The last time these teams met, Atlanta lost a close game. The Dream were held to 67 points in what was their second-lowest scoring output of the season. They haven't improved much offensively since then, made apparent by their bottom-two 42.6% field goal percentage over the last eight contests. Seattle is the only team that has shot worse than the Dream during that span. In August, the Storm's 97.4 offensive rating was the league's worst. Their defense, however, kept them afloat during that time as they allowed the fourth-fewest points per game (80.1) of any team.
