The WNBA season resumes following the Olympic games with the Atlanta Dream in Chicago to take on the Sky.
Locked in a tight battle in the middle of the WNBA's Eastern Conference, the Atlanta Dream will take on the Chicago Sky tonight, with tip scheduled for 8:30 p.m. E.T. There will be no television coverage of the game but you can find the broadcast online with WNBA Live Access.
Erika de Souza, who played for Brazil in the 2012 Olympics in London, will return to the team tonight in her first game since the completion of the Olympics. Brazil finished in fifth place. De Souza's commitment to Brazil had taken her away from the Dream for the entire first half of the season.
The WNBA was on a month-long break for the Olympic Games, which traditionally suspend the WNBA season for an extended period of time while the players compete.
Dream guard Angel McCoughtry leads the team in scoring with 22.6 ppg and has also average 5.6 rebounds per game.
The Dream and Sky are in a mathematical tie for third place in the Eastern Conference.
