It’s safe to say KeyArena hasn’t been friendly to the Washington Mystics. Prior to 2016, Seattle enjoyed a 10-game winning streak at home vs. Washington, a stretch that dated back to the 2005 season. The Storm leads the all-time series, 19-13, but owns a 13-4 mark at home. Last season, Washington snapped that dry spell with an 84-82 upset in overtime, as the Mystics nearly blew a 14-point lead before the visiting foe edged Seattle in the extra frame, 13-11. Prior to that game, Washington hadn’t beaten Seattle on the road since July 13, 2005.

Despite playing at least 33 minutes in back-to-back games last weekend to open the 2017 campaign, Jewell Loyd showed no signs of weakness, as she averaged 26 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game. She shot 10-for-18 from the field in both games and has scored 25 points or more eight times in her career. Fans can already start the countdown – Loyd is only 23 points away from reaching 1,000 for her career. In the last time out on May 14, she netted 27 in an 87-82 win over Indiana in Seattle’s home opener.
