Spots 1-9 are still anyone's guess. Here's each team's remaining schedule for the last three weeks(excluding NYL, CHI & IND). Connecticut & Phoenix still have 6 home games, which could be a big advantage in this final stretch. On the other hand, Seattle & Los Angeles only have 3 home games left and both have a week on the road. Dallas might have to easiest remaining schedule while Las Vegas & Washington look to have the toughest remaining schedule. Should be a fun final 3 weeks.

ATLANTA (5H, 4A)
vs. WAS, vs. CHI, @ MIN, vs. LAV, vs. LOS, vs. DAL, @ NYL, @ PHX, @LAV

CONNECTICUT (6H, 2A)
vs. NYL, vs. LAV, @ DAL, @ CHI, vs. CHI, vs. DAL, vs. MIN, vs. LOS

DALLAS (4H, 5A)
vs. CHI, @ IND, vs. WAS, vs. CON, @ ATL, @ WAS, @ CON, vs. LAV, @ SEA

LAS VEGAS (5H, 4A)
vs. PHX, @ WAS, @ CON, @ ATL, vs. MIN, vs. IND, vs. NYL, @ DAL, vs. ATL

LOS ANGELES (3H, 5A)
vs. MIN, vs. PHX, @ NYL, @ ATL, @ PHX, vs. NYL, @ CON, @ WAS

MINNESOTA (4H, 5A)
@ LOS, @ SEA, vs. ATL, @ CHI, @ LAV, vs. SEA, vs. CHI, @ CON, vs. WAS

PHOENIX (6H, 2A)
vs. SEA, @ LAV, @ LOS, vs. WAS, vs. IND, vs. LOS, vs. ATL, vs. NYL

SEATTLE (3H, 5A)
@ PHX, vs. MIN, @ NYL, @ IND, @ WAS, @ MIN, vs. NYL, vs. DAL

WASHINGTON (4H, 5A)
@ ATL, vs. LAV, @ DAL, @ PHX, vs. SEA, vs. DAL, @ IND, vs. LOS, @ MIN

Connecticut has the easy road. Three games against the out-of-contention teams and none against the top two seeds.

Seattle could go .500 and still end up 23-11, so they'll be hard to catch.

Not with only 8 games left.

If Seattle can beat NY twice and Indy once they are 22-12 even if they lose every other game. Dream would have to win 6 of 9, to catch them and would get the top seed due to owning the tie breaker.

Lynx would have to win 7 of 9 and beat Seattle twice.

I think the Sparks and Mercury would need to win 8 of 9 but I'm not sure about the tiebreakers.

So - Seattle will be very hard to catch. The second seed, however is completely up for grabs.

And while home-court in Game 5 of a hypothetical Finals would be nice, the main target is to get that double-bye - and to lose that two teams would have to catch them. It's close enough that a collapse of something like 2-6 the rest of the way could create problems, but it's hard to see them dropping out of the top-two.

Main priority for them at this point is trying to make sure everyone's healthy and rested for the playoffs. There were so many years where it seemed like they'd have a shot to make a run if only LJ wasn't so banged up.

Las Vegas' best chance to make the playoffs is for a collapse by the Mystics. Currently two games behind Washington, those next four games for both teams will be critical, including a match-up against each other on Friday in Washington.

Completely agree with your last sentence.

I'd go even, farther-- if LJ wasn't so banged up we (Storm) would have won every year.

So..Sue should play, like 15 minutes a game. Laughing

At the very least she'll be getting a DNP-Old for one of the back-to-back games next Monday/Tuesday, and I'll be surprised if she plays much in at least one of their final games on the Friday/Sunday that close out the season (unless they're still playing for something meaningful). So if you were to average her minutes out across the remaining eight, you might not be far off. Wink

Getting the double bye gives that team all the rest they should need before playoffs.

Sue Bird's going to have a career in which she can say that she played with Lauren Jackson and Breanna Stewart. Talk about being in the right place at the right time all of the time.

Bird might wait around to try and play with Azzi Fudd in 2025.

And they will say the same about her. Make no mistake she has a big part in why they became (and become) MVP's

Sue is the best combo of shooting and passing from the PG position that the WNBA has ever had. Which is pretty unbelievable when you consider she was drafted in 2002. In a bunch of other athletic areas, we've seen the league dwarf what it once was. Especially at the C position. Among other things it shows there's no real substitute for passing and ball movement.

Atlanta has an interesting schedule. They have games left against the Lynx, Sparks, and Mercury. The season series for all 3 (ATL v. MN, ATL v. LA, and ATL v. PHX) are a 1-1 tie with the third game being the tiebreaker. If they sweep all 3 caching them will be difficult.

Teams 2-6 are now separated by only 1 game. The Sun (7) are only 1.5 games back and the Wings Cool are only 2.5 back. With a little luck any of those teams could end up with the No. 2 seed.

The final playoff spot is also close - Dallas is only 1.5 games ahead of the Aces.

As of now, Seattle has won the first 4 of their last 8 games on this list, but still needs 2 more wins or 1 Atlanta loss to clinch the #1 seed.

Atlanta could go 24-10 by winning out and would have the tiebreaker.

Still seems unlikely that Dallas will go winless the rest of the season with Vegas needing to go 3-3 to get in.

They could also tie at 23-11

I should have said 1 win and 1 Atlanta loss. Atlanta can't get to 25 wins, which is why 2 wins would clinch it for Seattle.

Vegas is two games behind Dallas now for that #8 spot. That forfeit might become a deciding factor. The Vegas @ Dallas game on Aug. 17 might decide that #8 seed.

DALLAS (4H, 5A)
@ ATL, @ WAS, @ CON, vs. LAV, @ SEA

LAS VEGAS (5H, 4A)
vs. MIN, vs. IND, vs. NYL, @ DAL, vs. ATL
