At halftime, the Mystics led 57-40 and dominated with 20 paint points. At the end of the second quarter, the Mystics led the Fever in field goals made, 3-point makes, rebounds, assists, and paint points. The Fever(5-30) have the worst record in the WNBA and scored the fewest points(2,724) this season. So, it isn’t surprising they scored less than 85 points this game.
