Playoff picture still murky

The Mercury, Lynx and Dream have all secured a playoff spot. Phoenix locked up the first seed in the West last night, and Minnesota the second. But the Dream’s loss today means they haven’t yet clinched first seed in the East. As far as who the other five playoff teams will be, it’s still up in the air, with a full week of regular season games left.

Playoff picture.

Games to watch this week will be:

Sparks at Lynx, Tuesday
Sky at Mystics, Wednesday
Liberty at Fever, Thursday
Shock at Dream, Friday
Storm at Sparks, Friday
Liberty at Mystics, Saturday
Sky at Fever, Saturday
Sparks at Mercury, Saturday
Fever at Liberty, Sunday
Stars at Sky, Sunday

Today’s games were riveting:

The Sky beat the Dream, 80-69.

The Stars downed the Sparks, 82-76.

The Fever defeated the Liberty, 90-76, behind Tamika Catchings’ season-high 29 points.

The Storm came back to beat the Shock, 74-68.

The Sun got past the Mystics in double overtime, 89-81.

Day off tomorrow, and it’s back to the mosh pit.
