These teams met a little over a week ago and the Lynx won by 17 points while shooting 47.2 percent from the field. The Atlanta Dream are simply a poor basketball team and it doesn't change much when they're at home, as they lose there by an average of 7.5 points while shooting just 36.5 percent from the field. There's no reason to consider the Dream these days unless the spread is out of hand.
