Vandersloot leads Sky past Dream 80-77

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (AP) - Courtney Vandersloot made a tiebreaking jumper from the top of the key with 20 seconds left the Sky to an 80-77 win over the Dream in the first game of their WNBA playoff series.

The game's decisive shot came after officials reviewed a loose ball scramble under Atlanta's basket and then called for a jump ball that Chicago center Syliva Fowles won over Atlanta center Erika de Souza with 42 seconds left. The game was tied 77-77 at the time.

Elena Delle Donne led Chicago with 21 points, though she did not score in the fourth quarter. Epiphanny Prince added 14 points, and Fowles had 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Sky. They beat Atlanta for the fourth time in six meetings this season, and third straight time.

Angel McCoughtry broke out of a shooting slump late to score 24 points, including seven straight late in the fourth quarter.
