The Indiana Fever and Atlanta Dream play early Tuesday afternoon at the Philips Arena.
The Indiana Fever look for a win after getting off to a rough 1-4 start. The Indiana Fever are averaging 73.8 points on 38.6 percent shooting and are allowing 86.2 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Tamika Catchings is averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds while Marissa Coleman is averaging 13.4 points and 3.4 rebounds. Natalie Achonwa is the third double-digit scorer and Shenise Johnson is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are coming off a game in which they allowed 98 points to the Chicago Sky. The Fever are sloppy at both ends of the court, but will have their top player in Catchings return from a suspension. Erlana Larkins and Shavonte Zellous are questionable with injuries.

The Atlanta Dream look for a win after splitting their last four games. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 68.6 points on 37.7 percent shooting and are allowing 73.8 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Angel McCoughtry is averaging 20.6 points and 6.2 rebounds while Tiffany Hayes is averaging 12.2 points and 3.4 rebounds. Sancho Lyttle is grabbing 7.8 rebounds and Shoni Schimmel is dishing 2.6 assists. The Atlanta Dream have yet to find their stroke on the offensive end, as they’re shooting just 28.7 percent from downtown. The Dream have scored just a combined 128 points in their last two games. Erika de Souza is questionable with an ankle injury.
The Fever are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 road games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Dream are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Fever are 5-11 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Atlanta.
The Atlanta Dream are bound to turn things around, as there's too much talent. I also don't like the vibes of the Fever with or without Catchings on the court.
