2014 WNBA Playoff Predictions

The #1 seed Phoenix Mercury dominated the regular season, tying an WNBA regular season record with 28 wins. They’ll be the favorites against the Los Angeles Sparks, whom despite having arguably the best woman’s player in Candace Parker didn’t have an answer from the Diana Taurasi-Brittany Griner led Mercury. Phoenix swept L.A. in the season series 5-0. Ultimately the Sparks will steal a game, but it’s the Mercury in three.

In the other matchup, the Minnesota Lynx took four out of five games from Becky Hammon and the San Antonio Stars. The Stars’ only win was in a meaningless (for Minnesota) game toward the end of the season. If the Stars can’t contain the Lynx’s super-powered trio of MVP favorite Maya Moore, Lindsey Whalen, and Seimone Augustus, this can quickly get out of hand. Look for the Lynx to sweep the Stars.

On the Eastern side, the Atlanta Dream is the one seed, but the Dream is matched up against the Sky whom didn’t have that different a record than Atlanta. In fact Chicago won the season series 3-2. Despite the parity among the two teams, the Dream have an intensity from Angel McCoughtry and De Souza in the middle to dominate the series. Atlanta Dream wins 2-0.

In the series between the Eastern #2 and #3 seeds, the Indiana Fever and Washington Mystics will be the most intense matchup of all the playoff series. The Mystics came on strong at the end of the season and the Fever have the experience with 10 consecutive seasons in the WNBA Playoffs. It’s because of this experience that I give the edge to the Indiana Fever. Fever win series in a tight one 2-1.
