Dream down Mystics in Game 3, advance to East finals

Erika de Souza netted 10 of her 18 points in the fourth quarter of the Atlanta Dream's 80-72 win over the Washington Mystics in the deciding Game 3 of their WNBA Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Tiffany Hayes added 18 points as well for the Dream, who trailed 57-55 after three quarters of play but began the final frame on a 14-2 run to seize control of the contest.

Atlanta, which is in the Eastern Conference finals for the third time in four years, will play the fourth-seeded and defending WNBA champion Indiana Fever, who took out the top-seeded Chicago Sky in two games. That series will begin Thursday in Atlanta.

The Dream held a commanding 39-24 advantage on the glass.

Monique Curry had 22 points to lead the Mystics, who led 22-20 after a quarter of play and 41-39 at the break.
