Dream star Angel McCoughtry is shooting just 26 percent from the field through the first two games of the WNBA Finals.

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.
