Rosemont, IL (Sports Network) - Sylvia Fowles recorded a double-double with 21
points and 12 rebounds as the Chicago Sky rallied on the fourth quarter to
edge the Atlanta Dream, 71-69, on Sunday.
Shay Murphy added 13 points, while Sonja Petrovic had 12 and Lecoe Willingham
finished with 11 for the Sky, who snapped a four-game losing streak.
Angel McCoughtry paced the Dream with 21 points, Sancho Lyttle contributed 18
points and seven rebounds, and Lindsey Harding netted 13 points for Atlanta,
which saw its three-game win streak come to an end.
Atlanta carried a 54-46 lead heading into the fourth quarter, but the Sky
opened the frame with a 22-7 run to go ahead, 68-61, with less than three
minutes remaining in the game.
The Dream responded with eight straight points, capped by back-to-back three
pointers by McCoughtry and Lyttle, to take a 69-68 advantage with just under a
minute left in the game.
But a pair of free throws by Fowles put Chicago back on top and after Courtney
Vandersloot made one of two from the line, Harding's potential game-tying
jumper at the buzzer was no good, sealing the win for the Sky.
