Here are the two games on the docket:

1. Washington Mystics (4-3) at New York Liberty (2-5), 3 p.m. ET

In the NYC area, watch this on MSG. The Liberty is currently last place in the Eastern Conference, and that's not where they expected to be, to say the least. The Libs will play a Mystics team that is worst in the league in turnover differential. While many of the Mystics' turnovers are a result of players just learning the system, this is still one area that they should try to exploit, since the Mystics' defense isn't based on trying to cause turnovers. They're second to last in forcing turnovers a game.

As for the Mystics, despite their offensive woes, they do have a magician on the court. Click on the "Must Watch Video" section to watch the play. I think you'll like it. Unless you're an Indiana Fever fan of course.

2. Minnesota Lynx at Los Angeles Sparks, 3:30 p.m. ET

In the LA area, turn on TWC SportsNet. You will get to see this guy (pictured at the right) below at halftime.

Word on the street is that he's pretty good.

As for the game, the Sparks are coming off a win last Friday against the Chicago Sky, while the Lynx finally lost on the road to the Seattle Storm. Here are some highlights below:

If I have to pick a winner, I may just have to go with L.A. given that the Sparks are back at home and will be a tougher opponent than the Storm.

(Also, Game 2 of the NBA Finals are tonight with the San Antonio Spurs hosting the Miami Heat. You can watch this on ABC at 8 p.m. ET. Spurs lead the series, one to zippy.)

Enjoy the games everyone!
