The Atlanta Dream orchestrated a 25-0 run over the second and third quarters, and led by as many as 39 points at Mohegan Sun Arena to decimate the Sun, 94-62, their worst loss of the season.
Update (10:20 p.m.): The loss was also the worst in franchise hsitory. The 32-point setback eclipsed the Sun's 29-point loss to Indiana in May 2008. The 86 points the Sun gave up through three quarters also set a franchise mark. The Dream had tied the previous record of 81 points in a victory over the Sun on May 21 at Philips Arena.
McCoughtry scored 20 points, and Iziane Castro Marques, held scoreless less than two weeks ago here, added 17 for Atlanta (17-9).
They weren’t even the worst of Connecticut’s (13-11) problems. The Sun committed a season-high 23 turnovers, were outshot, 88-68, and never even made it a game in the second half. Atlanta scored the final 13 points of the second quarter and the first 12 of the third.
Asjha Jones led the Sun with 16 points, 12 coming in the first half.
