It Happened Elsewhere!

Mystics 69, Comets 66. This is one of those games that makes you wish you had NBA TV. Coco Miller's steal with about 29 seconds left put the Mystics up for good in a game that started out slow for Washington (who didn't score until four minutes into the first quarter), but quickly tightened up all the way down to the final seconds. The Mystics (1-2) have won four of their last five against the Comets (0-2) and will take on the Dream at home on Tuesday.

Bad news for the Mystics - starting guard Nikki Blue limped off the court with an ankle injury and didn't return.

Shock 72, Liberty 62. It wasn't an impressive replay of last year's Eastern conference finals -- the Liberty only shot 30 percent from the field and the game wasn't close. The third quarter for New York was particularly ugly, with the Shock holding Liberty scoring to a grand total of one point in the first 7:20 of the third quarter. The Liberty finally woke up in the fourth quarter with a 23-4 rally but it was too late for the New Yorkers. Plenette Pierson scored 25 points for the Shock.

The Shock move up to 4-1 on the season, right behind the Sun in the Eastern Conference. The Liberty drop to 1-2.
