Lynx Come Up Shortest of All Against Dream on Thursday

In case you didn't know yet, the Atlanta Dream moved to 13-4 on the regular season with a win over the visiting Minnesota Lynx by a score of 76-58 on Thursday Night.

The actual game night box score is here.

Pierce W. Huff of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution explains the victory.

All in all, the Lynx score 29.9 percent for the night. I'd have to go over a lot of old box scores, but I don't remember the Dream ever holding an opponent to less than 30 percent. That the Lynx broke 50 was a surprise; if the Dream hadn't put Brittainey Raven in without about eight minutes left in the final quarter they might have been able to hold the Lynx to under 50...that is, if they weren't dead tired.

Twice in the Dream's history - last year against Connecticut and this year against Indiana - we held an opposing team to 62 points. That was our previous record, and the Lynx now how the Dream franchise record for Fewest Points Scored by an Opposing Team in a Game.

Monica Wright: 1-for-8 from the floor. When is someone going to fix that?

Good job, Dream. I don't expect us to beat Chicago tonight, but I'd sure love to see it. I'll be there!
