McCoughtry leads Dream to 70-58 win over Indiana
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
ATLANTA (AP) -- Angel McCoughtry scored 22 points, Sancho Lyttle added 17 and the Atlanta Dream won consecutive games for the first time this season with a 70-58 victory over the Indiana Fever on Tuesday.
Tamika Catchings missed her first six shots from the field and finished with a season-low eight points for the Fever.
Katie Douglas and Jessica Davenport each added eight as Indiana did not have anyone score in double figures.
McCoughtry, the WNBA's scoring leader, went without a point in the first quarter, but had a combined 18 points in the second and third quarters.
The Fever took their biggest lead at eight in the final minute of the first quarter, but their offense all but disappeared -- going 1-for-15 from the field -- in the second.
Cathrine Kraayeveld's lane runner ended a 19-1 run at the 4:37 mark of the second that put the Dream up 29-19.
