It is a pleasure to welcome ESPN & ESPNw writer Mechelle Voepel and the AP's Doug Feinberg back to Dishin & Swishin for a roundtable discussion of the playoffs and also postseason award selections.
The first two rounds are single elimination games, and after discussing the appropriateness of this format, the roundtable discusses and makes their prediction on the Seattle at Phoenix and Dallas at Washington matchups. Will there be an upset? Who or what should we be looking for in these games?
Connecticut and New York will host the winners of Wednesday's games on Sunday, and then Los Angeles and top-seed Minnesota await the winners of those games.
Can Connecticut turn things around after struggling their last half dozen games? Can New York's grind it out, defensive style win a playoff game this year, after getting upset by Phoenix as the number three seed last year?
Then it's on to a discussion of postseason awards! The AP has just announced their awards, and Feinberg, who is the purveyor of the votes, and Voepel, who is a voter, discuss their thoughts on postseason honors.
A great way to wrap up the regular season and get you ready for the postseason!
