WNBA Preview: Sparks face Dream in a must-win game

07:00 PM ET: Atlanta Dream vs Los Angeles Sparks: The Sparks face Dream in one of the most important games for them this season. The Sparks is now in a better position to make the Playoffs after Liberty’s loss to the Sun. However, the team would also hope that Mystics loses to Liberty so Los Angeles can have a crack as the sole holder of 13-19 record because Washington is matched up with a tough team in Lynx to finish the season. First Sparks has to win the game against Dream to solidify the chances.

Atlanta Dream plays at the fourth-quickest pace in the league and their guard-forward duo of Courtney Williams and Tiffany Hayes likes to get shots up early in the shot-clock. The Sparks score the least amount of points per game at 72.3 but the squad keeps it tight defensively and allows the second-least points per game at 77.1. The Dream allows second-most points per game at 84.7 and usually can’t make it up at the offensive end with 79.5 PPG. Los Angeles is coming off a blowout win against Storm in one of the best games they have played all season long while Dream beat the league-worst Fever in the last match-up. While Dream’s playoff hopes extinguished long ago, the Sparks is going to play under the pressure of a must-win game. Can Nneka and co. relax to notch one up to advance their campaign further?
