Every team had a game this past weekend. So let's get to them.

Saturday final score

Phoenix Mercury wins an 82-80 classic over the Minnesota Lynx - Brittney Griner. DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN! Here's a quick video recap from us.

Sunday final scores

Tamika Catchings scores 29 points for the Fever in a 90-74 win over the Liberty - The win puts Indy in a tie for third place in the East, while New York falls into the fifth, which makes Connecticut Sun fans chuckle. Link's to our recap.

Kelsey Griffin leads the Connecticut Sun to a double-OT win over the Washington Mystics, 89-81 - The Sun was eliminated from the playoffs with Chicago beating ATL after this game was over. But they did prevent the Washington Mystics from clinching a playoff berth, and in dramatic fashion in a Battle of the Youngsters. Here's our recap.

Kayla McBride plays like Kayla McBride as she leads the San Antonio Stars to a 82-76 win over the Los Angeles Sparks - 21 points for the rookie swingman. Jayne Appel had a franchise record 20 rebounds. Nneka Ogwumike had a good effort for L.A. while Candace Parker had a bad game. Recap from StarsHoops.net.

Atlanta Dream loses to Chicago Sky, 80-69 - The Eastern Conference leading Atlanta Dream is spiraling toward mediocrity. ATL has lost five straight, the longest losing streak in the league. The way things are going, is it possible that no Eastern Conference team will have 20 wins this season? Recap from SB Nation's Peachtree Hoops.

Sue Bird leads the Seattle Storm to a 74-68 comeback win over the Tulsa Shock - The old-timer does it to keep the team's faint playoff hopes alive. Link and video to our recap.
