2) at Minnesota Lynx (6-3), 1 p.m. ET

You can watch this game on ESPN2. The top two teams in the WNBA square off in a nationally televised contest. Last year, the Lynx had their way against the Mercury, but this year, it won't be so easy.

3. Atlanta Dream (6-3) at Washington Mystics (5-5), 4 p.m. ET

You can watch this on Monumental Network or Comcast SportsNet if you are in the D.C. area.

The Dream is coming off of a win on Friday against the Lynx, while the Mystics are coming off a big win of their own against the Sky. A win for the Dream will give them more breathing room at the top of the East, while for the Mystics, a win here puts them back above .500. These two teams will meet again in Atlanta on Wednesday.

4. Seattle Storm (5-7) at Tulsa Shock (3-5), 4:30 p.m. ET

Both of these teams had rough starts to the season. They also were losing most of those games on the road. The Storm won three of their last four games, and two of those wins were on the road, and that certainly is a good reason why they would win this game. But the Shock has won three in a row, all of those games at home. I could go either way with this game.

After the WNBA games are over, Game 5 of the NBA Finals are on between the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat. Game time is at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The Spurs lead the series, 3-1. If the Spurs win, they win the 2013-14 NBA championship.

Enjoy the games everyone!
