The Indiana Fever have secured the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. However, they probably don't want to face the Atlanta Dream in the first round.
Those two teams will close the regular season against each other Sunday as the Dream look to complete a four-game sweep.
Indiana's spot atop the conference is the only one that has been decided in the East, with the other three seeds to be determined Sunday.
Atlanta (19-14) is tied with New York for third place. The Dream would clinch the third spot with a loss by the Liberty earlier in the afternoon to Connecticut or a win in their own game.
If both teams win, which would mean three teams finish 20-14, Atlanta would end up as the No. 4 seed by way of the tiebreaking procedure for three teams.
A fourth-place finish might not be the worst thing for the Dream, who would face the Fever in the first round. Atlanta has won all three meetings this season.
Angel McCoughtry came up big in the last one, scoring 28 points in a 92-90 win Aug. 30. A leading MVP candidate, McCoughtry is averaging 21.3 points this season - second in the league to Phoenix's Diana Taurasi - and has scored 28 or more in three of her last five games.
Atlanta has won three in a row overall and six of seven, and could be facing an Indiana team that may be resting a lot of its starters.
After securing the top seed in their previous game, the Fever (21-12) got out to a lackluster start against New York on Friday and lost 83-75. They scored 35 first-half points and were outrebounded 30-19.
Erin Phillips did not play after spraining her ankle versus Washington in the previous game and with nothing on the line Sunday, it seems likely she and other key Indiana players could get some rest.
Phillips' injury meant additional playing time for Shannon Bobbitt, who had a career-high 16 points, seven assists and four steals. She went 4 of 4 from beyond the arc.
"I knew that I had to step up my game and play a bigger role," Bobbitt said.
McCoughtry isn't the only MVP candidate in Sunday's game.
Indiana's Tamika Catchings is having a great season as well, averaging 15.5 points, 7.1 rebounds and 3.5 assists. Despite not having a win to show for it, she's been even better against Atlanta, averaging 21.3 points.
"Her effort is unmatched," Fever coach Lin Dunn said. "Whether she is scoring or rebounding or getting a big steal or a block, she makes big plays every time on the floor."
Unsurprisingly, Dream coach Marynell Meadors said her vote would go to McCoughtry, who scored 35 points in an 85-74 win over Connecticut on Tuesday.
"It's no question that she is having an MVP season," Meadors said. "She's playing her game within our offensive and defensive structure. She's really focused in on helping this team win games."
