Keep an eye on:

Washington's Reserves: should be motivated to come and leave a mark in tonights game, after Sunday's lackluster performance in a loss to the defending champion Chicago Sky. Mystics reserves were outscored by the Sky's reserves 29-11. Elizabeth Williams scored NINE of Washingtons 11 points off the bench. That just won't cut it. It puts too much pressure on the starters to have to play a perfect game to earn the win. Expect Washington's reserves to come out on a mission tonight to show that Sundays night was an aberration.


Cloud Shooting Woes: over the last three games is something to keep an eye on. Over Washington's last three games, Cloud is shooting 26 percent from the field and 36 percent from 3-point range. While her efficiency from 3-point range is good, everywhere else on the floor she's struggling to find a rhythm. Getting her back on track shooting wise is mandatory, due to teams starting to back off of her and shrink the floor to make it harder on her teammates to get quality shots. Possibly operating out of the post and attacking the basket to see the ball go in, while also, getting to the free throw line where she's shooting a career high 88.9 percent, can help her find her touch and keep defenses honest.
