ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - Sylvia Fowles scored 18 points to help the Chicago Sky beat the Atlanta Dream 85-68 on Saturday night and clinch home-court advantage through the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Elena Delle Donne added 15 and Tamera Young chipped in with 12 for Chicago (21-8), which will be the top seed in the East in the 8-year franchise's first postseason appearance. The Sky won its sixth straight to remain one game behind West-leading Minnesota for the league's best record.

Rookie Alex Bentley scored a career-high 19 points to lead Atlanta (14-13), which has dropped four straight after a 3-game winning streak. The Dream's lead over third-place Washington was cut to a half-game.

Angel McCoughtry, the league's leading scorer, didn't start for Atlanta due to an injured right ankle, but finished with 17 points.

Chicago led by one point at halftime before pulling away by outscoring Atlanta 30-11 in the third quarter.
