Tri-Cities Fever could win third game in a row

During the season break, Tri-Cities Fever announced their intention to lift the trophy after the first few took them seriously. The acquisition campaign proved that the club was serious and so far the new players have met and even exceed expectations. The team won back-to-back games for the second time in 2014 and has a great chance at winning the third consecutive game.

The hot run made it possible to close the gap separating them from leading Colorado, which still holds a narrow advantage over the Tri-Cities Fever. Basically, all they need is to keep up the tempo and hope that their rivals fail in the remaining three games. It is very hard to believe that Colorado will lose all three games and subsequently the lead in their division, but that is not a scenario to rule out completely.

Right now they must take it one step at a time and the first challenge is to defeat Wyoming, a fairly easy task since they lost 10/11 games. The game begins at 7 PM local time and their opponents are unlikely to cause too many headaches, but they still depend on Colorado not to win all remaining games.

Speaking of which, the team has picked up a win over Nebraska and scored 41 points, so it comes as no surprise that they are overwhelming favorites to win the regular season. Playing against Wyoming, Green Bay and finishing the regular season with a match in Kennewick sounds great for a team that at the moment seems downright unstoppable.

Tri-Cities Fever have a slow start and they are still feeling the consequences, but if they win all remaining games, they can finish with an 8-6 record. The numbers are hardly stellar, but they could be just good enough to eat their passage to the playoffs, and the replay against Wyoming twice. The downside is that they don’t have their fate in their hands, but depend on other teams to do the hard work on their behalf.

The head to head record with Wyoming is great, as the Cavalry won just twice against them in the last two seasons and they are going through an awful stretch. The last time the two teams met, the Fever emerged victorious and scored a dazzling 69 points while allowing 26, a game that will be long remembered at Toyota Center.
