What to watch for

The Mystics will go for a season sweep over the Dream. Atlanta has languished in the WNBA this season after a 2018 campaign where they made the semifinals. Washington should be favored to win this one. but it’s important to see how the Elena Delle Donne/Emma Meesseman front court duo shapes out.

The Mystics are playing against teams that don’t figure to make much of a playoff impact. So far, both of their star power forwards play well when they are featured players, But they haven’t spent much time together.
