Mystics hand Lynx second loss in as many games, 87-63

Washington –The Lynx netted their lowest point total of the season on Sunday, falling victim to the Washington Mystics 87-63 as a result.

It certainly appeared that Washington put a spell on the Lynx as they were not able to generate anything offensively, shooting 37 percent from the field. The Mystics were able to benefit from a first quarter that saw them outscore the Lynx by 20 points. The 33-13 outpour became the second largest first quarter deficit the Lynx would endure in franchise history, falling four-points shy of a deficit they faced in 2008 vs. San Antonio.

Emma Meesseman led all Washington scorers with 20 points, shooting a cool 75 percent from the field. Tayler Hill and Tianna Hawkins would each sink 3 treys for the Mystics in a contest where they would make 11 as a team, their high-water mark of the season.

Renee Montgomery recorded 15 points off the bench for the Lynx in a contest that saw Seimone Augustus be held scoreless for the first time in her ten-year career.

The Lynx will return to the Target Center on Wednesday when they host the New York Liberty.
