You get an overtime and you get an overtime

One of my Twitter followers says there have been five OT games so far, in day 16 of the season, which we haven’t seen since 2016. All of this unpredictability is already reminding me of the college season we just saw. I hope it continues.

Today’s results:

The Aces ran away from the Fever, 101-78.

The Sparks nipped the Sky in OT, 82-79.

The Lynx won their first game of the year in dramatic fashion, taking down league leaders Connecticut, 79-74 in OT.
