Video: Minnesota Lynx ready to win 2013 WNBA Finals on the road

Game highlights and behind-the-scenes footage from Game 2 of the 2013 WNBA Finals.

While the Minnesota Lynx are ready to put an end to the 2013 WNBA Finals on the road, the Atlanta Dream are apparently trying to make sure that The Arena at Gwinnett Center feel a bit more like home before tonight's Game 3 (8:30 EDT on ESPN2).

As described previously, the Dream couldn't host Games 3 and 4 (if necessary) at Philips Arena due to a scheduling conflict, which poses an additional challenge according to George Henry of the Associated Press: the need to counter Lynx wing Maya Moore's homecoming. Will Hammock of the Gwinnett Daily Post reported even before Game 1 that Lynx wing Maya Moore expects supporters from in and out of town to come support her

However, Dream coach Fred Williams is focused on a bigger problem in the Finals that could make any crowd effects moot: making shots.

The Dream planned a light workout Wednesday night to help McCoughtry and others get familiar with the new surroundings. Atlanta is 15-5 at Philips Arena this year, 6-15 in other venues.

"Hopefully we'll get used to the shooting conditions this evening and then again tomorrow morning at the shoot-around," Williams said. "It's going to be a little bit of an adjustment, but after we get a feel for the atmosphere, it's our job to make it our home floor."

In short, it won't really matter where the game is played if the Lynx are either shooting historically well or holding the Dream to dismal lows.
