Fever Clinch Playoff Berth

Last updated on Monday, September 8, 2008

(ATLANTA, GA) - The Indiana Fever’s four-game road trip continues tonight in Atlanta as they face the lowly Dream.

The Fever are 14-and-16 and had a two-game winning streak halted at Detroit on Friday night.

Despite the loss, their magic number was down to one heading into Sunday's game between the Chicago Sky and the New York Liberty at Madison Square Garden. Indiana clinched the fourth and final playoff berth in the eastern conference when Chicago lost to the Liberty, knocking the Sky out of playoff contention.

The Dream are just 3-and-28, but one of those three wins came against Indiana at Conseco Fieldhouse on July 16th. The Fever have won two of the previous three games with Atlanta this season.

Following tonight's game, the road trip concludes Tuesday at Minnesota. The Fever will wrap up the regular season with home games on Thursday against New York and Sunday against Phoenix.

The playoffs will open at Conseco Fieldhouse on either September 18th or the 19th against either Connecticut, Detroit or New York.
