Then it was Atlanta's turn, as they tied it on a driving layup from Angel McCoughtry with three seconds left in the first overtime. But Minnesota would get the last word, pulling ahead in the final minute in double overtime with Candace Wiggins sinking a pair of free throws to seal the victory.

McCoughtry led the Dream in scoring, picking up 30 points, nine rebounds and one assist in 36 minutes off the bench. Lindsey Harding was tops among the starters with 23 points, seven assists and four rebounds.
