The Washington Mystics need a win to snap a four-game losing streak. The Washington Mystics are averaging 74.7 points on 42.7 percent shooting and allowing 71.4 points on 40.3 percent shooting. Ivory Latta is averaging 12.6 points and two rebounds while Stefanie Dolson is averaging 12.2 points and 6.2 rebounds. Emma Meesseman is the third double-digit scorer and Tierra Ruffin-Pratt is dishing 2.2 assists. The Washington Mystics have scored 67 or less points in four of their last six games. The Mystics have lost five straight when scoring less than 70 points. The Mystics are 10-5 SU on their home court and have won four of their last six.
The Fever are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 20-9 ATS in their last 29 road games. The Mystics are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. The Fever are 20-8 ATS in the last 28 meetings in Washington.
The Mystics have fallen off big time over the last few games. Indiana has cooled off a bit as well, but at least we're getting points with the Fever. I like Indiana in this spot given the way Washington is playing.
