Atlanta Dream Travel to Seattle on Friday
SEATTLE - After dropping a tough game in Minnesota on Tuesday, the Atlanta Dream continue their road trip with a game at the fifth-place Seattle Storm (8-7) Friday night at 10:00 p.m. ET at Alaska Airlines Arena. Fans can stream the game on WSB-TV Now or WNBA League Pass.
Atlanta (2-9), which fell to Seattle, 82-66, in their first meeting of the season back on May 31 at State Farm Arena, will look to upend the Storm, who are coming off back-to-back home loses.
Tiffany Hayes is leading the Dream with 12.1 points per game. Atlanta's rotation got deeper this past week as Alex Bentley returned from her appearance in Eurobasket and has rejoined the team. She played a team-high 27 minutes in her first game back against the Lynx.
