ATLANTA (AP) - Angel McCoughtry scored 22 points, Alex Bentley added 17 and the Atlanta Dream snapped a four-game losing streak with a 74-65 victory over the Connecticut Sun on Wednesday night.

Tina Charles finished with 14 points and a season high 16 rebounds for Connecticut (4-12), which has lost three straight and dropped to 1-7 on the road.

Atlanta held the Sun to 20 points in the first half, the lowest output by an opponent in the Dream's six-year history. The previous low was 21 two years ago at Seattle.

The Dream (11-5) took their first double-digit lead with 1:15 left in the first on McCoughtry's runner. McCoughtry padded the lead to 22 in the final minute of the second.

Erika de Souza had 13 points and 10 rebounds for Atlanta, which improved to 8-0 at home.
