ATLANTA (AP) - Angel McCoughtry and Erika De Souza each scored 20 points, and the Atlanta Dream beat the Chicago Sky 97-59 on Saturday night.

The 38-point margin of victory set an Atlanta franchise record.

Sancho Lyttle had 15 points and 12 rebounds for Atlanta (5-3). De Souza had eight rebounds for the Dream, who held a 51-32 advantage.

Chicago's Elena Delle Donne, who scored a career-high 33 points Friday in a 102-88 loss to Los Angeles, had a season-low seven and made only three of 10 shots. Allie Quigley led the Sky with 11 points. Jessica Breland had 10.

Delle Donne, the 2013 WNBA rookie of the year who began the night second in the league with a 24.4 points average, scored only two first-half points.

Atlanta, which led 56-31 at the break, set season marks for most points scored and fewest allowed in a half.
