ATLANTA (AP) - Angel McCoughtry matched a season high with 33 points, Tiffany Hayes hit the clinching free throws with 29 seconds remaining and the Atlanta Dream beat the Chicago Sky 81-79 in overtime Sunday for their fourth straight victory.

The Dream (15-5) looked sluggish after winning Saturday night at Indiana, shooting a season-low 35 percent from the field and finding it difficult to put away a Chicago team that's lost five straight and 12 of 15.

Allie Quigley finished with a career-high 27 points in a reserve role, and Sylvia Fowles, who missed a layup at the regulation buzzer that would've won the game, had 17 points and 14 rebounds for the Sky (8-13).

Sancho Lyttle scored 12 points and 13 rebounds, and Erika de Souza added eight points and 11 rebounds for Atlanta.
