The Atlanta Dream came to play and they showed that starting in the first quarter. They were sparked by Angel McCoughtry throughout the entire game. The Dream had a great team effort with everybody that played scoring. Even though McCoughtry led the team, she dished out 7 assists and grabbed 5 rebounds and had 6 steals. She had a nice game and the Liberty didn’t have an answer.
Lindsey Harding had a great game as well. She is still one of the best trades the Dream have made. She scored a total of 19 points and like McCoughtry she grabbed 5 rebounds. Yelena Leuchanka was another Dream player in double digits. She was 3 rebounds away from a double-double. Harding and McCoughtry shared the spotlight in this game.
The Liberty didn’t have what it took to win this game. They are on a 4 game losing streak. The Liberty had a great effort but they did too little. Cappie Pondexter had 18 points, Essence Carson scored 15 points, Kia Vaughn and Plenette Pierson both had 11, and Kara Braxton put down 10. These states seem to be good but when you have to battle the Dream who had every player score, it was too little. Each of these players needed to have 20 points a game in order to win.
