There were a lot of mixed emotions around the Washington Mystics and Atlanta Dream, as the news was released recently that 19 students were shoot at a Texas elementary school.
With a mix of emotions surrounding the team the Washington Mystics continued to play well in the Entertainment and Sports Arena by earning a 70-50 victory over the Atlanta Dream in WNBA Action.
The Mystics have now have a seven-game home win streak over Atlanta, while also winning 10 of the last 11 against the Dream.
It turned out to be a special day for the team as Elena Delle Donne needed 15 points to reach 4,000 for her career, and the forward was able to do so with a 7-of-13 mark from the field to go along with three blocked shots. With the mark Delle Donne becomes the 40th, and is the second-fastest player in WNBA history to do so.
Guard Natasha Cloud, who used the media session afterward to talk about the events that had happened in Texas and in Buffalo, once again was a leader on the offensive side of the court as she was able to dish out a game-high seven assists.
Cloud and Associate Head Coach Eric Thibault shared their thoughts on the events that had happened and fans are encouraged to check out the video below to see what both had to say:
Finally Kennedy Burke rounded out the scoring with a season-high 13 points on 5-of-5 night.
Up next for the Washington Mystics will be a bit of a road stretch, as the ladies will head to Connecticut to take on the Sun on May 28th. Tip between the two teams is set for 7:00 p.m.
