WNBA 2014: Dream look for third straight win against healthy Fever

The Atlanta Dream look for a split in their season series with the Indiana Fever who are now at full strength thanks to the return of Tamika Catchings.

The Atlanta Dream look for their third straight win Saturday night and a split in the season series against a suddenly healthy Indiana Fever team.

Indiana and Atlanta have split four meetings already this season but forward Tamika Catchings missed all of them due to a back injury. She returned a week ago and the Fever are riding a two-game winning streak and threatening to separate themselves from the rest of the conference. The Dream at 13-5 still have a four-game lead over Indiana but will look to build some momentum for a potential playoff match up.

All of the previous meetings have been tight contests with two of the four going to overtime. Atlanta's Angel McCoughtry is averaging 20.8 points in each but the Dream have struggled to sustain an offensive rhythm against the Fever. Atlanta has shown the ability to be able to slow things down and grind out games but that is exactly the way the Fever like to play.
