The Mystics lost 97-86 to the Sparks on Friday night.
Washington fell to an early deficit in the first quarter when they trailed 25-14 after the first and 52-34 at halftime. That was pretty much all there was to it. Though Washington chopped away at the lead in the second half, it was too little, too late. The Mystics still don’t have the talent to beat a team like LA right now.
Elena Delle Donne led the Mystics with 18 points. Candace Parker led the Sparks with 23 points.
The Mystics host the Sky next Tuesday at 7 p.m. EST.
