   ATLANTA (AP) -- Angel McCoughtry scored 23 points, and Erika de Souza had 16 points and 11 rebounds to help the Atlanta Dream beat the Chicago Sky 88-74 on Sunday.
 
   Tiffany Hayes also had 16 points for Atlanta (5-1), and Jasmine Thomas added 13. Elena Delle Donne led Chicago (4-2) with 25 points, Allie Quigley had 14, and Sylvia Fowles finished with 10 rebounds.
 
   The Dream led by 18 points in the first quarter, but didn't pull away until going on a 20-10 run in the fourth quarter that included nine straight points after the Sky cut it to six.
 
   Chicago made just one of its first 11 shots, and Atlanta jumped to a 16-2 lead and led 34-18 at the end of the first quarter after making 4 of 5 shots 3-pointers. The Sky cut it to 51-47 at intermission, with Delle Donne scoring 12 of her 16 first-half points in the second quarter.
 
   McCounghtry had 14 points at the break for the Dream, and de Souza had 10. Atlanta shot 52.9 percent (18 of 34) in the first half and hit 6 of 7 3-pointers.
 
   Quigley scored 12 of her 14 first-half points for Chicago in the opening quarter. The Sky shot 58.8 percent (10 of 17) in the second quarter and were 11 of 11 from the foul line at intermission.
 
   The Dream held Chicago without a basket for nearly 5 minutes and used a 9-0 run to break a tie and take a 66-57 lead at the end of the third quarter. The Sky cut it to 68-64 early in the fourth quarter.
 
   Each team was missing a key player. Epiphanny Prince, averaging 20.7 points to lead the Sky, is playing for the Russian national team. Sancho Lyttle, the Dream's leading rebounder and second-leading scorer, is with Spain's national team.
