Lynx, Dream ready to face off in WNBA finals
“There are some people who are still getting used to the Minnesota Lynx being a dominant team and waiting for the moment where we’re going to fall apart,” Reeve said. “We’ve handled all of those things well and been very determined and very hungry.”
Atlanta lost seven of its first nine games. The Dream finished the regular season on an 11-3 tear and upset No. 1 seed Indiana in the Eastern Conference finals.
“Been a long time,” Dream coach Marynell Meadors said of when the teams played in June. “Seems like it was two years ago. I just feel like we’ve gotten better, but they’ve also gotten better. So I think it’s going to be a great series.”
The Dream won’t have starting 6-foot-5 center Erica De Souza for Game 1 while she plays with the Brazilian national team in an Olympic qualifying tournament. She is expected to be back for Game 2, but the Dream seemed to have found something by going with a smaller, quicker lineup.
“We love being the underdog. We do,” Meadors said. “One thing about it, we’ve been there, we know what it takes to win. We’ve just got to go to play.”
