Indiana Fever vs. Minnesota Lynx

leave a comment »

Last night the Indiana Fever played against the Minnesota Lynx but sadly lost. Two players from the USA gold medal team were on the Lynx, Maya Moore, and Lindsay Whalen. And last night they reminded everyone why they were chosen.

The game started off rough for the Fever, the Lynx started off strong with getting 9 points until the Brian January scored. January played a big role for the Fever and did a good job gathering points. Tamika Catchings got 14 points but was heavily guarded. The Fever were behind by five points 25-20. But the Lynx pulled ahead even more by the half with the Fever still trailing 41-33.

In the second half the Fever did a better job at holding off the Lynx from scoring and stole the ball more. In the fourth quarter the Fever managed to tie the game (64-64) for the first time in the game with only :23 left. But the Lynx had the ball and Whalen had the ball, ran down the clock, and scored leaving only one second on the clock. Katie Douglas had the ball and threw it to Erlana Larkin who was under the basket, but could not make the shot. Lynx win 66-64.

The next Fever game is on Monday @ 8:00 pm in Minnesota for a rematch.
