Atlanta at Phoenix

4 units on Atlanta +11.5 (-105) (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: LOSS

If there was ever a team that could have quit, look no further than the Atlanta Dream who opened the season at 0-17. Ever since losing in OT on the road at Connecticut, this team has begun to believe. The Dream has dropped just two of their last 10 games by double-digits and has been 3-3 in their last six. Phoenix gets the flash points with its high-octane offense, but it hasn't helped them recently, as they have struggled to a 2-5 mark over their last seven games. Their problem is giving up 94.7 points per game in this stretch, and the potent offense hasn't been able to outscore their lackluster defense. The Dream has shown a vast improvement from a team that dropped eight of their first 13 by 10+, and we like them to hang tough here.
