A reminder: the Sparks have never won in Atlanta when Angel McCoughtry was playing

Will she be playing? Has there been any update on her condition?

McCoughtry is doubtful for the game, even though her knee injury isn’t believed to be serious.

Yes and no. I like that the injury isn't considered serious.

Well the Liberty didn't help the Dream any tonight. Guess it's up to the Dream to extinguish the Sparklers.

this is a trap game. sparks will lose.

the league never seem to schedule LA to play ATL at the front of the roadtrip. It's always after they've had to grind it out somewhere else.

Does it count as a trap game if you predict the better team to win?

There's a first time for everything. Time to whack Tiffany "Speedy Gonzales" Hayes, the Dark Angel, and Lori Ann too. Twisted Evil

Disagree. They made the Sparks play 40 minutes. With a back-to-back, having to play a tight game was the last thing the Sparks wanted.

And most of the time Parker doesnt play that well in back to back games

One down, one more to go! The Ladies of LaLa will really have to reach deep tonight.

The rest of the teams aren’t good enough to catch you guys for the second spot. In fact, LA might have a tough time beating you guys without Angel, never mind with.

Maybe, but we'll need Angel for the playoffs regardless of what seed we end up with

For the record, this is the first time the Sparks have ever come to Atlanta on the second game of a back-to-back.

Of course, but for the rest of the regular season, Atlanta is pretty close to “let’s just make sure we’re all 100% for the playoffs.”

Although, I do stand corrected, the Mystics are playing well enough where they could potentially catch you guys.

Luckily the Dream own the tiebreaker over Washington.

The Sparks would take over 2nd place with a win in this game.

Without considering tie breakers, 3 teams will be 19-11 when LA wins this game. I understand tie breakers will determine the final order if teams are tied. But, until that happens, standings are based solely on games won/lost.

Hard to know where LA will finish. Big game coming up in Phoenix and 2 huge ones to close the season in DC and CT.

Angel's next start for the Dream: hopefully, some point in 2019. Sad
