Pregame notes

The Washington Mystics are stumbling their way through the mid part of the regular season schedule. They lost three of their last four, and six of their last nine contests.

If they lose this one? Well, then they become a 0.500 team, exactly at the wrong time of the season.

A loss could signal the team is not able to handle the multiple injuries to the stars and might be practically giving up on the season.

The Mystics hosted the Wings back in June. Here are the highlights from that thriller game (won’t say who won to avoid spoilers, but it was a real close one):
