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.

McCoughtry, the WNBA's scoring leader, added nine rebounds, eight assists and three steals for the Dream (16-13), who have won two straight after dropping 12 of 17.

The Dream never trailed after McCoughtry and Armintie Herrington combined for a steal before McCoughtry assisted on a fastbreak layup by de Souza that made it 79-77 with 3:09 left in overtime.
