The Atlanta Dream will face off against the Washington Mystics tonight in the opening round of the 2010 WNBA playoffs

Dream headed to post-season

Lead by forward Angel McCoughtry, the Dream finished fourth in the Eastern Conference with a 19-15 regular season record. 2010 marks the second straight year the Dream will contest the post-season.

Tonight’s game will be played in Washington. The first game of the series to be played in Atlanta will be this Friday, Aug. 27.

Unlike the NBA, the WNBA’s semifinal and conference final series are a best-of-three format.

Tickets are still available for Friday’s game at Philip’s Arena.
