ATLANTA (AP) -- Angel McCoughtry scored 24 points, Lindsey Harding added 14 and the Atlanta Dream snapped a two-game losing streak with a 76-68 victory over the Chicago Sky on Saturday night.
Sylvia Fowles finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds for the Sky (7-8), who have lost five straight on the road.
Chicago missed 11 of its first 12 shots, but overcame a 15-point first-quarter deficit by going on a 40-17 run that ended with Cathrine Kraayeveld's 3-pointer and a 42-35 Sky lead with 7:56 left in the third.
But Atlanta (4-9) never trailed after Courtney Paris' layup made it 56-54 in the first minute of the fourth.
Armintie Price handed out a career-high 10 assists and scored 13 points for the Dream.
