Mystics hold on to beat Sparks, 84-80

Tonight’s game result:

Mystics held off the Sparks, 84-80.

The Mystics are doing a great job this season of finishing; they have matured since last year, under coach Mike Thibault.

The Sparks are to be commended for keeping games so close of late, while they’re missing most of their starting line up. Great mental toughness there. And nice debut for Nneka Ogwumike, with 11 points, six boards and five assists.

Today Los Angeles cut Courtney Clements and signed Jasmine Lister, who had four points and four rebounds in eight minutes of play.
