Phoenix Mercury vs Washington Mystics Prediction

Phoenix Mercury vs Washington Mystics Prediction: The Washington Mystics will start as favorites in their upcoming game against the Phoenix Mercury as per the latest predictions.

The Phoenix Mercury will aim for their fourth straight win in the WNBA when they meet the Washington Mystics for the second time in 3 days. The Mercury have managed to bring their campaign back on track after a disappointing first half of the season.

The last away win against the Mystics would have given a major boost to the squad. Skylar Diggins-Smith was the top scorer in that game with 27 points. She also added 4 rebounds and 5 assists to her name. Diana Taurasi also had a fantastic night as she scored 20 points with 7 assists. The Mercury will look to repeat the same performance tonight.

The Washington Mystics will be keen to turn the tables tonight after losing the last clash. It will be a home game again and the Mystics are expected to bounce back strongly. Myisha Hines-Allen led her side in the last game with 18 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 assists.

Ariel Atkins also gave a good contribution of 15 points with 4 rebounds and 3 assists. But they couldn’t avoid a defeat by 9 points by the end.
