Here are some other highlights:

  • The Mystics host the Lynx on Sunday, May 27 and Thursday, June 7. They won’t play Minnesota again until August 19 in Minnesota. That’s also their last game of the regular season.
  • The last two games of the regular season won’t be easy. As mentioned previously, the Lynx are last on August 19, but Washington hosts the Sparks just two days before that.
  • The longest road trip is when Washington will go on a five game road trip in the latter half of July. The longest homestand is a four game stretch in late June through the July 4th holiday.
  • This is the last season the Mystics are playing at the building now known as Capital One Arena.
  • The season schedule is ending earlier to accommodate the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup from September 22-30.

TV and streaming

All Mystics home games are on Monumental Sports Network via online streaming. All road games are on WNBA League Pass except those on ESPN or ESPN 2. NBC Sports Washington may air a few games, but nothing has been public yet.

Speaking about ESPN or ESPN 2, the August 19 game against the Lynx will be on national television. The entire schedule is not yet, however, the Mystics should have more than one game when it’s released since they made the semifinals last year.
