Quotable: “Atlanta is one of the most athletic teams in the league and has an outstanding guard in Tiffany Hayes. She is a tough individual matchup who can score in all three phases – from the arc, mid-range and by getting herself to the basket. The Dream is so dangerous in transition that we have to have a good night in transition defense and limit our live ball turnovers, which Atlanta can turn into easy points.”
