The Fever is just one win from the WNBA Finals! With a 1-0 series lead, Indiana plays Game 2 and, if necessary, Game 3, of the Eastern Conference Finals in Detroit.
Game 2 is Sunday at 1 p.m. (Radio: WNDE 1260 AM, TV: ABC)
Game 3 would be Monday at 6 p.m. (Radio: WNDE 1260 AM, TV: FSN Indiana)
Meanwhile, Phoenix has defeated San Antonio 2-0, in the Western Conference Finals. By virtue of a better regular season record, Phoenix would have homecourt advantage over the Fever in a potential WNBA Finals matchup. Therefore, the Mercury would hosts Games 1 and 2 of the WNBA Finals. Games 3 and 4 would be in Indianapolis, Sept. 11 and 13. A deciding Game 5 would shift back to Phoenix.
Tickets for the WNBA Finals will go on sale on FeverBasketball.com as soon as the Fever might win its current series with the Shock.
