The Atlanta Dream will finish off a three-game road trip Sunday afternoon when they take on Indiana Fever. Atlanta has won seven of their last eight games including a 81-79 win in San Antonio on Thursday. Indiana has lost four of their last five games but handed the Dream their only home loss of the season back in May. Eriana Larkins had a monster game in that win over Atlanta finishing with 13 points and 22 rebounds.

Rebounding once again figures to play a huge part in Sunday's outcome. The Dream are second in the WNBA in total rebounds while Indiana is just 10th. They will need their inside tandem of Erika de Souza and Sancho Lyttle to slow down Larkins.

During Atlanta's run, they have ascended to one of the league's best defensive teams. Atlanta is fifth in the league allowing 77.1 points per game but they are No. 1 in defensive rating per 100 possessions at 96.2.

Atlanta's Angel McCoughtry has been on a scoring tear averaging 23 points per game over her last three. However, her efficiency has taken a bit of a hit as she has shot less than 50 percent over that span. She is averaging 20.1 points per game which is third best in the league behind Minnesota's Maya Moore and Tulsa's Skylar Diggins.
