Video: Highlights from the Atlanta Dream's 88-75 win over the Minnesota Lynx on August 20

NBA TV recap of the Atlanta Dream's 88-75 win over the Minnesota Lynx on August 20.

The Atlanta Dream and Minnesota Lynx split their two regular season meetings with each team winning at home.

With the Lynx being the favorite coming into the 2013 WNBA Finals, a few notes on how the Dream won in Atlanta on August 20:

  • The Minnesota Lynx gave up 25 points off of 19 turnovers. The Lynx committed 8 of those turnovers in the fourth quarter alone.
  • Maya Moore committed a game-high 5 turnovers, though three were dead ball turnovers (and two were offensive fouls, one of which was highly questionable).
  • The Dream outscored the Lynx 22-5 during the fourth quarter on 64.3% shooting. They did it with a small lineup primarily consisting Alex Bentley-Tiffany Hayes-Armintie Herrington-Angel McCoughtry-Erika de Souza. Jasmine Thomas was in the lineup early in the quarter for Herrington.
  • The strong fourth quarter shooting performance helped the Dream outshoot the Lynx 47.7% to 41.4% from the field for the game. But through the first three quarters, the Lynx were outshooting the Dream 48.2% to 43.1%.
  • The Lynx won the offensive rebounding battle 15-9 but the Dream managed to convert their 9 second chance opportunities more efficiently winning the second chance points battle 14-8.
  • Aneika Henry, who has played a significant role in the Dream's playoff run, only played 3:43 of that game in Atlanta with de Souza playing 37:08. Henry's presence on the boards should help if the Dream want to small.
