ATLANTA -- The WNBA Finals will be played at the Arena at Gwinnett Center when the Atlanta Dream hosts its portion of the best-of-five series, reports the Gwinnett Daily Post.

The Dream's usual home, Philips Arena, isn't available for the WNBA Finals because it has "Disney on Ice: Let's Celebrate!" in town, the paper reports.

The Dream will host Game 3 Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8:30 p.m. at the Gwinnett arena, as well as Game 4 if necessary Sunday, Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. Both of those games are planned for ESPN2.
