WASHINGTON (AP) -- Angel McCoughtry scored a season-high 33 points to lead the Atlanta Dream to an 86-79 victory over the Washington Mystics on Wednesday.

The Dream won their first road game since June 14, when they beat the New York Liberty before beginning a three-game road skid.

Atlanta went on a 6-0 run down the stretch to seal the victory, getting baskets from Sandora Irvin, Armintie Price and Lindsey Harding, before the Mystics began intentionally fouling. McCoughtry also set season highs with 10 field goals, 11 free throws made and 17 free-throw attempts.

Crystal Langhorne had 24 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and three steals for the Mystics. Marissa Coleman added 21 points, including 5-of-8 shooting on 3-pointers and Nicky Anosike grabbed 14 rebounds.
