WNBA Friday Open Thread: Four games starting at 7 p.m. ET

Four games tonight.


Here are the games that are on the docket now that the work week is over:

1. Connecticut Sun (8-6) at Washington Mystics (6-9). 7 p.m. ET

Watch this on WCTX if you're in the Connecticut area. If you're in the DMV, you have to watch on Monumental Network.

After a long road trip, the Mystics try to make up some ground against the Sun, who they beat earlier this season. However, Connecticut has been playing as well as anyone in the league, while the Mystics have been in relative free fall until last Tuesday, when they beat San Antonio.

2. Phoenix Mercury (9-3) at Indiana Fever (6-7), 7 p.m. ET

This game will be on Fox Sports Indiana in the Indianapolis area, and Fox Sports Arizona in the Phoenix market.

The Mercury begins a two game weekend road trip starting today. while the Fever tries to stop a losing streak. My money will go with Phoenix.

3. Chicago Sky (6-8) at New York Liberty (4-10), 7:30 p.m. ET

This is on The U Too in the Chicago area, and MSG in the NYC area.

Chicago lost its last game, but brighter days should be ahead now that Elena Delle Donne AND Sylvia Fowles are back in action.  The Libs also are coming off of a win at home against the Eastern Conference-leading Dream this past Sunday. If they win tonight, it may be a sign that things are turning around in the Big Apple, and that should ventilate Bill Laimbeer's seat.

4. Minnesota Lynx (11-4) at Seattle Storm (6-10), 10 p.m. ET

This is on LiveWell in the Seattle area.

Lindsey Moore was sent home earlier this week. Her home just happens to be near ... Seattle.

Anyway, these two start a home-and-home for the weekend, as the Storm tries to get out of the Western Conference's cellar while playing against one of the league's best. That's right. The Storm is currently the worst team in the West, and the second worst in the league based on wins and losses.

I know Seattle ended Minny's looooooooong winning streak. But, really, for a team like the Storm, what does a win (and a playoff appearance) really do for them long term?
