Dream’s Rhyne Howard hits 6 3s, scores career-high 43 in win

COLLEGE PARK, Ga. — Rhyne Howard hit six 3-pointers and shot 14 of 20 for a career-high 43 points — one less than Atlanta’s single-game franchise record — and helped the Dream score their one-off . He posted an in-game points record on Sunday, defeating the Los Angeles Sparks 112-84.

Allisha Gray scored 15 points and Nia Coffey 13 for the Dream. Atlanta (7-8), who have won back-to-back games after three games, set a season-high for points in a game, surpassing 100 points for the second time this season.

Howard made 9 of 12 from the field and had 25 points before halftime — a franchise record for first-half points and the most points by a WNBA player in one half this season.

Nneka Ogwumike led Los Angeles (7-10) with 25 points. Dearica Hamby had 18 with eight rebounds, Azura Stevens added 13 points and nine boards, and Zia Cooke had 11 points.

Howard’s 40-point performance was the fifth in the WNBA season, a record for a single season. The previous high was three (2006, ’08, ’15).
