Mystics vs Sparks Prediction: Washington Mystics to Win

Mystics vs Sparks Prediction: The Washington Mystics will start as favorites to win their upcoming game against the Los Angeles Sparks as per the latest predictions.

With only a few games to go before the all-important playoffs, it’s high time for the qualified teams to get all the things right and perform consistently well. The Washington Mystics will look to bounce back firmly when they host the Los Angeles Sparks for the next WNBA fixture on another blockbuster Sunday. The Mystics are coming off a loss to the Sky in the last game.

The leading scorer for Washington from that game was Myisha Hines-Allen who scored 21 points. She also added 6 rebounds and 4 assists to her name. Shakira Austin also looked good as she finished with 17 points and 4 rebounds. The Mystics have a good chance to register another thumping home win in the next clash with the Sparks.

The Los Angeles Sparks have no one to blame except themselves for their sorry state of affairs in the tournament. After 6 consecutive losses, the Sparks are looking set to get eliminated from the race of the playoffs very soon.

In the last game, they fought hard against the Dream but couldn’t avoid a loss by a margin of just 2 points by the end. Brittney Sykes led her side single-handedly and scored 23 points with 7 rebounds and 4 assists. However, she lacked good support from the players. The Sparks need to correct many things if they want to finish the season with pride.
