Atlanta Dream at Seattle Storm (SEA leads best of 5, 1-0)

9:00 PM ET -- Key Arena, Seattle, WA -- ESPN2

Seattle looks for a two-game lead in the WNBA Finals tonight on ESPN2. Seattle has won eight straight games going back to the end of the regular season and is a perfect 20-0 at home this season. Sue Bird is a big reason for the Storm's success. Bird drained the game-winning shot for Seattle in Game 1, hitting a jumper with 2.6 left. She finished the game with 14 points, while league MVP Lauren Jackson led Seattle with 26 points and eight rebounds. Atlanta's Angel McCoughtry and Iziane Castro Marques each had 19 points to lead the Dream in defeat.
