The Atlanta Dream fall to the Connecticut Sun in their regular season finale.

In what could have been a preview of the Eastern Conference championship series, the Atlanta Dream were unable to hang with the Connecticut Sun in both teams' season finale, as the Sun topped the Dream, 92-72.

The Dream, which open a best-of-five-game set with the Indiana Fever on Thursday, were led on the night by guard Lindsey Harding, who scored 16 points and shot 6-of-10 from the field.

Forward Erika de Souza led the Dream with eight rebounds, but could not help contain Sun guard Kara Lawson on the night.

Guard Angel McCoughtry finished with 12 points, good enough to lift her to the WNBA's scoring title, ending with 21.8 points per game on the season.

As the Eastern Conference's third seed, the Dream open on the road against the Fever in the best-of-five series. The No. 1-seeded Sun open their WNBA playoff run against the New York Liberty on Thursday.
