Pregame notes

The Washington Mystics are facing off against the Liberty for the first time this season in a Commissioner’s Cup game. Before defeating the Indians Fever last Wednesday, New York lost seven games in a row.

Washington heads into this game coming off a win against Indiana as well, and they also come in with the league’s second-best defensive rating. New York has struggled all year long to this point and it should be a good opportunity for Washington to get one more win before facing off against the Chicago Sky in back-to-back games starting on Sunday.
