Indiana Fever vs. Tulsa Shock results

leave a comment »

Last night the Indiana Fever played against the Tulsa Shock in both of the team’s last game of the regular season, and the Fever won.

The game started off quickly as Tamika Catchings got the first points of the game for the Fever, but the Shock caught up and passes the Fever almost as quickly. The Fever were trailing by the end of the first 24-18. But as the game progressed in the second quarter the Fever caught up and took the lead back with a little over two minuets to spare with 33-30. The Fever hang onto the lead all the way till halftime 43-32.

After halftime the Fever controlled the ball for the rest of the game, all of the players stepped up and played their very best. Jeanette Pohlen played better than I have seen her play in awhile with 10 points, Erin Philips was another starter that did really well with a career high 21 points.  At the end of the of the third the Fever were still on top 71-43. For the rest of the game the Fever held onto the lead and won the game 91-58.

The starters for the Fever players were not the regular starters that they have had this season. Briann January and Shavonte Zellous have not played for the past three games due to concussion symptoms that they got in their last game against the Minnesota Lynx.  And Katie Douglas did not play because of an illness. We do not know yet if they are going to play during the playoffs.

The playoffs start this Friday for the Fever against the Atlanta Dream. The Fever are 22-12 while the Dream are 19-15. This is a rematch for the Fever after the Dream beat the Fever last year in the playoffs to go onto play against the Lynx. This should be a great playoff year for the Fever and if they play like they did last night, they have a great chance at going far in the playoffs.
