The Lynx and Sparks are playing in Los Angeles today in an unprecedented battle of unbeaten WNBA teams. I’d say the fact that both teams are a combined 23-0 in a conference in which no other team is above .500 qualifies this as the most interesting regular-season game in WNBA history.
I’d also say it’s a shame that it’s happening on a Tuesday afternoon. Ideally, it would be in prime time, or at least on a weekend. But schedules are made in advance, and we take what we can get. If you are able to be near a computer or TV, here is how you can follow the game today — a 2:30 tip-off, Central time:
*If you have NBA TV, the game is being shown on that channel. As of last year, the channel was in roughly half of U.S. homes that had cable or satellite. It is not, however, being shown locally on FSN. “It wasn’t part of the original broadcast schedule and we are not in a position to absorb the additional cost of producing the game,” Mike Dimond, Senior VP and GM of FOX Sports North, told the Star Tribune on Tuesday morning.
*You can buy a streaming package. A single game is just $1.99.
