W4 v. L6. Dream w/o Angel v. Dallas (probably) w/o Liz. Have fun with the odds on this one.

Liz made the trip with the team, so that’s a good sign.

Liz was just announced as either questionable or out. Of course I had zoned out haha. But Cayla George is starting.

I just noticed that Cambage is listed as Liz Cambage everywhere instead of Elizabeth. Are there any other players that they use the short version of the name?

Sykes speed is killing the Wings so far. They are having to guard against her driving and she just dumps it off the Renee or Elizabeth. Dream are dialed in during this first quarter.

We most definitely came out on the losing end of the Hill for powers trade. Terrible hill contributes absolutely nothing.

Atlantas Defense will have them competing for a championship. I think Mccoughtry skipping last season has actually helped the mentality of the entire squad. Theyre not missing a beat !

Confused on why the city hasn't come out supported ATL more? Their attendance looks worse then NY's at times.

Many folks live in the suburbs. Atlanta is a VERY spread out city. McCamish is no easy to get to or park at. I take the train and it’s still a 5-10 walk from the station. At least Philips is right off the train.

Not clever at all. More like stealing the idea from Connecticut Sun Fans facebook page, as far as even using the SAME emoji’s that Connecticut Sun Fans facebook page has been using now for a few years. Yawn.

Using emojis for anything or everything is an unoriginal idea anyways—I see people, sports teams, etc. doing it all the time on Twitter.

Sorry to take focus away from the great emoji fight of August 2018, but we are about to start the 4th quarter. 3rd started slow but ended better. Diggins-Smith is trying her best to keep the Wings in it. The Dream are playing a very balanced offensive game though.

Hill just needs to get her confidence up. Hopefully that corner 3 will help her to get out of her shell

No need for predictions its set in stone. With Liz we take this game im all but sure of it. I like the fight Azura and Skylar are playing with. Hill giving something on the offensive end is always a plus. Everyone else has been meh. Nice minutes from Plaissanceeeeee as well.

I guess Alex getting out of her shooting slump prompted Renee to get out of here. Lack of playing time is a good motivator.

I agree with you. With Liz this is a different game. Stevens has helped a lot defensively for y’all! I was happy when the PA announcer started pronouncing her first name correctly. Took a few tries.

Atlanta is not my favorite team but they play very well and I would love to see them in the Finals. They have been in the playoffs so many years and have never won the Title.

If I lived in Atlanta I would attend the games as any true van would reguardless of location. Atlanta put on a good show and their arena always looks almost empty. I've always wondered why that was.

Because people in Atlanta don’t give a rats ass about the Dream. Never have. And never will.

Out of the 9 who played, Diggins took 34.6% of her team's shots. She felt the need to fill the void left by Cambage not taking shots.

I hate I haven’t been able to go to as many games as I would like. Unfortunately midweek games are tough for me since I work about an hour or so north of midtown. Plus the past two years I’ve had to travel a lot for work. Hopefully next year I can make more and I hope they are back in Philips!

It would just be an epic collapse by Dallas if they finish on a 11 game losing streak and Vegas makes the playoffs instead.

Today's game actually looked pretty max for a dream game. At first it was scarce but im guessing it was a late crowd. The overhead shot actually showed the lower bowl looking maybe 80% full.

Not that epic. We miss the playoffs we get PP's and it should more than cement a coaching change in the offseason.. I wouldn't mind mama Taj or Erin gettinf their shot at lead. If not within then Michael Cooper or Eric Thibault need to be on the top of the list.

Would you want Cooper? Another Dream coach castoff? Eric is probably waiting for Dad to retire. I would love to see Taj or Erin though. I loved them both when they were playing.

I have to say this was the most I'd seen Stevens play and I was impressed with some of her play.

Dream are only two game behind us, but with two games at home we’re probably gonna win at those two, and with our road record we have chances are we may win all three. I think this Storm are going to keep the top seed.

I'm of the opinion that Johnson will get traded during the offseason...Chi,Minn,Ind and LV are the most likely destinations.

This was actually a bigger than normal crowd

Atlanta is not a pro sports city, and most definitely not a basketball town

So why should they go back to Phillips, or whatever it’s called?

Yeesh, if that’s the best list you can come up, you might be better off sticking with Fred. There’s gotta be something better out there.

It's more convenient, and probably costs less than McCamish
