The Washington Mystics look for their third consecutive victory when visiting the Big Apple on Friday to play the New York Liberty. Washington is 12-18 following a 79-71 victory over the Chicago Sky. Tina Charles was the leading scorer for Washington with 31 points and grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds. Washington is currently in the eighth and final playoff spot with two games remaining on the regular season schedule and a victory would clinch a playoff berth for the Mystics.
