KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Tri-Cities Fever are working on becoming road warriors. The Fever are just 3-3 this season on the road going into Sunday's regular season finale in Kent against the Seattle Timberwolves.
Even with a win this weekend, the Fever are likely to get just one home playoff game. That means if they are to make a championship run, they will have to get tougher on the road.
First up though, they need to beat the Timberwolves.
"I think personally they don't like us too much," said quarterback Houston Lillard. "It's always hard to play on the road in this league. It's going to be tough. All the road games are tough. For us, that's been our big hurdle this year so I think as long as we come out and are aggressive, play the 2nd half how we play the 1st half, it'll be alright."
"It's going to be big for us to go out and get this win this weekend," said defensive back Dwain Crawford. "It will get the momentum going towards the playoffs. We're going to have to go on the road [in the playoffs] so it is an opportunity for us to just go out there and bond together as a team."
