Rosemont, IL (Sports Network) - Sylvia Fowles recorded a double-double with 21 points and 12 rebounds as the Chicago Sky rallied on the fourth quarter to edge the Atlanta Dream, 71-69, on Sunday.

Shay Murphy added 13 points, while Sonja Petrovic had 12 and Lecoe Willingham finished with 11 for the Sky, who snapped a four-game losing streak.

Angel McCoughtry paced the Dream with 21 points, Sancho Lyttle contributed 18 points and seven rebounds, and Lindsey Harding netted 13 points for Atlanta, which saw its three-game win streak come to an end.

Atlanta carried a 54-46 lead heading into the fourth quarter, but the Sky opened the frame with a 22-7 run to go ahead, 68-61, with less than three minutes remaining in the game.

The Dream responded with eight straight points, capped by back-to-back three pointers by McCoughtry and Lyttle, to take a 69-68 advantage with just under a minute left in the game.

But a pair of free throws by Fowles put Chicago back on top and after Courtney Vandersloot made one of two from the line, Harding's potential game-tying jumper at the buzzer was no good, sealing the win for the Sky.
