Right when it looked like the Washington Mystics were ready to make another run this season, they lose four straight games and see the offensive production take a nosedive. The Minnesota Lynx have won four of their last five tries and have covered four of their last five games overall. We're getting a free bucket with the team in better form. I'll take it.
