As the WNBA regular season enters its final stretch the Atlanta Dream are trying to get things headed back in the right direction. Atlanta is looking for its first win on its current four-game road trip when they take on the Los Angeles Sparks who are trying to nail down a playoff spot in the Western Conference.
Atlanta is 17-12 on the season and has clinched a spot in the Eastern Conference but enter Friday's game with a three-game losing streak and having lost seven of their last nine games. The Dream fell behind early Thursday night in Seattle and failed to compete in an 88-68 loss.
Los Angeles currently sits in third place in the West with a 13-16 record. They enter Friday with a half game lead over the San Antonio Stars.
The Dream won the previous meeting between the two clubs 93-85 back on June 3. Atlanta attacked the paint in that encounter and piled up a 68-48 advantage. However, The Dream have been unable to get their offense on track of late and have shot just 34 percent from their field in each of their last two losses.
