Lynx-Atlanta game preview

  • Updated: September 7, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Preview: The Lynx and Atlanta have faced off just once this season -- a Lynx victory in Atlanta -- but both teams still harbor plenty of memories from last season, when Minnesota swept the Dream in three games to win the WNBA title. This is the last of a four-game homestand before the Lynx start a stretch of six road games in their final seven overall.

Lynx at a glance: Since a three-game losing streak in July, the Lynx have won nine in a row while setting all kinds of franchise and player records en route to a WNBA-best 22-4 record. Most recently, Seimone Augustus became the franchise's all-time leading scorer Tuesday, passing Katie Smith with her 3,607th point. The Lynx are four games up on second-place Los Angeles, but a lot could change in the final two weeks. ... Playoff tickets go on sale Friday to the general public.

Dream at a glance: Atlanta is on a three-game winning streak heading into a stretch where it will play four of its final six on the road, starting at Minnesota. In the teams' last matchup, Angel McCoughtry seemed to be at less than full strength after missing a pair of games for personal reasons. She had just 14 points in that game -- far off the 21.9 she's averaging. When she is on her game, Atlanta is a different team.
