The Atlanta Dream look to snap a three-game skid Tuesday night when they continue their road trip in Seattle against the Storm. After starting the season 6-1, the Dream have gone 2-5 over their next seven games. They have fallen to second place in the Eastern Conference and need to get things turned around quickly.

Atlanta opened their current road trip with a 73-69 loss in San Antonio on Saturday. Angel McCoughtry led the way with 23 points but the Dream saw a late lead slip away.

Atlanta has struggled to generate offense and have dropped to seventh in the league in offensive rating. They are shooting just 41 percent from the field as a team which is third worst in the league and are dead last in three-point percentage at 25 percent. They are still among the league leaders in defensive rating but their cold shooting is putting a strain on them especially down the stretch of close games.

Seattle snapped a three-game skid of their own on Friday with a 98-81 win over Connecticut. Rookie Breanna Stewart led the way tying a career-high with 29 points to go along with nine rebounds and six assists. Sue Bird added 19 in the victory.
