WNBA Playoffs: Angel McCoughtry's 42 Points Power Dream To WNBA Finals

Atlanta, you’re going to a championship.

The Dream completed their upset sweep of the New York Liberty, winning 105-93. Atlanta’s star, as usual, was Angel McCoughtry, whose 42 points set a new WNBA Playoffs single-game record. She also kicked in a game-high five steals and four assists.

Atlanta won the transition game, scoring thirteen more fast break points than New York. Dream D again stood tall, with Erika DeSouza blocking five shots and others blocking four. DeSouza tied with New York’s Taj McWilliams-Franklin for the game lead in rebounds, with six.

The Seattle Storm swept both the Western Conference Finals and their season series with the Dream. The Storm, just like the Dream’s first two playoff opponents, will have home-court advantage in the best-of-five series.

Game one of the WNBA Finals will be played Sunday, September 3 at 3 p.m. in Seattle and can be seen on ABC.
