Dream advance to East finals
In Atlanta, Erika de Souza scored 10 of her 18 points during a decisive fourth quarter and the Atlanta Dream beat the Washington Mystics 80-72 win in the decisive Game 3 of their WNBA first-round series Monday night.
The Dream advanced to face the fourth-seeded Indiana Fever in the Eastern Conference Finals, which will begin Thursday in Atlanta.

Tiffany Hayes scored 18 points and Armintie Herrington added 14 points for the Dream, while Monique Currie led the Mystics with 22 points.
The Dream trailed 57-55 after three quarters, but a 15-2 run early in the fourth quarter put Atlanta in position to advance to the Eastern Conference finals for the third time in four years. De Souza had six points during the run, emotionally gesturing to the crowd as Atlanta took control.
Torres will miss start of season
The San Jose Sharks will be without forward Raffi Torres for the start of the season because of an injured right knee.
Torres was injured in a collision with Anaheim forward Emerson Etem on Friday night.
Torres and the Sharks will decide in the next few days whether he needs surgery. If he rehabs the injury, he might miss only the first month. If he needs surgery, he would likely be sidelined for three to four months.
• The St. Louis Blues added depth at forward, signing veteran Brenden Morrow to a one-year contract.
The 34-year-old Morrow had six goals and eight assists in his final 15 regular-season games with Pittsburgh, which had acquired him from Dallas at the trade deadline.
