Lynx, Dream Game Preview

The top ranked Minnesota Lynx (20-3) look to defeat the Atlanta Dream (10-15) tonight at McCamish Pavilion to wrap up this season series.

The Lynx have dominated the Dream winning eight straight times, including both meetings this season. In their match-up last week, the Lynx defeated the Dream 69-54 after outscoring Atlanta 23-2 in the fourth quarter. However, after losing guard Lindsay Whalen to a broken hand injury, Minnesota had their seven-game win streak snapped by the Indiana Fever on Sunday. Maya Moore led the way with 28 points, while Seimone Augustus added 16 to the loss. Rebekkah Brunson finished with 15 points and 12 rebounds as Minnesota looks to bounce back tonight.

Atlanta has struggled these last few games dropping four straight as the race for the eighth and final playoff spot becomes tight. In the loss to Chicago, Atlanta was paced by Tiffany Hayes and Brittney Sykes with 13 points a piece, while Elizabeth Williams finished with 11 points and 12 rebounds.

Catch this game on WNBA League Pass at 7:00 p.m. ET.
