The Atlanta Dream open a three-game west coast road trip this afternoon, June 8, against the Las Vegas Aces at Mandalay Bay Events Center beginning at 3 p.m. ET. The game will be streamed on WNBA League Pass.
The Dream return to action after ending the Connecticut Sun’s perfect 5-0 regular-season record in an 82-77 upset Tuesday night. The Dream shot an impressive 50% from behind the arc, recording a new season-high shooting percentage. Tiffany Hayes led the Dream in scoring with 22 points and grabbed a season-high seven boards. Damiris Dantas came off the bench and finished with a season-high 15 points, five rebounds, and two assists.
This will be the first game against the Las Vegas Aces (formerly San Antonio Stars) this season. The Dream played against the Stars three times last year, resulting in a 2-1 record for Atlanta. The Aces drafted the No. 1 overall draft pick, A’ja Wilson, who is averaging 21 points for Las Vegas.
Following the Las Vegas matchup, the Dream will continue out west facing Seattle (6/10) and Los Angeles (6/12).
