0

The Atlanta Dream will face the Los Angeles Sparks at home on Friday night. The Dream defeated the Indiana Fever 91-81 on Wednesday to move to 13-18 on the year. The Sparks, on the other hand, have now lost five in a row after they fell to the New York Liberty on Wednesday. Looking at the playoff picture, Atlanta is in the eighth seed, while L.A. is in 10th, just one game back of Atlanta.

The Dream were able to snap their four-game skid courtesy of Rhyne Howard’s 20 points, five rebounds, and five steals. Howard has been Atlanta’s most reliable scorer all year long, and she’s tallied several 20-point efforts over the last couple of weeks. Atlanta, as a team, scores the second-fewest points in the WNBA, and their defense usually leads them to victory.

The visiting Sparks have been cold over the last two weeks, and recently they’re 1-6 against the spread following a loss. Last game, Nneka Ogwumike led the way with 19 points and seven boards in a narrow defeat to the Liberty. In that game, the Sparks led by double digits for a stretch but were eventually outscored by 14 points in the second half.

L.A. couldn’t get anything going offensively after a 24-point first quarter as they ran out of gas. Even though it was the second half of a back-to-back, 16 turnovers and 4-for-17 shooting from three were the reasons for their fifth consecutive defeat.
