ATLANTA (AP) - Erika De Souza scored 17 points and Angel McCoughtry added 16 to lead the surging Atlanta Dream to a 76-60 victory over the struggling Indiana Fever on Tuesday.
The Dream, winners of four straight, lead the WNBA with a franchise-best 8-1 record.
Shavonte Zellous finished with 18 points and Karima Christmas had 16 for Indiana, which dropped to 1-7. The Fever are without injured scoring threats Tamika Catchings and Katie Douglas, who have back injuries. The seven-game losing streak is Indiana's longest since its inaugural season in 2000.
The defending WNBA champions had just eight available players, with Catchings sidelined for the second straight game and Douglas out for the sixth.
The Dream took their first double-digit lead at 32-22 on Jasmine Thomas' 3 with 3:27 left in the second quarter.
Indiana cut the lead to three early in the third on Christmas' three-point play, but Thomas added another 3 a few minutes later to make it 46-36.
