Washington Mystics v Chicago Sky – WNBA
This match will be a rematch between these two teams after their encounter on Wednesday, where Washington Mystic came out as a winning team (76:82). The last match for both of the teams took place in Chicago. The match was not as one-sided as the result suggests, but it was a rather a match decided in the last quarter. Up until the last 10 minutes, the lead was shifting between the teams, with Washington Mystic ahead by 5 points by the end of the 3rd quarter which is relatively low margin. But in the end, it turned out to be too much for Chicago to catch up to. In fact, Washington Mystic went on and dominated 4th quarter, outscoring Chicago Sky by 10 points (14:24), which resulted in a 15 point lead by the visiting team.
So far this season Washington Mystic won against San Antonio Start (89:74) and previously mentioned Chicago Sky (67:82), but failed to do the same against Los Angeles Sparks (99:89) and Seattle Storm (81:71). Despite not having the best record so far this season (2-2), Washington Mystic proved to be a class above their opponents who are holding a 1-3 record so far. Chicago Sky have lost to Minnesota Lynx (70:61), Atlanta Dream (83:91) and of course Washington Mystic (67:82). On the positive note, Chicago Sky managed to win over Atlanta in the rematch (71:75).
Verdict & Prediction
Taking all into consideration, I expect Washington Mystic to repeat their success against Chicago Sky. I do believe they are capable of repeating their performance against Chicago and the fact they are now playing at home court only helps the cause. However, I will predict Mystic winning by more than 9 points for tonight’s rematch against Chicago Sky.
