TULSA, Okla. (AP) Angel McCoughtry had 23 points and nine rebounds, and Damiris Dantas added a career-high 18 points to help the Atlanta Dream beat Tulsa Shock 98-90 on Sunday to end a six-game skid.

Roneeka Hodges had 14 points, Shoni Schimmel added 13, and DeLisha Milton-Jones finished with a season-high 12.

A 3-pointer by McCoughtry midway through the second quarter sparked a 19-8 run that gave Atlanta (8-14) a 50-38 lead with 41 seconds left in the half.

Riquna Williams hit a 3 with 7:24 left in the third to pull Tulsa (10-13) within one, but the Dream scored 15 of the next 21 points to make it 69-59 about 3 minutes later and the Shock never threatened again.

Williams scored 35 points and Karima Christmas added 18 for Tulsa. The Shock have lost nine in a row, including five straight at home.

It was Atlanta's highest-scoring game of the season.
