Results for the 2013 WNBA Conference Semi-Finals

leave a comment »

As the Conference semi-finals come to a close, we get that much closer to the WNBA Finals as eight teams become four. As two teams swiped their opponents out in two games, others won by a last second shot.

For the Eastern Conference, the final match up will be between the # 2 seed Atlanta Dream and the # 4 seed the Indiana Fever. These two teams have been in this position before, as this is the third year in a row that these teams will have met in the playoffs. After losing their first game against the # 3 Washington Mystics the Dream rallied together and won their last two games, including the critical game 3. The Fever swiped  the series from the # 1 Chicago Sky, with an incredible win at home.

For the Western Conference, the two teams are the # 3 Phoenix Mercury and the # 1 seed Minnesota Lynx. Also sweeping the series the from the # 4 Seattle Storm the Lynx have made to the Conference finals three years in a row. And after an unpredictable game 3 against the # 2 L.A. Sparks, with a last second shot from rookie Brittney Griner, the Mercury have made to the conference finals after missing the playoffs completely last year.

Both games will start on Thursday September 26th with the Fever @ the Dream at 7:00 pm. Followed immediately by the Mercury @ the Lynx at 9:00 pm.
