ATLANTA (AP) - Emma Meesseman scored a career-high 30 points, Kristi Toliver added 19 and the Washington Mystics held on for a 77-70 win over the Atlanta Dream on Sunday.
Elena Delle Donne had 10 points and Krystal Thomas grabbed 15 rebounds for Washington (14-9), which has won three in a row and four of its last five.
Toliver hit two 3-pointers and Meesseman scored four points during an 11-0 run that gave the Mystics a 13-4 lead midway through the first quarter and Atlanta trailed the rest of the way. A 14-4 spurt, including two more 3s by Toliver, gave Washington a 44-28 lead, its biggest of the game, with 17 seconds left in the first half.
Sancho Lyttle's jumper trimmed the Dream's deficit to 74-68 with 5:09 to play, but Atlanta (10-13) scored just two points, on 1-of-10 shooting, from there.
Elizabeth Williams led five Dream players in double figures with 18 points. Layshia Clarendon had 11 points and 10 assists.
