The Atlanta Dream have had an up and down start to the season and will be looking to bounce back from Saturday's home loss to the Chicago Sky when they take on the New York Liberty at the Prudential Center in New Jersey.

Atlanta suffered a 94-92 overtime loss on Saturday to the Sky in a game in which they had a 20 point lead in the first quarter. The Sky beat the Dream up inside the rest of the way and overcame 26 turnovers by out rebounding Atlanta 48-23. Angel McCoughtry scored 33 points on Saturday including 17 of 17 shooting from the free throw line.

Nothing has been up about New York's start to the 2012 season. The Liberty lost their first five games of the season before finally breaking the streak on Sunday with a 87-72 win over the Indiana Fever. Cappie Pondexter scored a season-high 25 points for the Liberty. Atlanta defeated the Liberty earlier this season at Philips Arena by a score of 100-74.

Tuesday's game gets underway at 7 p.m. ET but will not be televised locally. Fans however can watch the game online with WNBA Live Access.
