Atlanta  battled hard throughout the first three quarters with the Dream leading at the half and at the end of the third quarter.

Late in the fourth quarter, with two minutes left on the clock Tiffany turns the and-one into a three-point play and the Dream trail the Sky by 2 points at the two-minute mark.

Tiffany Hayes’ led the Dream in scoring a whooping 27 points, followed by Alex Bentley who posted 10 points 5 assists.

After the game head coach Nicki Collen spoke on the bench’s effort,
“I just feel bad for our guys. I thought they battled really, really hard. Not having Elizabeth (Williams), (Jessica) Breland was sick, didn’t come to shoot around. … To immediately basically be down two starting posts against a team that’s pretty deep and versatile, it’s tough for us, but I thought our bench was excellent. (Alex Bentley) didn’t get a ton of minutes and fouled out, but our bench was — all five of them were on the positive on the plus/minus considerably.”

The Dream now (5-22) is on a two-game road trip in search of cracking their eleven game losing streak when the team face the New York Liberty on Friday August 23.
