Nobody said the Atlanta Dream would make a sweep easy. So that this is another close game is no surprise.
Angel McCoughtry is on fire thus far going 7-for-11 for 19 points but it’s not due to a failure in Storm defense – she’s making some very difficult off-balance, contested shots that just weren’t falling in KeyArena.
However, perhaps it’s encouraging for the Storm that they’ve even as close as they are with Lauren Jackson only having four points in the first half. Sue Bird and Tanisha Wright are leading the way for the Storm with nine points apiece and Bird has been particularly aggressive going to the basket, which certainly gives the Storm an added dimension.
