Looking for their fifth straight win, the Washington Mystics will face the Seattle Storm on Friday.

The Mystics, who are currently 13-6 under the leadership of star forward Elena Delle Donne are looking to end their four-game losing streak to the Storm. 

Delle Donne leads the team in scoring, averaging 18 points per game and eight rebounds per game, and Krisiti Toliver adds veteran experience to help guide the Washington squad. 

The Storm is looking for its fourth straight home victory and to bounce back after a recent loss to the Las Vegas Aces. 

Jewell Lloyd, Natasha Howard and Alysha Clark have been keeping the Seattle squad afloat without injured stars Breanna Stewart and Sue Bird. 

The first time these two teams met it was a close matchup, with the Mystics losing only by three points.
