6:30 P.M. at Atlanta • FSN Plus, NBA TV, 106.1-FM
Lynx update: With Tuesday’s 83-76 victory over San Antonio, the Lynx (17-6) became the first team to lock up a place in the WNBA playoffs. That hasn’t changed coach Cheryl Reeve’s approach. She wants to see her team shift to a higher gear over the final 10 games of the regular season and will be looking for more consistent and focused play. F Maya Moore scored a season-high 32 points against San Antonio and has scored 20 or more in 13 of her past 15 games. The Lynx have lost their past two games in Atlanta but hold a 10-5 overall lead in the series, including an 86-70 victory July 31 at Target Center. G Seimone Augustus (knee) could return to the lineup after missing 10 games.
Dream update: The last-place team in the East, Atlanta (8-14) ended a six-game losing streak Sunday — its longest since 2008 — with a 98-90 victory at Tulsa. Ballhandling and shooting have contributed heavily to the Dream’s woes; the team is committing a WNBA-high 17.5 turnovers per game and shooting 40.7 percent, second-worst in the league. Angel McCoughtry is averaging 19.7 points per game, third in the WNBA. Former Lynx forward Damiris Dantas, acquired July 27 in the three-team deal that brought Sylvia Fowles to the Lynx, scored a career-high 18 points in the victory over Tulsa. Dantas is averaging 10.2 points in the five games since the trade and has started all five. F Sancho Lyttle (foot injury) is listed as questionable. F Cierra Burdick (foot surgery) is out.
