Roneeka Hodges scored 20 points, Temeka Johnson had 17 and the Tulsa Shock beat the short-handed Atlanta Dream 84-80 on Tuesday night to snap a 13-game road losing streak.
The Dream played without guard Angel McCoughtry, who was suspended indefinitely before the game by new coach and general manager Fred Williams for breaking an unspecified team rule. McCoughtry is the WNBA's leading scorer and helped the U.S. women win the gold medal at the London Olympics.
Erika de Souza scored 16 points and Sancho Lyttle had 14 for Atlanta, which has lost two straight and three of five to drop to 12-13 this season.
Tulsa, which dropped its last three road games of 2011, improved to 1-10 this season away from home.
