The Minnesota Lynx look to shine on national television as they head down to the Peach State to take on the Atlanta Dream Saturday night. Top-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET, and the game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2.

This is the first matchup between the two teams since the 2012 WNBA Finals, where the Lynx swept the Dream for their first championship in franchise history.

Currently the Dream sit at 12-11, which is good for third in the Eastern Conference, and are on a bit of a roll lately. The Dream are 3-1 since the Olympics concluded, but could be without one of their biggest weapons Saturday night.

Leading scorer Angel McCoughtry has missed the last two games due to personal reasons and is currently listed as day-to-day. Not having McCoughtry would be a big blow to the Dream, as the 2012 Olympian has averaged 22.7 points a game for Atlanta this year.
