ATLANTA (AP) – The free-throw line was not kind to the Atlanta Dream in their Game 2 WNBA finals loss in Minnesota.

The Lynx were sent to the line so many times Atlanta’s players and coach cried foul. But the Dream couldn’t blame the officials for their poor free-throw shooting which left them on the brink of being swept in the league championship series for the second straight year.

Minnesota’s 101-95 comeback victory over Atlanta on Wednesday night gave the Lynx a 2-0 advantage in the best-of-five series. The series shifts to Atlanta, where the Dream must win on Friday night to avoid a sweep.

Seattle swept Atlanta in last year’s finals.

Seimone Augustus scored 36 points for Minnesota and Angel McCoughtry set a finals record with 38 for Atlanta.
