Ladies and gentlemen, it doesn't get much better than this.
The same night the Mystics clinched a playoff spot with an 86-79 win over the Minnesota Lynx, Natasha Cloud made some history of her own.
With 8:25 left in the first quarter, Cloud hit an open Elena Della Donne who finished strongly at the basket. With the pass, Cloud became the franchise's all-time leader in assists.

Drafted by the Mystics back in 2015, Cloud has been integral to the team's rise to the top of the standings. She's averaging a career-high 5.4 assists and 8.8 points while leading the team in minutes at 32.3 per game.
Needless to say, her teammates were excited for her.
Hopefully, this magical season will finish with a championship, redeeming the Mystics of their 2018 Finals loss.
