McCoughtry scores 35, Dream beat Sun 85-74



Posted Sep 06 2011 10:45PM

ATLANTA (AP) Angel McCoughtry scored 35 points and the Atlanta Dream moved into third place in the Eastern Conference with an 85-74 victory over the Connecticut Sun on Tuesday night.

``She was superb,'' Atlanta coach Marynell Meadors said. ``When the stakes are high, she's at her best. She's played well against Connecticut. She's shot the ball very well every time we've played them. She's just really a great player.''

The loss dropped the Sun (20-13) a game behind first-place Indiana in the Eastern Conference. The Dream (19-14) is one game behind the Sun and half a game ahead of fourth-place New York.

Tina Charles had 17 points and 12 rebounds for Connecticut for her 22nd double-double of the season, matching the WNBA record she set last year. Renee Montgomery scored 16 for the Sun, which fell to 6-11 on the road.

``Angel McCoughtry just broke our whole team down,'' Charles said. ``She's a great player and she made some tough shots. But some of her shots, like the layups, we should have been able to hold her off.''

Connecticut cut a 13-point lead to three with just over four minutes left, but McCoughtry had eight points in an 12-2 run as the Dream quickly regained control. Sancho Lyttle had 12 points and 12 rebounds for Atlanta.

``I felt good,'' McCoughtry said. ``I felt more relaxed than I have in a long time. You always want to be at your best against the best teams and Connecticut is a challenge. We'll likely meet them again in the playoffs and I'm looking forward to it.''

McCoughtry came into the game averaging 28 points per game against Connecticut and had 36 points - one off her career high - in the teams' first meeting his season

The Sun finishes the regular season at home on Sunday against New York while Atlanta plays at Chicago.

The Dream used a nine-point run early in the third quarter to go up 57-45 and led by 14 points before settling for a 66-55 lead going into the final quarter.

McCoughtry, who opened the scoring with a 3-pointer, had 15 points at halftime as the Dream took a 48-42 lead. Charles had 11 points and six rebounds for the Sun in the first half.

``We just weren't very good,'' Sun coach Mike Thibault said. ``Our defense was bad in the first half and our offense was bad in the second half. It was not a top-flight performance.''
