Fever Playing in What Could Be Their Last Home Game of the Season
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Home is where the heart is and for the Tri-Cities Fever, home is where the wins are.
4 of the team's 6 wins have come inside the Toyota Center. In fact, the Fever have won their last 3 at home. Saturday night against Alaska, Tri-Cities plays in what should be its final game in front of the Fever faithful this season.
The playoff-bound Fever are pumped to put on a great show for the fans, one last time.
"Playing in front of the home crowd, they are so embracing towards us when we play at home," said Defensive Back Ray Little. "They give us that extra boost. Its kind of like a 9th man type thing."
"It's exciting because its been a long season," said Quarterback Houston Lillard. "It is my rookie season. I got to meet a lot of people and I love the fans. Playing professional ball is a new experience. It's really exciting, and I'm just looking forward to winning this game and playing in the playoffs here."
The Fever will try to close out the regular season at home with a 'W'. Game time Saturday against Alaska is set for just after 7pm.
