NEW YORK (AP) - Cappie Pondexter scored 23 points to help the New York Liberty beat the Atlanta Dream 85-78 on Sunday, snapping a five-game losing streak.

Trailing 40-29 late in the second quarter, Pondexter took control of the game. She helped New York (4-10) to a 29-6 run over the next 10 minutes. Pondexter moved to more of a facilitator role on offense and the Liberty responded.

New York led 58-46 with 2:23 left in the third quarter before Atlanta (9-4) rallied.

The Dream, who had matched a franchise record with six straight wins, closed to 58-54 after three quarters.

The Liberty led by four early in the fourth before Pondexter hit a 3-pointer and a layup to make it 67-60 early in the fourth. They extended the advantage to 12 before Atlanta closed to 77-72 with 1:11 left on Angel McCoughtry's layup.

Tina Charles hit a foul line jumper just before the shot clock expired to seal the win.
