There are three Saturday night games in the WNBA tonight. Here’s the preview and how to watch!


Los Angeles Sparks (12-7) vs. Washington Mystics (11-6)

When: Saturday July 7 at 7 p.m. EST

Where: Staples Center | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide streaming) | Spectrum SportsNet (L.A. TV) | Monumental Sports Network (D.C. area streaming)

Injury report: No injuries to report for the Mystics. But for the Sparks, Sydney Wiese is out and Riquna Williams is questionable.

Storylines to follow

This is the game of the night as the WNBA’s third and fourth seeds battle it out. The Mystics are on a 22 win pace for the regular season, but they only won 20 games once, back in 2010. Meanwhile the Sparks are coming into tonight on a two game losing streak. Are they just trying to “save their powder” for the postseason? After all, the Sparks are actually behind the Mystics in the WNBA standings.


Chicago Sky (6-12) vs. Minnesota Lynx (11-7)

When: Saturday July 7 at 8:30 p.m. EST

Where: Wintrust Arena | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide streaming) | The U Too (Chicago area TV)

Injury report: For the Sky, Jamierra Faulkner (knee/ACL) is out for the season.

Storylines to follow

The Lynx have gradually hit their midseason form after a slow start to their 2018 season. However, they will play a Sky team with one of the best backcourts in the WNBA where Allie Quigley is having a career season and Courtney Vandersloot is maintaining her All-Star level form.


Las Vegas Aces (7-12) vs. Connecticut Sun (10-8)

When: Saturday July 7 at 10:30 p.m. EST

Where: Mandalay Bay Events Center | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide streaming) | The U Too (Chicago area TV)

Injury report: For the Aces, Isabelle Harrison took a leave of absence so she is suspended for the season. For the Sun, Alyssa Thomas (shoulder) is doubtful while Courtney Williams (personal) is questionable.

Storylines to follow

The overall records of both teams are a little misleading. The Aces are actually 5-5 in their last ten games after a slow start to the season while the Sun are 3-7 in their last ten games after a hot start to their regular season. My money goes on the Aces winning this Saturday night contest.
