McCoughtry's 32 Leads Dream to Win


ATLANTA (AP) - Angel McCoughtry scored 32 points and Atlanta survived a third-quarter collapse to pull out an 84-76 victory over the New York Liberty on Sunday.
    
The victory was the first for Atlanta (6-7) in three meetings with the Liberty this season and the first in six matchups against New York, which had a three-game winning streak end.
    
McCoughtry hit 12 of 19 free throws in a game that featured 70 attempts. McCoughtry has scored in double figures in every game this season and 19 in a row overall. Rookie Cierra Burdick added 12 points, a career-high, as did Sydney Carter, making her first start.
    
After trailing since the first quarter, Tina Charles' four straight points put the Liberty (7-5) in front 69-67 with 5:47 remaining. But Atlanta bounced back and the Dream finished with a 9-2 run over the final three minutes to secure the win.
