MYSTICS vs. WINGS PLAYERS TO WATCH 

Ariel Atkins (15.8 ppg, 2.5 apg, 3.4 rpg): Atkins has had a good start to the WNBA season as she's tied for the lead on the Mystics in points per game with Delle Donne.

Skylar Diggins-Smith (18.8 ppg, 4.6 apg, 3.8 rpg): Diggins-Smith is carrying the Mercury offense, leading the team in scoring as she hopes to be the spark that can help turn their tough start to the season.
