ATLANTA (AP) - Cappie Pondexter scored 22 points and the Chicago Sky beat the Atlanta Dream 98-96 on Saturday night.

Chicago - which qualified for the playoffs with its third win in a row - was without WNBA scoring leader Elena Delle Donne, who missed the game with a foot injury.

Atlanta led 91-90 with 1:45 to go but Erika de Souza scored off an offensive rebound, Jessica Breland hit a jumper and Courtney Vandersloot made two free throws to put Chicago up five with 36 seconds left.

Angel McCoughtry made a jumper, was fouled and made the free throw to cut it to two with 30 seconds. After a turnover, Atlanta had several good looks to tie on the next possession, but McCoughtry missed twice and the Sky held on.

Chicago (18-11) led 52-45 at the break.



McCoughtry led Atlanta (12-17) with 33 points. The Dream had won three in a row.
