Washington Mystics win Overtime Thriller over Sky, 89-85

1495 Sports is proud to bring the following Washington Mystics Post Game Press Conference from 7/10. This was after the team’s 89-85 Overtime Victory over the Chicago Sky. Video features thoughts from Head Coach Mike Thibault, along with stars Tina Charles, Ariel Atkins and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough

The Washington Mystics (8-10) were able to earn a huge overtime victory over the Chicago Sky (10-10) in WNBA action on Saturday.

Leading the way on the offense was Tina Charles who had 34 points and 17 rebounds. This is the second consecutive game she has been able to log 30/15. This is also the second time this season Charles has posted consecutive 30/15 games.

Also having a stellar outing was Natasha Cloud, who tied a career-best 11 assists. Cloud joins Courtney Vandersloot and Sabrina Ionescu as the only player this season to total at least three games of 10 or more assists.

It was all about the passing game for the Mystics, as the team was able to record 24 helpers. This is the 10th game this season the team has been able to log 20 or more assists in a game.

One of the other key factors in the victory was the fact that the Mystics were able to have a strong rebounding presence, as the team tallied 10 offensive rebounds. Which was huge for the team being able to keep the offensive momentum of the game. This is the ninth game this season the Mystics have been able to record 10 or more offensive boards in a game.

The WNBA will be on a break for the WNBA All-Star game in addition to the players participating in the Olympics.

The Mystics will next be in action on August 15 when they take on the Las Vegas Aces in a game that is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
