Charge! In Houston last night, the Mystics used another late charge to steal a win from the Comets, 67-63.

Unlike Friday in Chicago, when Alana iced a closely contested ball game with a 12-0 solo run, yesterday's charge was more a team effort. Down 9 at the end of the 3rd quarter, the Mystics mounted final period runs of 11-2 and 10-0 that included critical 3-pointers from Nikki Blue and Monique Currie. AB led all scorers with 23, while Mo and Blue also finished in double figures (12 and 10).

The victory gave Washington a perfect record (2-0) on their mini-road trip. The Mystics, now 4-7, return home to face the still winless (0-11) Atlanta Dream at the Phone Booth on Friday at 7 PM.

Team play? Thankfully I'm old enough to remember what that is, and that it wins games. I'd love to see it on Friday.

It sounds like Diva Blue has recovered well and making a nice impact.

I don't like the fact that we committed 19 turnovers, though. But, I'll take the W anyday. Let's make it three in a row Friday!

I hope the Mystics watched some of the Celtics and their defensive schemes. I think we could do that too - we have the personnel! Anyway - great win!
