The Washington Mystics play the New York Liberty on Sunday afternoon. Here’s the preview.
When: Sunday, June 25 at 1 p.m. ET
Where: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY
How to Watch: ABC (WJLA-TV in the DMV)
Mystics: Kristi Toliver OUT, foot); Li Meng (OUT, FIBA Women’s Asia Cup)
Liberty: Han Xu (OUT, FIBA Women’s Asia Cup), Stefanie Dolson (Day-to-Day)
The Mystics will head over to New York City to face off one of the WNBA’s pre-ordained superteams for the first time since the season opener. If you forgot what happened, the Mystics won big 80-64 in front of their fans at the Entertainment and Sports Arena.
This time, Washington will play New York at Barclays Center. Since starting the year off on a slow note, the Liberty have won eight of their last ten games and are in third place with an 8-3 record. Washington is fourth in the league with an 8-4 record. The odds aren’t out yet on DraftKings Sportsbook, SB Nation’s partner, but I’d imagine Washington will be underdogs.
Let’s break those “odds” again, shall we?
