Washington

The Washington Mystics have won four of their last five games to put them in control of their own destiny heading into their final game of the regular season.

On Sunday, the Mystics will face the Atlanta Dream with the chance to lock up the final spot in the WNBA playoffs despite getting off to a 4-12 start. However, Atlanta sits just a game behind them in the standings and would leapfrog them for the spot if they come away with the victory.

MYSTICS vs. DREAM WHAT TO WATCH 

The Mystics cruised to a 75-58 win over the lowly New York Liberty, keeping their playoff hopes alive. Myisha Hines-Allen led all players with 25 points and 11 rebounds in the must-win contest for Washington.

 

Washington was originally set to finish its season against the Liberty, but their Aug. 27 game against the Dream was postponed after the Mystics opted not to take the court in a statement against racial discrimination.

MYSTICS vs. WINGS PLAYERS TO WATCH 

Myisha Hines-Allen (16.7 ppg, 2.6 apg, 8.7 rpg): The Mystics have been hit hard by personnel losses this season, but no one has helped ease that burden more for Washington than Hines-Allen. The 24-year-old New Jersey native is in the running for the WNBA's Most Improved Player award.

Betnijah Laney (16.7 ppg, 4.1 apg, 4.8 rpg): Laney has put together a career year in the WNBA bubble, vaulting her into consideration for MIP as well. After averaging just 3.6 points per game prior to 2020, she's put together double-digit scoring performances in 18 of 21 games this season.
