ATLANTA (AP) - Tiffany Hayes scored 21 points and Sancho Lyttle added 18 points and 10 rebounds to help the Atlanta Dream beat the Tulsa Shock 98-81 in the opener for both teams on Saturday night.

Riquna Williams had 16 of her 22 points in the second quarter for the Shock, who began the season hoping to shake off last year's 9-25 record and become a playoff contender.

Rookie point guard Skylar Diggins, the WNBA's third overall draft pick, finished with 15 points and Roneeka Hodges added 14 for Tulsa.

Atlanta's Angel McCoughtry, the league's leading scorer last year, finished with 16 points.
