Storylines to follow

About a week ago, it looked like the Aces would inevitably go on a win streak and unseat the Sun, who finished the pre-All-Star break schedule eighth in the WNBA standings. But the Aces lost their first game after the All-Star break and canceled their Friday game against the Mystics, which they would have likely lost due to a lack of warm-ups and just plain old nourishment. Meanwhile, the Sun have won three games in a row and look like they’ve gained their early season form once again.

Dallas Wings (14-13) vs. Washington Mystics (15-11)

When: Sunday, August 5 at 4 p.m. ET

Where: College Park Center | TICKETS

How to watch: WNBA League Pass (worldwide streaming) | Fox Sports Southwest Plus (Dallas area TV) | Monumental Sports Network (D.C. area streaming)

Injury report: Skylar Diggins-Smith (concussion) is questionable for the Wings.

Storylines to follow

These two teams will face each other twice (including today) in the post All-Star break schedule. The Wings look to clinch the tiebreaker against the Mystics, who were slumping heading into the All-Star break. Meanwhile, Dallas has lost four consecutive games heading into tonight.

The Mystics won last Tuesday against the Dream, but didn’t get a chance to play against the Aces last Friday due to their travel woes from Sin City to the nation’s capital. Since the Mystics game was thrown off-guard while Dallas has been slumping, don’t be surprised to see these teams be a bit off-sync early on. But there’s still a lot on the line for both teams nevertheless.
