  4. No, the biggest showdown in town this afternoon isn’t on Northside Drive or Cobb Parkway. The real big game will be over on 10th Street in Midtown! The Atlanta Dream continue striving to demonstrate that their newfound offensive flow is no fluke, while the Washington Mystics pull out all the stops to ensure they remain the class of the WNBA East (3:00 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Southeast in ATL). With so many formidable Western Conference teams, everyone else knows that the way to ensure a spot in the WNBA Playoffs is to finish either first or second in the Eastern Conference. The Styx (13-8) have been tough in-conference (9-2 vs. WNBA East) and away from D.C. (5-3 on the road). Yet they embark on a 5-game road trip at an inopportune time, against an inopportune opponent that’s right over their shoulder in the conference standings. Atlanta (11-9, 4-1 in July) is hoping to enjoy their first four-game win streak since rattling off five straight back in May-June 2016. Highlighted by Wednesday’s rousing 106-89 win in the Mystics’ house, and a table-turning 98-74 home win over Indiana, it’s hard to recall a time when the Dream put forth 40-minute offensive efforts like this so consistently. While the win in Washington showcased the starters at their peak, the victory over the Fever displayed tremendous offensive balance. Seven Dreamettes tallied double-figures in points, a first in Atlanta’s decade-long history. The defense hasn’t gone far, either. After a slow start, the Dream throttled Indiana with a 30-7 advantage in the second quarter, before dropping 33 more points on the Fever in the third frame. Fourteen of the Dream’s 29 assists, plus 45 of their 98 points, came from the bench contributors, a stark difference from the prior game that allowed the starters to not over-exert themselves against a 2-19 outfit, mere days before today’s contest. Coach Mike Thibault’s crew licked their wounds from Wednesday and held off Chicago 88-72 on Friday night. Rookie Ariel Atkins (120.2 O-Rating in July, tops in WNBA) scored 25 points to match franchise star Elena Delle Donne, and the team rediscovered their rebounding and defensive chops. Center LaToya Sanders returned to action, having missed much of the second half versus Atlanta after catching an unfortunate and accidental Angel Wing on the noggin. “We were really upset after that game against Atlanta,” EDD (20.5 PPG, 2nd in WNBA) acknowledged after Friday’s home win, “and we needed to kind of clean it up tonight to get us ready to get on the road.” Atlanta can secure the season-series versus Washington with a victory today, which can be valuable in the event of playoff-seeding (or, playoff-securing) tie-breakers. With a trip to Connecticut on Tuesday, and a Thursday-night affair back home versus New York, this week is a prime opportunity for coach Nicki Collen’s club to put their imprint on the rest of the conference, just weeks ahead of the All-Star Break. Keeping up the fullcourt flow will make it tough to obscure not only Angel McCoughtry and Tiffany Hayes (18.2 PIE in July, best in WNBA East), but Jessica Breland and Renee Montgomery (21.3 Net Rating in July, 2nd in WNBA), from consideration as reserves for the forthcoming midseason classic in Minneapolis. Keeping up the winning ways will make it even tougher. Let’s Go Dream! ~lw3
  5. It's gonna be loud! Fans of MLS' two biggest crowd-drawing squads will rev up the Benz on a Sunday afternoon. The Seattle Sounders have struggled to get it going this season, and come into today's match with Atlanta United (2:00 PM Eastern, FOX, 92.9 FM in ATL) a bit shorthanded. But if anybody knows how to play in front of huge crowds, it's Seattle, the 2016 MLS Cup winner and reigning two-time MLS Western Conference champs who are accustomed to using the confines of CenturyLink Field as a home advantage. “I think our guys are used to big crowds and big atmospheres,” opined Sounders coach Brian Schmetzer, days ahead of today's action. “We’ve got a lot of big-time players who have played in big venues, pressure moments, stuff like that. I don’t think there’s anything negative about it. I’m hoping it actually has the opposite effect – that we go down there and go, ‘Hey, this is really cool, this is a big event. Let’s get after it.’ That’s what I’m hoping for.” Seattle (4-9-4 W-L-T) has had a hard time scoring since star forward and Seattle native Jordan Morris tore an ACL, ending his season mere days before the 2018 campaign (kicked off with CONCACAF Champions League play, in which they fell to eventual champ Guadalajara in the quarterfinals) began. The Sounders are the sole MLS club with fewer goals scored than games played (17). Also left behind in the Emerald City this weekend were star Clint Dempsey (groin), fellow midfielder and waning captain Ozzie Alonso, and defender Roman Torres (ankle). But there are reinforcements for Seattle, as a new designated player arrives. Peruvian striker Raul Ruidiaz has dazzled in Liga MX, and will likely be deployed by Schmetzer as a sub, particularly if the Sounders fall behind early. Injury-returning Sounders midfielder Gustav Svensson and savvy defensive midfielder Cristian Roldan (nope, no relation to THAT GUY who will be in town in a couple weeks) will be needed to help sustain possession and key transitions from a high-octane and increasingly pressing Atlanta offense (2.1 goals per game, 2nd in MLS behind upstart LAFC). Goalkeeper Stefan Frei has allowed just one goal in Seattle's last two contests, both on the road (2-1 win at Colorado, 0-0 tie at New England). Frei will graciously thank his possession-hogging teammates for taking some of the pressure off of him. That is, assuming they can hear him above the din of that raucous crowd. Let's Go United! ~lw3
