ATLANTA (AP) - Angel McCoughtry scored 23 points and Jasmine Thomas added 13 to lead the Atlanta Dream over the Seattle Storm 68-59 on Friday night.
McCoughtry, last season's leading scorer in the WNBA, also had team highs with nine rebounds, seven assists and five steals to help as the Dream improve to 5-1.
Tina Thompson and Temeka Johnson scored 11 points apiece for Seattle, which dropped to 1-3.
Seattle, the league's lowest-scoring team, managed just four points in the third quarter - coming on two baskets by Johnson - and trailed by 16 before an 11-1 run pulled them to 58-52 on Camille Little's layup midway through the fourth. But that was as close as the Storm would get.
