It's the battle of undefeated's Thursday night as the Seattle Storm (2-0) take on the reigning WNBA Champion Washington Mystics (2-0) in this 2018 WNBA Finals rematch.
The Mystics exacted some revenge after being swept in that championship series, taking two of the three games in the 2019 regular season, with those wins coming by an average of 24.5 points.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this truncated 22-game WNBA regular-season is being played entirely inside a bubble at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.

MYSTICS vs. STORM WHAT TO WATCH
Washington admittedly isn’t the same team they were last season, losing two-time WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne, Natasha Cloud, LaToya Sanders and Tina Charles who are all sitting out this season.
However, the Mystics have racked up two impressive wins despite those absences and this game is certainly another opportunity to alert the WNBA that they are still the team to beat.
The Storm are in the middle of a ridiculous three-games-in-five-day stretch which ends with a matchup with WNBA title-contending Los Angeles Sparks Saturday.
