Winning just 2 out of tier 5 last matches, one could say that the Wings are losing their form but that wouldn’t be true. The Dallas Wings is one of the most dynamic team in the WNBA right now. The team is determined, focused and might just be waiting to make a comeback.

They are fourth in the Western Conference right now, with a record of 12-15 this season.

Dallas Wings vs Washington Mystics: Best Picks

Elena Delle Donne

Elena is extremely talented. Appearing 6 times in the WNBA All-Star team, 2x WNBA MVP and former WNBA Champion, she’s been adorned with laurels.

She’s having an incredible season as well, averaging 19.9 points per game, paired with 6.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists. She’s an excellent mid-range shooter, is capable of slashing through defense with her layups and has an incredible 3-pt range.

Myisha Hines-Allen

Former WNBA Champion Myisha Hines-Allen is a small forward every team would want on their side. With her incredible rebounding skills, she can easily turn the tide on the opposition with a quick turnover, and is a decent shooter from beyond the arc.

She’s having a mediocre season, but we can see a star molding into their prime. Averaging 8.3 points, 5 rebounds and 1.3 turnovers per game, she is definitely one of the top picks for Thursday’s game.

Arike Ogunbowale

This WNBA “Rookie” got drafted by the Wings in 2019. Since then, she has become the WNBA All-Star MVP, has appeared twice in the All-Star team and the WNBA Scoring Champion. She is a gifted point guard with a deep 3-pt range and commendable playmaking capabilities.

Dallas Wings vs Washington Mystics: Winner

The Dallas Wings are a league favorite team. Their fans love them for their vast spectrum of diversity in the terms of skills, performance and technique. They are almost always the underdog, and never fail to give their fans a show.

They face a tough challenge this Thursday.

Though the Mystics have shown formidable form this season, they must be reminded that a single player isn’t capable of carrying the team to victories. Basketball is a team sport, and having Elena Delle Donne deep in the wetworks every game is not going to be the best play.

All in all, both the teams are identical. We might see Mystics coming out on top, though.
