Pregame notes

The Washington Mystics enter their first of two matchups against the Los Angeles Sparks this week. The team is still reeling from injuries to four major players. They have lost three straight games and seven of their last 10.

They look to win their first matchup against the Sparks this season on the back of their current star, Brittney Sykes. She poured in 25 against the Atlanta Dream in a game against her former team. Now she faces another former team, the Sparks. LA has lost two straight and eight of their last 10. Nneka Ogwumike and Jordin Canada have played great basketball despite the team’s struggles to a 9-17 record on the year
