The Atlanta Dream will begin its quest for a fifth consecutive trip to the WNBA playoffs when the team tips off the 2013 regular season with a home game against the Tulsa Shock on Saturday, May 25.

The Dream will play 17 home games this summer at Philips Arena, including 12 weekend/holiday dates.

The Dream’s 34-game schedule for 2013 will include 22 games against the other five teams from the Eastern Conference. The Dream will play five games against Connecticut and Washington, and four each against Chicago, Indiana and New York. The other 12 games will come against the six Western Conference teams, with one home and one road game against each.
