Indiana Fever vs Phoenix Mercury

leave a comment »

Last night the Indiana Fever played against the Phoenix Mercury, and won 89-81.

The game started off kind of rough with three, 3 pointers in a row for the Mercury. But finally Tamika Catchings shot her own 3 pointer for the Fever. After that the Fever got their momentum and started to gain on the Mercury, and with only a couple second left in the first quarter the Fever got the lead for the first time and the first quarter ended with the Fever on top 27-26. And after that the Fever keep the lead, throughout the game the Fever made remarkable passes that were so fast they were almost hard to keep up with, but they did their job and the Fever lead at the half 54-41

In the third quarter the Fever got many cool looking shots, but I have to give praise to the Mercury for getting many 3 pointers, as it does seem like those are their speciality. But anyhow the Fever kept their lead at the end of the third quarter 74-61. One thing that they Fever have inproved on is their rebounding. Catching had five rebounds last night and the girls really worked for that ball. They gave it their best effort and it paid off with a win 89-81.

Also congraulations to Katie Douglas for getting reaching 5000 career points last night. She got a season high of 30 points last night and did extremely well and didn’t disappoint.
