Fever vs Dream Game 2

leave a comment »

Yesterday the Indiana Fever played against the Atlanta Dream in game 2 of round 1 of the playoffs, this game was vital to the Fever in order to stay in the playoffs as the Dream led 1-0.

Katie Douglas opens up the game with a 3-pointer but that was the only points Douglas got for the entire game. But the Dream quickly pulled ahead, and it was starting to look like game 1 for the Fever. But the Fever got the lead back with one minute left in the first quarter 19-18, but the Fever trailed at the end of the first quarter 24-22 with a last second shot from Ketia Swanier that resulted in a 3-pointer for the Dream.

Throughout the start of the second quarter the game went back and forth between the two teams, this continued for awhile until the Fever finally pulled ahead 32-28 with six minuets to go. The star players for this game were not Douglas and Catchings this time as Douglas missed 3 free throws in a row, and Catchings started out 0-7 in baskets. the Fever lead by two points at the end of the half 47-45.

When the Fever came back out after the break they really played like they were in the playoffs, they got more rebounds and played better defense then in their last game. Catchings finally got herself some points and the Fever lead at the end of the third 78-65. After that they Fever stayed on top and kept the Dream from scoring and we kept scoring. And the Fever win 103-88.  Tamika Catchings got 25 points, and January got 24 points.

This was a huge win for Indiana, we have made it to the finals so many times and have not yet won a championship, this game helped keep out hopes alive for a chance at going further and winning the championship. The next game determines who wins the East semifinals, it will be in Indiana tomorrow at 7:00.  The Fever have to play like they did yesterday in order for them to win.

Result of the playoffs so far:

  • The L.A. Sparks beat the San Antonio Silver Stars and go onto play in the West Finals.
  • Game 3 between the Minnesota Lynx  and the Seattle Storm is also tomorrow night. Whoever wins this game will go on to play against the Sparks in the Finals.
  • The Connecticut Sun beat the New York Liberty and will go onto the East Finals. Whoever wins the Indiana Fever vs Atlanta Dream game will go onto play the Sun in the East Finals.
