Having finally escaped from KeyArena (AKA “the Dreamcatcher”? No?), the Dream have changed leads with the Storm quite a few times tonight and hold a one-point edge at the half. Atlanta has trailed by as many as 10 points but came back to lead. The Hawks players in attendance were surprised to learn that's an option.
Angel McCoughtry leads all scorers — we don’t even type this anymore since it actually comes already entered into all our Dream posts — with 19, more than any two Storm combined. She hit a three as the half wound down to put the Dream back on top.
League MVP Lauren Jackson has been held to only four points so far. Sue Bird has nine with four assists.
Atlanta is six-of-nine from three-point land, while the Storm have hit only three of twelve. Three Storm — Camille Little, Swim Cash, and Le’coe Willingham — are in foul trouble, with three personals each.
