(SB Nation Atlanta - Kris Willis) The Atlanta Dream snapped a two-game losing streak with a 60-57 win over the San Antonio Silver Stars Friday night at Philips Arena.

The Dream overcame 23 turnovers and 39 percent shooting to snap their streak. The game was tight throughout but Atlanta grabbed the lead for good in the fourth and held on when San Antonio was unable to get a game-tying attempt off on the final possession.

Angel McCoughtry overcame a slow start to the game to finish with a team-high 16 points. Lindsey Harding added 14 points and Armintie Price 10 for the Dream. Sancho Lyttle and Yelena Leuchenka finished with nine points each. Leuchenka's nine were the only point Atlanta got from its bench in the game.

Sophia Young led all scorers with 21 points and was the only San Antonio player in double figures. Jia Perkins and Danielle Adams finished with nine points each. Becky Hammon finished with just seven points, four assists and four turnovers.

San Antonio head coach Dan Hughes was ejected early in the second quarter after he protested a foul call.
