Early struggles continue as late 3 buries Lynx in Atlanta

Angel McCoughtry's late three won it for the Dream.

Angel McCoughtry's 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds left in the game ended the Lynx's nine-game winning streak against the Atlanta Dream. 

Minnesota was leading 74-73 when McCoughtry took the corner three and buried it for the finishing touches on Atlanta's 13-4 run to close the game. 

Maya Moore had a chance to win it but her three at the buzzer clanked off the back of the rim.
