Meanwhile, the Liberty are in free-fall in the midst of an eight-game losing streak. Atlanta is on the second half of a back-to-back, but they should have more than enough in the tank to pull out a win here.

Storylines to follow

The Mystics have won five in a row since the All-Star break and look to get their first 20-win season since 2010, when they finished the regular season on a six-game win streak. Washington looks really hard to stop as they head toward the playoffs and a likely Top-4 seed, if not better. Given that the Mystics have won 19 games, they will finish higher than the Wings regardless of the outcome.

As for the Wings, they are on the second game of a back-to-back and are coming off a 92-82 loss to the Dream on Saturday. They also bring a seven-game losing streak with them. Winning today would do wonders as they try to secure a playoff spot.
