After an interesting few months of action, the 2019 WNBA regular season has come to a close. The Washington Mystics, who were swept in the Finals last season, earned the No. 1 overall seed and will have a bye to the semifinals and home-court advantage all the way. Joining them in the semis after also earning a bye with a top-two seed are the Connecticut Sun, who lost in the second round in each of the last two seasons. 

The Los Angeles Sparks and Las Vegas Aces earned the Nos. 3 and 4 seeds, respectively, and will have a bye to the second round. There, the Sparks will meet the Seattle Storm, who defeated the Minnesota Lynx in their single-elimination first round game. As for the Aces, they’ll battle the Chicago Sky, who cruised past the Phoenix Mercury in their first-round matchup. The winners of the second-round games, which are also single-elimination, will advance to the semifinals.
