Dream win their franchise record 21st game

Even with the season ending injury to star Forward Angel McCoughtry, the Dream keep on rolling. Saturday afternoon, Atlanta won their 5th straight and 14th out of 15 with a 92-82 victory over Dallas. The win solidifies the Dream’s 2nd place standing heading into the final three games of the season. With a home playoff game looking likely, the city needs to come out and run with the Dream!

Braves fall 4-2 at home

A night after exploding for 10 runs, the Braves offense couldn’t keep pace as alumni weekend continued. After several strong outings, Jesse Biddle surrendered three runs in the 8th in what was the difference in the game. Atlanta falls to 63-51 on the season and drops to a game behind Philly for the Division lead. The two teams finish out the series this afternoon at SunTrust Park.
