by Frisco Del Rosario on November 3, 2014

Visiting Chicago led by 18 points with 11 minutes to play, while shooting 60 percent, but Atlanta went on a 28-10 tear to tie the game 83-83 with 1:19 remaining.

The Dream didn’t cover -4.5 in the final minute, but relieved their bettors by going to overtime. However, the Sky scored the first four points in OT on a Candice Dupree hook, then a fastbreak layup following an Atlanta turnover. Dupree led Chicago with 20 points and 10 rebounds. 

The 151.5 total was crossed with 6:22 left in regulation.

Chicago maintained their incredible three-point shooting rate, hitting 7-of-15. Atlanta, which won big on the boards in their home wins, lost the rebound race 31-30 in Chicago’s first road win of the year.

Atlanta, 5-2 on the over, has allowed 192 points in two straight losses. A Dream blogger said rookie Angel McCoughtry’s 26 points and 8 rebounds was the best individual performance by an Atlanta player this season.
