The Atlanta Dream have had some issues inside the bubble but they are coming off a big win in their last game. In the Dream’s last game against the Indiana Fever, their offense was strong putting up 102 points and that led to an easy victory. The Dream’s offense was really good putting up 34 points in the 4th quarter and that led to a victory. Courtney Williams and Chennedy Carter both put up 22 points in the last game. On the season the Dream are averaging 81.4 points per game while the defense is giving up 90.2 points per game. The Dream are shooting 45 percent from the field while they are letting opponents shoot 46.6 percent from the field. Carter has been the best player for the Dream this year averaging 17 points while shooting 46.5 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the New York Liberty who have been terrible this season and coming into this game they have lost two games in a row. This is an offense that has struggled most of the season and in the last game against the Connecticut Sun the offense was a really big issue putting up only 65 points and that led to the loss. On the season the Liberty are averaging 73.5 points per game while the defense is giving up 87.9 points per game. On the Liberty’s biggest issue is with their three-point shooting, hitting only 29.7 percent of their shots from deep. Layshia Clarendon has been the best player for the Liberty averaging 12.2 points while shooting 47.5 percent from the field.
These are two teams who have struggled, but the Dreams last game was against the Indiana Fever their offense was good and that will continue in this game. Look for Atlanta to run up the score and that will lead to a blowout victory. Back Atlanta to win the game and cover the spread.
