Sun vs Dream preview: Atlanta looks to rebound at home

The Atlanta Dream hope to bounce back at home on Sunday against the Connecticut Sun.


The Atlanta Dream look to get back on track Sunday when they return home to face the Connecticut Sun. The Dream returned from the Olympic break on Friday with a 90-82 loss to the Chicago Sky. Atlanta enters Sunday at 13-13 and with a half game lead over the Indiana Fever for fourth place in the WNBA Standings.

The Dream jumped out to a lead in the third quarter but watched it slip away after a 15-0 run by the Sky. Chicago turned 12 Atlanta turnovers into 23 points and also beat the Dream up on the glass to the tune of 27 second-chance points. Atlanta will need to shore up both areas if they want to get back into the win column on Sunday.

Connecticut’s 9-16 overall record may not impress but they have been turning eyes of late in the WNBA. The Sun returned from the Olympic break on Friday with a win over Minnesota. Connecticut has won three straight dating back to before the break and six of their last 10 games.
