Standings, what's next?

Despite racking up wins, the Stars don't look like they'll qualify for the WNBA playoffs. However, the San Antonio Stars are on a surge over the second half of the season. After looking like they'd be lucky to have one or two wins by season's end, they've now got a record of 7-22 overall. They're also not far behind the second-to-last team, the Indiana Fever, in the standings.

A few more wins could put the Stars ahead of a slumping Indiana team. Next up, San Antonio visits the Storm in Seattle with game time set for 10 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday night.

The Atlanta Dream still has a decent shot to make the postseason but they'll need to start winning. The team is on a disappointing seven-game slide. They're now 10-18 overall and 3-11 when away from home. Atlanta currently sits 1.5 games behind the Seattle Storm and Chicago Sky in the battle for the eighth and final WNBA playoff spot.

Next up, Atlanta plays the red hot Connecticut Sun at home. That game takes place on Tuesday night at 7 pm ET.
