WNBA Preview: Atlanta Dream (18-20) at Washington Mystics (18-20)

The Atlanta Dream and Washington Mystics each clinched playoff spots in their most recent contests.

Now the teams will clash for postseason positioning when the Mystics and Dream meet on Friday night in Washington, D.C.

Both teams possess 18-20 records and are tied for sixth place with two games left. Atlanta won two of the three previous matchups this season.

Atlanta is part of the postseason for the first time since 2018. Monique Billings, who had season bests of 15 points and 14 rebounds against Seattle, is the lone player remaining from Atlanta’s 2018 playoff squad.

Allisha Gray scored 18 points against the Storm and Cheyenne Parker added 17.

The Mystics wrapped their postseason berth up on Tuesday when they recorded a 100-77 road victory over the Phoenix Mercury.

Washington has fought through a plethora of injuries this season but the expectation of reaching the postseason never wavered.

But there is one other goal for the club to accomplish in the eyes of veteran Brittney Sykes.

Two-time league MVP Elena Delle Donne scored a game-high 24 points against the Mercury.

The Mystics routed the Dream 109-86 in the first meeting in Washington on June 28. Atlanta notched a 94-89 home victory two nights later and posted an 80-73 home victory on July 30.
