Dream escape with a close three-point win over Sun

Atlanta Dream strike a 78-75 win against the Connecticut Sun onWednesday afternoonat State Farm Arena.

Four players scored in double digits. Tiffany Hayes led the team in scoring 18 points, followed by Elizabeth Williams’ 17, Renee Montgomery’s 12 and Alex Bentley’s 11.

At the post game press conference head coach Nicki Collen spoke on the team’s overall game plan, “I thought from a game plan perspective we wanted to keep their fives and ball screening actions because we thought we could get behind them and get some easy baskets. Really, for three games in a row, our game plan, you could just check it off. That’s why it’s been two of three wins and the other we had a chance to win because we’ve stayed true to the game plan, we’ve switched when we’re supposed to switch. I thought until the very end we did a good job on the offensive glass, that’s a really good offensive rebounding team. I think when you eliminate the turnovers, we had in the second half, I thought we played a very, very clean game.”

Here’s what Tiffany Hayes said about the home game motivation, team energy and the win.

Elizabeth Williams also spoke about her game preparation and the team’s momentum.

Renee Montgomery spoke about her top game highlights.

The Dream now (4-10) will host the Minnesota Lynx at State Farm Arena on Friday. Tip-off starts at 7:30 PM EST.
