The night after the Mystics' devastating loss at the Garden, the team regrouped at home and notched their first win of the season, beating the Phoenix Mercury 86-69. If ever a team -- and its fans -- needed a win, it was the Mystics, and finally they did not disappoint.
Before this evening, the Mercury was considered to be the team with the high-octane offense, but to the joy (not to mention, relief) of fans (including one very happy owner), the Mystics pulled a role reversal and shot a respectable 46% from the field and a remarkable 62% from long-distance.
That O'fer is history, and we're hoping the team can focus on another kind of record . . . this time piling up as many wins as they can to redeem the season.
