Road Work. Well, the Mystics took their game on the road and let's just say it still needs some work. A run by the Fever late in the first quarter turned the game in Indy's favor and the Mystics never really recovered, losing by a final score of 83-70. The Mystics were hampered by early foul trouble, particularly Delisha Milton-Jones and Nakia Sanford. In the first half, the Fever shot 12 free throws to Washington's 4. Later, Alana Beard was called for a questionable charge, her made basket was waved off and any real attempt by the Mystics to close the gap on Indy seemed to evaporate. A well rested Tamika Catchings (returning after two games missed due to injury) put on an MVP performance to lead the Fever, scoring 26 points and pulling down 11 rebounds...and despite playing aggressively on both ends of the court wasn't called for a single foul until 5 minutes left in the 4th quarter! It was just one of those nights for the Mystics. Their road game definitely is still under construction.
