Crystal Langhorne scored 12 points and the Washington Mystics beat the Seattle Storm 62-59 on Saturday, giving coach Mike Thibault a WNBA-record 212 career victories.
"I really think I can say it can't get any worse than it did last year," forward Monique Currie said, reflecting on the Mystics' 5-29 record. Of course, a year ago, similar rock-bottom statements were made following a six-win season — then things got worse.
The Washington Mystics extended their losing streak to 11 games on Sunday at Verizon Center with a 75-68 loss to the New York Liberty. They also lost their chance to play the role of spoiler for the Liberty, one of two teams, along with the Chicago Sky, fighting for the one remaining playoff spot.
For the first three and half quarters, it looked like the improbable just might happen. The Washington Mystics, sporting the league's worst record and mired in a nine-game losing streak, were holding their own against Angel McCoughtry and the Atlanta Dream on Friday at Verizon Center.
Lindsey Harding had 15 points and nine assists, Erika DeSouza had 12 points and 10 rebounds, and the Atlanta Dream cruised to a 93-68 victory against the Washington Mystics on Sunday.
It's been a difficult time of late for the Washington Mystics, who went 0-3 on the road last week against Indiana, Atlanta and New York. Their homecoming present was no gift either, a matchup with the Eastern Conference leading Connecticut Sun.
Becky Hammon scored 22 points to lead the San Antonio Silver Stars to their 12th straight victory, 75-72 against the Washington Mystics on Tuesday night.
With just seconds left in regulation and the Mystics down by three to the Chicago Sky, it looked as though a much-needed victory was about to slip right through Washington's hands.
In the shadow of a 4-14 first half of a another disappointing season, the Washington Mystics took a moment to remember better days. The organization will commemorate its 15th WNBA season with the unveiling of the all-time Mystics team. The celebration will take place at halftime of Sunday's game against the Chicago Sky, Washington's first at home after the Olympic break.
