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.

Meanwhile…

The Dream suspended WNBA scoring leader Angel McCoughtry indefinitely on Tuesday for violating team rules.

Dream spokeswoman Tonya Allene said that new coach and general manager Fred Williams told McCoughtry before a game against Tulsa that she was suspended.

It was unclear if McCoughtry’s feuding with former coach-GM Marynell Meadors, who was fired on Monday, played a role in Williams’ decision.

McCoughtry, who averages 22.2 points, was openly critical of Meadors’ game plan following a loss to Minnesota on Sunday. McCoughtry and Meadors both added that the fourth-year guard’s tired legs contributed to her not starting and playing only 20 minutes.

Allene said McCoughtry was not at Philips Arena when players reported and was not in the building for Tuesday’s game.
