Nightmarish numbers for Dream

The numbers don’t look very promising for the Atlanta Dream, who trail the Minnesota Lynx 2-0 and face elimination Thursday night in the WNBA Finals on the road. For starters, the Dream are 0-8 all time in WNBA Finals games. Making matters worse, every team that has held a 2-0 lead in a best-of-five WNBA Finals series has gone on to be crowned in Game 3. Minnesota is the most recent team to continue that trend, sweeping – you guessed it, the Dream – in Game 3 in 2011.
