Angel McCoughtry (St. Frances) scored a WNBA playoff record 42 points to help the host Atlanta Dream beat the New York Liberty, 105-93, on Tuesday night to complete an unlikely march to the league finals. Cappie Pondexter led New York with 36 points and nine assists. McCoughtry, the 2009 Rookie of the Year, surpassed the 41 points that Tamika Whitmore scored for the Indiana Fever in 2006 and her own previous career high of 34. Pondexter's 36 points are the third highest ever in a playoff game.

Angel McCoughtry led the WNBA in scoring this season for the second year in a row. She was second in steals per game and a member of the All-WNBA Second Team, too. She has earned other accolades as well, including All-WNBA First Team honors in 2011 and Rookie of the Year in 2009. But something is missing for the Baltimore native: a WNBA championship. McCoughtry and her Atlanta Dream teammates are looking to change that starting Sunday with the first game of the WNBA Finals against the Minnesota Lynx.

WNBA Finals Injured McCoughtry misses at buzzer in Dream's Game 1 loss Sue Bird made a tiebreaking jumper from the foul line with 2.6seconds left and the Seattle Storm defeated the Atlanta Dream, 79-77, in Game 1 of the WNBA Finals on Sunday. Angel McCoughtry (St.Frances) had a last-second try for the Dream, but her long 3-pointer from the left side bounced off the far side of the rim at the buzzer. McCoughtry, who had 19 points, tying Iziane Castro Marques for team high, wound up with three stitches in her forehead after a collision with Seattle's Jana Vesela with 8:59 to play.

WNBA Finals, Game 5 Fever@Mercury 8 p.m. [ESPN2] Indiana missed a chance Wednesday night to clinch in front of Colts stars Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne. Let's see if the Cardinals' Kurt Warner and Larry Fitzgerald show up tonight in Phoenix for the decisive fifth game. What would they see? Maybe a Hail Mary basket put up by the Fever's Katie Douglas, near left, or the Mercury's Diana Taurasi.

Et cetera Storm wins WNBA crown; McCoughtry's 35 not enough The Seattle Storm beat the host Atlanta Dream, 87-84, on Thursday night to complete a three-game sweep in the WNBA Finals and an undefeated march through the postseason.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Tonight's deciding Game 3 of the WNBA Finals will either be the extension of the league's old guard or the beginning of a new age. In the Western corner stand the Los Angeles Sparks, who have won the previous two WNBA championships, following the four in a row won by the Houston Comets. In the Eastern corner stand the Detroit Shock, perhaps the best East team to contend for the championship since Houston won the league's inaugural 1997 title as an Eastern Conference team.

WASHINGTON - Last week, after the Washington Mystics had won their inaugural WNBA playoff game, Chamique Holdsclaw retold a joke that broke up the room of reporters. Holdsclaw said that Tausha Mills, a reserve center, had noted that the Mystics, for the first time, had a Coach of the Year winner. "And the coach is actually favored to come back next year," Holdsclaw said. The subject of the joke, coach Marianne Stanley, was sitting next to Holdsclaw and laughed harder than anyone else in the room, serving as testament to the notion that Stanley doesn't take herself all that seriously.

NEW YORK - It's often said, particularly in the NBA, that a team usually has to get its heart broken in the playoffs to be able to sow the seeds of a championship run down the line. If the Washington Mystics go on to win a title in the next few seasons, their 64-57 loss to the New York Liberty last night in the third and deciding game of the WNBA Eastern Conference final will, indeed, have been the genesis. After being drubbed by 17 points in Game 2 at Madison Square Garden, the Mystics returned last night and pushed the three-time Eastern champion Liberty nearly to its breaking point, twice coming back from double-digit deficits to trail by two with just under seven minutes to go. However, the playoff-callow Mystics, competing in their first conference final, wilted down the stretch as New York outscored them 12-7 late.
