The Atlanta Dream and Indiana Fever play for a spot in the Eastern Conference finals in a deciding Game 3 on Tuesday.
The Atlanta Dream look to close out the Eastern Conference semifinals with a road win against the Indiana Fever in the series-defining Game 3 on Tuesday. Atlanta took the home court advantage from Indiana in Game 1, but home court advantage has turned out not to be that at all.
The Dream went down at Phillips Arena this past Sunday after a rough second quarter, combined with the hot shooting of the Fever proved to be too much to overcome. Going into an elimination game at Indiana isn't unfamiliar to the Dream, considering they did this last season in the conference finals.
Indiana was a bit short-handed, with Tamika Catchings limited due to a foot injury. That's not the case in this series, but Angel McCoughtry has 19 points in the two semifinal games so far, and scored 26 in last year's close-out game. The Dream will need her to be at her best to advance.
Tuesday's game tips off at 7 p.m. and can be seen on NBA TV.
