The New York Liberty boast the WNBA's best record and are three wins away from clinching the Eastern Conference's top seed. The Atlanta Dream probably need to sweep their final five games to reach the postseason. The Liberty limited Dream star Angel McCoughtry to a pedestrian effort the last time these teams met and can push Atlanta closer to elimination on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.

The Minnesota Lynx came into the season as the prohibitive favorite to win their third WNBA championship in five seasons. Acquiring Olympian Sylvia Fowles in late July did nothing to change that. ''We're still just trying to get everything going,'' Maya Moore said after the team lost to New York on Friday night.

The Connecticut Sun team that beat the Chicago Sky back in June is far different than the one that will be trying to avoid its eighth straight defeat Sunday night. Chicago has recorded two wins over the last-place Sun since then, and it will be seeking to match a season high with a fourth straight victory. Connecticut (12-17) has played all season without last year's rookie of the year Chiney Ogwumike due to injury, but it started by winning seven of its first eight to take the early lead in the Eastern Conference.
