The Daily Swish: Mystics move to 2nd place in a tight Eastern Conference

Here are some links for your Saturday morning. Web links that is.

Happy Saturday. Here's what's up from Friday, as well as some links that I found around the web.

Final scores from Friday

The Washington Mystics defeated the Tulsa Shock, 82-77 in a game that shouldn't have been that close, thanks to a really, really bad fourth quarter. The win now puts the Mystics in second place for the Eastern Conference, at least for one day. Here's our recap.

The Chicago Sky beat the Atlanta Dream, 79-75. Epiphanny Prince scored 21 points, and survived a late run by the Dream to win this one. Here is a recap from WNBA.com.

The Minnesota Lynx beat the San Antonio Stars, 88-78. Six Lynx players scored in double digits which included their starting lineup plus Monica Wright. A 12-0 run in the fourth quarter helped seal the deal here. Here's a recap from WNBA.com.

Minnesota Lynx guard Monica Wright was engaged to Oklahoma City Thunder forward. Kevin Durant last season. But the two have broke off the engagement over lifestyle choices, at least according to this article from the Christian Post. This gets into gossip territory, but back in February, another woman took to Twitter to claim that she had an affair with him back during the winter.

ESPN's Mechelle Voepel has a column on Lynx forward Maya Moore. Moore lost 10 pounds by changing her every diet over the offseason, and this could be a contributing factor toward her performance this season. Click here to read it.

Seattle Storm guard Sue Bird hopes to play Saturday, or today, against the Los Angeles Sparks. Click here to read the article from Seattle Times reporter Jayda Evans.

I missed this during Friday's post, but here's a video of Connecticut Sun forward Chiney Ogwumike. She was on HLN's Morning Express with Robin Meade on Thursday, July 24. Click here for the video clip from HLN's website.
