Keep an eye on:
Setting The Tone: for the start of the playoffs. There is a term in basketball when it's time to fully lock in and crush the opponent, don't play with your food. With tonight's match-up with the last place Fever, a team that has lost 17 straight games and are 0-3 against Washington, and with the playoffs on the horizon, Washington should look to be firing on all cylinders and dominate the Fever while building momentum as they move into the first round of the playoffs against the dangerous Seattle Storm. If they don't, more doubt will creep in as to how far the Mystics can go in the playoffs. Washington has the experience, they're talented, well coached, deep and versatile.....they're capable, now, it's a sense of urgency to show it.
