Individual rankings:
Aneela #3, Eric #3

The Washington Mystics continue to play well and find ways to win even without the presence of Elena Delle Donne on the road so far. This week, they went 2-1 with wins on the road against the Dallas Wings and the Atlanta Dream. Their only loss was against the Chicago Sky at home. However, they are still 5-2 and one of the top 3 teams in the league. This week, they face the Atlanta Dream at home and visit the Connecticut Sun on the road, which should be an early test to see how the top 2 teams play against one another.
