The Dream were outplayed by the Storm in the first round until McCoughtry went into out-of-this-world mode. If she can come close to that performance again, Atlanta will win this game. The Dream are also going to get back Tiffany Hayes who served her suspension. But the difference in this game is that the Sky will be without Elena Delle Donne, one of the top players in the world. The Dream have to be favored to win this game.
