The Washington Mystics and Las Vegas Aces meet Thursday in WNBA action at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
The Washington Mystics look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games.

Elena Delle Donne is averaging 14 points and 8.6 rebounds while Emma Meesseman is averaging 13.3 points and 2.3 assists. Ariel Atkins is the third double-digit scorer and Kristi Toliver is dishing 5.5 assists. The Washington Mystics are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 84.9 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Mystics are allowing 30.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.6 rebounds per game. The Washington Mystics have split their last four road games.
The Las Vegas Aces look for a statement win after splitting their last six games. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 84.4 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 76.1 points on 38.1 percent shooting. Kayla McBride is averaging 18 points and 5.1 rebounds while Liz Cambage is averaging 15 points and 6.5 rebounds. A'ja Wilson is the third double-digit scorer and Kelsey Plum is dishing three assists. The Las Vegas Aces are shooting 37.9 percent from beyond the arc and 78.8 percent from the free throw line.

The Mystics are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 Thursday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The Aces are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 22-9-3 ATS in their last 34 Thursday games and 35-17 ATS in their last 52 vs. Eastern Conference. The Mystics are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Las Vegas and 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The under is 5-0 in Aces last 5 overall. The under is 4-0 in Mystics last 4 overall.
This should be a hell of a matchup between probably the two top teams with national championship hopes. The Mystics and Aces are both deep and have been scoring machines pretty much all season. The difference is the Mystics aren't the same team on the road as they are at home, as they're shooting just 41.3 percent from the field on the road and have lost two of their four trips. The Las Vegas Aces have been elite at both ends of the floor at home this season and are winning those games by an average of 14 points. Th Aces will be age to make a statement. I'll lay the reasonable chalk.
