Keep an eye on:
Rhythm/Chemistry: will be key for both teams coming off the Olympic break, especially for Washington. In their last contest, a win over Chicago on July 10th, the Mystics only suited up eight players with four players (Elena Delle Donne, Myisha Hines-Allen, Erica McCall, Leilani Mitchell) being out either due to injury or preparing for the Olympics. That makes it a little over a month since Washington fielded a full roster. I can provide analysis on which players to keep an eye on, however, none of that matters until Washington finds a way to get their rhythm and chemistry back on track. The Aces provide a tough test....we will know how the Mystics will answer soon enough.
