WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sancho Lyttle hit a 13-footer with less than a second remaining to give the Atlanta Dream a 72-70 comeback win over the Washington Mystics on Tuesday night.

Angel McCoughtry scored 19 points for Atlanta (10-11), which has now won seven of its last nine. Erika DeSouza added 18 points and 12 rebounds for her seventh double-double of the season.

Matee Ajavon scored 17 of her 28 points in the fourth quarter, but couldn't prevent the Mystics from falling to their second last-second loss in three games.

Crystal Langhorne added 23 points, as Washington (4-15) put together a 19-6 run during the fourth quarter to take a 67-61 lead, only to see Atlanta close the game out on a 11-3 spurt.
