ATLANTA (AP) Angel McCoughtry scored 30 points, Erika de Souza had 18 points and 15 rebounds, and the Atlanta Dream snapped a four-game skid with an 88-57 victory over the Connecticut Sun on Friday night.
McCoughtry, the WNBA's leading scorer, missed only two shots, going 9 for 11 from the field and hitting all 11 of her free throws.
Iziane Castro-Marques finished with a season-high 18 points for the Sun, who have lost four of five and suffered the franchise's third-worst loss in 11 seasons at Connecticut.
The Sun missed their first 16 shots before Castro-Marques hit a 3-pointer to make it 18-5 with 37 seconds left in the first quarter.
