Angel McCoughtry scored 30 points and Erika de Souza added 17 points and 14 rebounds to help the Atlanta Dream clinch a playoff spot with an 89-80 overtime victory over the Indiana Fever on Wednesday night.
Tamika Catchings finished with 22 points and Erlana Larkins had 10 points and a career-high 17 rebounds for Indiana (13-16), which has lost five of six.
