Atlanta Dream returns to losing ways

The Atlanta Dream notched its first-ever win against the Chicago Sky on July 5. Apparently, the mediocre Sky, which sits just above the Dream in the cellar of the WNBA’s Eastern Conference, wasn’t about to let that happen again.

The Sky dumped the Dream 79-66 on Sunday, their third win over the expansion team. They dominated the game, leading by as many as 31 early in the third quarter. The loss marked the second in a row for the 2-19 Dream, who put together two consecutive wins earlier this month.

“I just think that for whatever reason we just did not play a good game,” says Marynell Meadors, the Dream coach and general manager. “We did not come out with fire that we have normally come out with. This is an expansion team and usually you are going to have setbacks, but we felt like tonight we did it to ourselves. So we just have to keep battling and we can’t make the kind of mistakes that we made tonight, especially on the defensive end.”

The Dream, 1-2 on their six-game road trip, head to Indiana on Wednesday.
