It has been 186 days since her death and the police officers involved have not been arrested. We will continue to #Sayhername.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS

    • Leilani Mitchell led all players with 25 points (8-15 FG), marking a playoff career-best (prior career-high: 19 points, 9/12/17 @ LAS). Mitchell’s 25 points are the second most by a player this post season, and she joins Elena Delle Donne (five times), Emma Meesseman (two times) and Kristi Toliver (two times) as the only players to score 25-plus points in a playoff game since 2015.
    • Washington went 9-18 (.500) from three-point territory with Mitchell totaling five three- pointers (a playoff-career best.) During the regular season, the Mystics shot 50.0% or better from three-point territory once (8/23/20 vs. PHX).
    • Mitchell’s five three-pointers marks the most by a player this post season. During the 2019 WNBA Playoffs, three Mystics players (Natasha Cloud, Elena Delle Donne and Meesseman) all
      totaled five-plus three pointers in a game.
    • Washington scored 84 points, marking the seventh consecutive playoff game the Mystics have scored 80+ points (9/17/19-9/15/20).
    • Emma Meesseman scored 18 points (8-15 FG), marking the eighth career playoff game she has totaled 17+ points. Meesseman scored 17+ points during the regular season on five occasions.
