ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Tiffany Hayes scored 23 points to help Atlanta hold off the Dallas Wings 77-73 on Sunday for the Dream's first back-to-back road wins of the season.

Elizabeth Williams gave the Dream (7-22) the lead for good on a putback with 1:05 left and Hayes scored a driving layup with 21 seconds left to make it 75-71.

Isabelle Harrison cut the deficit back to two for the Wings (9-20), but Hayes made two free throws with 10 seconds left to secure the win.

Atlanta started to pull away with a run late in the second quarter and extended the lead to 60-40 late in the third.

Dallas erased the deficit when Arike Ogunbowale's free throw with 2:01 left tied it at 71.

Ogunbowale scored 29 points for the Wings, her sixth straight 20-point game and 13th of the season, which passed Odyssey Sims' franchise record for most 20-point games in a season by a Dallas rookie.

Williams returned after missing the last two games for personal reasons.
