The Atlanta Dream used a strong first-half performance to defeat the Chicago Sky, 82-71. The Dream had outscored the Sky by 17 points at the end of the first half, and looked to have the game all wrapped up. However, the Sky made a third-quarter run to cut into the Dream's lead and make it an eight-point game heading into the final frame. In the fourth quarter, the Dream were able to hold off the Sky to win by 11 points.

The defense played well for the Dream as they held the Sky to only 40 percent shooting from the field and 21 percent from three-point range.

The Dream had four players who scored in double figures, with Sancho Lyttle leading all scorers with 24 points, grabbing seven rebounds and handing out five assists.
