While we were speculating over RGIII’s rustiness and making our daily Nats playoff calculations, the Mystics were quietly making a playoff run. With last night’s win over the Indiana Fever, they clinched a spot for the first time since 2010.
“We all came together for one goal, to get to the playoffs,” guard Ivory Latta said. “That goal came true, but we’re not going to stop there. We want to compete in the first round and get to the second round. We’re not going to get complacent with where we’re at.”
On Sunday, Latta got a chance to try out some behind-the-scenes work, grabbing a microphone and interviewing Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones, who was at Verizon to check out a Mystics game.
“Great effort,” said Jones, when asked by Latta to review the Mystics’ loss to the Sky. “The refs called some poo-poo. At one point I looked and y’all had like 12 fouls and they had none. I’m like, ‘Jesus.’ But, I think y’all still got a shot. Playoffs is still in reach. We’ll be alright.”
