Dream stumbles in fourth quarter

In a clash between two streaks – the Atlanta Dream’s two-game winning streak and the San Antonio Silver Stars’ collection of six consecutive wins – the Silver Stars came out on top Friday. The Dream fell to 2-18 with the 82-74 loss, despite leading by 16 points with 2:07 left in the third quarter.

“I thought we played a great game,” says Dream coach Marynell Meadors. “We had them on the rope. We made them play hard. I felt like we deserved to win the game.”

The Dream is 2-1 on their six-game road trip, with Chicago on tap Sunday.

Silver Stars coach Dan Hughes says the Dream outplayed them for much of the game.

“We made a run in the third quarter that helped make it a back and forth type of game in the fourth quarter,” he says. “They came in with a lot confidence and were making all the right plays that put us in a hole, but I think our team dig deep and we were able to come out with a win.”
