The Atlanta Dream head to Minnesota to take on the Lynx with the season winding down.
The Atlanta Dream will look for their fourth straight victory Friday night as they take on the Minnesota Lynx in primetime basketball in Minnesota.
Atlanta is hot at the right time as their extended winning streak comes as they look to lock down a playoff spot in the eight-team WNBA playoffs. The Dream are currently ranked third in the Eastern Conference and would face the No. 2 Indiana Fever in the opening round if the playoffs were to begin today.
The Dream topped the Fever on Wednesday behind a 20-point outing from Lindsey Harding and 15 from forward Angel McCoughtry in the possible playoff preview. McCoughtry continues to lead the Dream, averaging 21.9 points per game and 5.3 rebounds per game.
With six games remaining in their season, the Dream will be faced with a Lynx team on an eight-game winning streak headed into the showdown.
Date and Time: Friday, Sept. 7, 8 p.m.
