PRIDE: PERIOD!!! Last time out on the floor, Washington was embarrassed in a 105-71 loss to Seattle. The Storm shot 59 percent from the field, 60 percent from deep and 81 percent from the line for the game. No Mystics player finished with a + rating in the plus/minus while every Seattle player did. That's how dominant Seattle was in every aspect. At this point, regardless of who's available to play, it's about pride. Whoever suits up needs to bring it for the full 40 minutes. Washington still remains a half game out of the 8th and final playoff spot even with them riding a three game losing streak. FIGHT. That's what we've become accustom to seeing from Washington during the Thibault era and that's what will be required to defy the odds and to once again be a playoff team.
