Five games to finish off the month of June. Talk about them here.

Unless you root for the L.A. Sparks or the Chicago Sky, your team is playing today. Let's get to the games:

1. Connecticut Sun (8-7) at New York Liberty (4-11), 3 p.m. ET

Watch this game on MSG in the NYC area, and WCTX if you're in the Connecticut market. The Sun is coming off a loss to the Washington Mystics, while the Liberty lost to an EDD-less Chicago Sky team.

Go Sun! Please put a nail in the coffin on Laimbeer!

2. San Antonio Stars (7-8), at Washington Mystics (7-9), 4 p.m. ET

In the D.C. area, you have to watch online through Monumental Network. The Mystics will have an opportunity to finish the first half of their regular season on a high note, and match the 2013 team's record at that point as well. Given how much younger the roster is at the top of the rotation, an 8-9 record quite frankly is impressive. The Stars on the other hand look to get back to .500 and they also want to get back on the Mystics for last Tuesday's loss.

3. Phoenix Mercury (10-3) at Tulsa Shock (6-8), 4:30 p.m. ET

I've said my peace on what I think of the Tulsa Shock, and the young backcourt there. In short, Tulsa's backcourt could be the WNBA's equivalent of the Washington Wizards starting guards if things play out right. Hell, they could be the WNBA's Washington Wizards if they can make the playoffs, and then cause some havoc, minus the Wizards' draft day snafus last week, but I digress.

Also, it's time to start giving more props to Courtney Paris. She has been an unsung hero given all the Skylar Diggins and Odyssey Sims hype (which is deserved). Paris has definitely given fits to a lot of teams this season, and should be given strong consideration for the All-Star team. 0

Again. Liz WHO?!

4. Atlanta Dream (10-4) at Indiana Fever (6-8), 6 p.m. ET

This game is on in the Indianapolis market through WNDY. The Dream looks to make it two in a row while the Fever try to snap a three game losing streak. Fever forward Tamika Catchings won't play today, but she was practicing last week, and that's definitely good news.

5. Seattle Storm (7-10) at Minnesota Lynx (11-5), 7 p.m. ET

If you're from Tayler Hill's Hometown, watch it on Fox Sports North.

Seattle tries to make it three out of three tonight and win the regular season series against Minny. These two teams only meet once more, on July 13.

That's all I have. Enjoy the games everyone.
