Phoenix Sun vs. Atlanta Dream -- 7 p.m. ET

The Mercury aim for a third consecutive victory after Sunday’s 96-67 win over the New York Liberty. Bria Hartley and Diana Taurasi will be needed for that third win.

The Dream is sitting at 2-2 after a recent loss to the Indiana Fever, 93-77. Atlanta will need Courtney Williams and Monique Billings to preform well to take down the star-studded Sun squad. The game will be aired on ESPN2.

Connecticut Sun vs. Seattle Storm -- 9 p.m. ET

Connecticut, sitting at 0-4, is now in danger of opening with five straight losses for the first time in franchise history. Star player DeWanna Bonner has stepped up to fill in the necessary scoring gaps, but one player is not enough.
