Keep an eye on:
Maintain: winning habits and rhythm is all you should look for Sunday afternoon in the Mystics regular season finale against the Sky. With the top seed in the playoffs locked up, Washington will more than likely limit the starter’s minutes and look to the reserves to carry the load. With that said, it’s still important for the starters to keep their game rhythm and most importantly, walk off the floor injury free. Both can be obtained by playing with the winning habits they have consistently played with throughout the season. If all of this is done, of course with the season ending with win number twenty six, it’s time to lock in for the playoffs.
