INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Angel McCoughtry led Atlanta to its third WNBA Finals spot in four years, scoring 27 points in the Dream's 67-53 victory over the Indiana Fever on Sunday.

Seeking their first title, the Dream swept the best-of-three Eastern Conference finals. They will face Western Conference champion Minnesota, which swept Phoenix.

Dream center Erika de Souza added 12 points and eight rebounds. Atlanta dominated inside, making 14 layups, scoring 48 points in the paint and controlling the glass, 43-33.

Tamika Catchings led Indiana with 24 points and six rebounds. The short-handed Fever were trying to become the first team to win consecutive titles since Los Angeles in 2001 and 2002.

Atlanta dominated the second half behind smothering defense. Indiana shot 28.1 percent for the game and went 7 for 32 after intermission. All-Star Shavonte Zellous was held to six points, nearly nine below her regular-season average.
