Dream edge Sky in OT

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Tiffany Hayes made the go-ahead free throws in the final minute of overtime to send the Atlanta Dream past the Chicago Sky, 81-79, on Sunday.

Hayes finished with 17 points, while Angel McCoughtry put up a game-high 33 points to go with 10 rebounds in the Dream's fourth straight win. Sancho Lyttle also recorded a double-double with 12 points and 13 boards.

Allie Quigley totaled 27 points to lead the Sky, but the club dropped its fifth game in a row. Sylvia Fowles racked up 17 points and 14 boards in defeat.

Atlanta never trailed in the fourth quarter but did not make a field goal in regulation after a McCoughtry 3-pointer yielded a 72-68 lead with 3:35 left.

Epiphanny Prince had a chance to give Chicago the lead at the foul line with 3.7 seconds to go but only made 1-of-2 from the stripe to tie things at 73-73.

After McCoughtry turned the ball over, Fowles missed a shot at the buzzer to send the game to overtime.

Hayes' two free throws broke a 79-79 tie with 29.3 ticks left in the extra session, and after misses by Quigley and Fowles, the teams traded turnovers and the clock struck zero.
