ATLANTA (AP) - Angel McCoughtry had 15 points and a career high-tying 10 assists, and the undefeated Atlanta Dream took control with 12 consecutive points in the third quarter to beat the New York Liberty 75-56 on Friday night.
Sancho Lyttle scored 18 points to lead the Dream (4-0), who are off to their best start since winning their first six games in 2010.
Kara Braxton led the Liberty (2-2) with 14 points and was the team's only scorer in double figures.
New York forward Essence Carson was carried off the floor after hurting her left knee with 3:56 remaining in the first half. Carson was driving on a fast-break attempt when her leg appeared to give way as she attempted to make a cut near the basket.
Carson did not return to the game. There was no immediate report on the severity of the injury.
