6 p.m. at Washington • No TV, 106.1-FM

Preview: The Lynx (7-0) are playing for only the second time in 12 days, while the Eastern Conference-leading Mystics (6-2) are playing their third game of the week. The Lynx are coming off a 100-77 victory in Seattle on Saturday. The Mystics, who were 13-21 last season and missed the playoffs, have won five consecutive games.

Players to watch: Lynx F Rebekkah Brunson scored a season-high 21 points in the victory over Seattle — her most since the 2013 season. F/G Elena Delle Donne, who is in her first season with the Mystics, is fourth in the WNBA in scoring (20.6 points per game). G Tayler Hill, a Minneapolis native, is averaging 15.1 points per game for the Mystics.

Numbers: A 24-point loss (87-63) in Washington last June was the worst loss of the 2016 regular-season for the Lynx.

Injuries: Mystics G Natsha Cloud (knee) is probable, while Mystics C Emma Meesseman is out indefinitely because of personal reasons.
