Dream Vs. Shock Score: Angel McCoughtry's 22 Points Lead Atlanta To 41-26 Halftime Advantage

Angel McCoughtry picked right up where she left off before the All-Star break scoring 22 first half points to help the Atlanta Dream to a 41-26 advantage over the Tulsa Shock. Atlanta has played well at both ends of the floor holding the Shock to less than 30 percent shooting in the first half. 

McCoughtry has been a one woman wrecking crew hitting 8 of 12 field goal attempts and six of eight free throw attempts. No other Atlanta player attempted more than six shots and no one else is in double figures. Coco Miller returned from an ankle injury to score six points in nearly four minutes of action in the first half. 

The Shock were a mess offensively in the first half turning the ball over 13 times in addition to their sub par shooting percentage. Jennifer Lacy leads Tulsa with seven points in the first half while Liz Cambage tossed in five. 

Atlanta forward Sancho Lyttle did not dress once again due to a back injury.
