Washington Mystics vs New York Liberty Prediction

Washington Mystics vs New York Liberty Prediction: The Washington Mystics will start as favorites in their upcoming game against New York Liberty.

The Washington Mystics will aim to consolidate their position in the top half of the Eastern Conference when they meet the New York Liberty in their next WNBA fixture tonight. The Mystics have looked good in the recent games and they won’t like to lose the momentum at such a crucial stage of the tournament.

It took them just 2 days to avenge the defeat against the Mercury as they bounced back strongly in the last game and secured a big win by a margin of 18 points. It was a complete team effort from the Mystics. As many as 8 players scored more than 5 points. Shakira Austin was the leading scorer with 16 points. She also added 10 rebounds to her name. Ariel Atkins had another successful night as she scored 13 points with 4 rebounds and 3 assists.

The New York Liberty have struggled so far in this season. It would be another mighty challenge for them to avoid a home defeat against the Mystics tonight. They managed to give a tough fight to the Sky in the last away game.

Sabrina Ionescu stood like a lone warrior and did everything to get her side a win. Ionescu scored 27 points with 13 rebounds and 12 assists. Her performance gave Liberty a one-point lead by halftime. But Chicago snatched the victory in the final phase and New York faced a disheartening loss by just 2 points. All the players need to step up and give good support to Ionescu if they want to win against the Mystics.
