Talk about tonight's games here.

Here are tonight's games on the docket:

1. Los Angeles Sparks (2-2) at Atlanta Dream (3-3), 7 p.m. ET

SB Nation's Peachtree Hoops has a preview of the game which you can read here.

You can watch this game on ESPN2 or WatchESPN. The Sparks are coming off of a triple overtime loss to the Washington Mystics, but they can get back in the win column tonight in this nationally televised contest.

2. Seattle Storm (2-5) at Phoenix Mercury (3-1), 10 p.m. ET

The Storm and Mercury are coming off of wins. Phoenix will be a tough team for Seattle to beat, especially on the road though.

All Star voting has begun!

Mayajustwins had a FanPost on the story earlier today.

You can vote through WNBA.com. the WNBA Center court app, Facebook, or Twitter. If you vote on Facebook or Twitter, use the hashtag #WNBABallot.

At least from a Mystics fan's perspective, it is a crime that I can't vote for more than one of the following players: Stefanie Dolson, Bria Hartley, Jelena Milovanovic, and Tierra Ruffin-Pratt, all of whom have made significant contributions for the team this season. That's at least if I was voting from the web form. If I could pick the five Mystics players on the ballot, I would have Hartley's name over Lawson's and Dolson's over Currie's.

The voting period ends on Wednesday, July 2 at 12 a.m. ET. The WNBA All-Star Game will be in Phoneix on Saturday, July 19, at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Enjoy the games everyone.
