(May 8, 2018 WTTV)

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Victoria Vivians scored a career-best 21 points to help the Indiana Fever win their first game of the season, beating the Atlanta Dream 96-64 on Saturday night.

Angel McCoughtry led the Dream (6-5) with 19 points and eight rebounds and Renee Montgomery added 12 points.

Tiffany Hayes and Stephanie Mavunga suffered ankle injuries in the third quarter and each had to be helped off the court.
