Mystics (finally) Win a
Tonight at the Verizon Center, the Mystics made it two in a row over the New York Liberty.
Unlike last Sunday's game, however, this one was no rout. Instead, it was a closely contested rematch. The Liberty made a couple of runs, but in each case, the Mystics countered and closed up the gaps. In the end, with the Mystics leading by one, it was New York (this time) who failed to finish, missing a layup as time expired. Mystics win, 64-63.
The usual suspects led the Washington win: Lang tied New York's Leilani Mitchell for game high scoring honors with 18 points. Matee added 13, and Nicky Anosike cleaned the glass with (game high) 11 boards. These players and the rest of the Mystics have very little time to savor tonight's victory as they head to Connecticut for a 7 PM match-up tomorrow against the Sun at Mohegan.
