If the Mystics play the Sun in the playoffs, the only way they will do so is in the WNBA Finals, assuming they win their semifinals series.
However, the Sun’s winning ways also force Washington to continue going all out to the extent possible as they close the regular season with games against the Wings on Friday and Sky on Sunday. That’s because the Sun clearly have no intention to play a WNBA Finals series as the lower seed — and they also have the tiebreaker against the Mystics.
It is great to see that the Mystics clinched their best regular season in franchise history and with. But it would still be disappointing to still see them finish behind another opponent when the playoffs start.
