First meeting of the two teams!

It’s a Washington Mystics gameday and quite frankly the only game of the night in the WNBA. The Mystics play the Los Angeles Sparks tonight in their first meeting of the season. It should be a good matchup between the two.

The Sparks will be without two big time scorers in the Ogwumike sisters, Chiney and Nneka. Erica Wheeler and Kristi Toliver hope to use their explosiveness to make up for it. Washington will still be without Elena Delle Donne, but Tina Charles has filled in quite nicely averaging a little over 25 points a game.

Ariel Atkins still remains on the injury report but has gone from questionable to probable for tonight’s game. If the Mystics play anything like what they did on Tuesday, a win can surely be secured.

Also, Washington will be reunited with Toliver since the 2019 season. Toliver signed with the Sparks in the 2020 off-season.

Make sure you’re tuned in tonight!
