ATLANTA -- Crystal Langhorne had 30 points and 13 rebounds, Nicky Anosike added 29 points and 13 boards, and the Washington Mystics beat the Atlanta Dream 98-90 in overtime on Thursday night.

Matee Ajavon scored 24 points and Kelly Miller had 10 against for the Mystics (1-1), who were without Alana Beard (bruised foot) and rookie center Ta'Shia Phillips (ankle).

Erika DeSouza, who missed the final 2:44 of overtime with an apparent nose injury, led the Dream (0-2) with 20 points and a game-high 14 rebounds. Iziane Castro Marques scored 16 points, Armintie Price added 12, Lindsey Harding had 11 and Sancho Lyttle 10.

Angel McCoughtry returned from a knee injury for Atlanta, but played just 3 minutes, going 1-for-4 from the field for two points.

Langhorne's putback capped the Mystics' 8-0 run that gave them an 82-80 lead -- their first since late in the first quarter -- with 4:35 left in regulation.

Castro Marques' 16-footer put Atlanta ahead 85-82, but after Miller's 3-pointer tied it, Harding missed a wild runner that would've won the game at the regulation buzzer.

Miller's straightaway jumper gave the Mystics a two-point lead in overtime, and Washington never trailed in the final 5 minutes.

Shalee Lehning scored the Dream's only two baskets of overtime.

In a rematch of a WNBA first-round playoff series that Atlanta won 2-0 last season, the Mystics pulled within two points when Ajavon's made it 77-75 with 7:57 remaining in the fourth quarter.

The teams were playing for the first time since a draft-day deal sent Harding to the Dream in exchange for Miller and Phillips.

Kerri Gardin -- signed by the Mystics earlier in the day with Beard, Phillips and Monique Currie (out for the year) injured -- finished with three points, three rebounds, five rebounds and a game-high six steals in 21 minutes.
