leave a comment »

Last night the Indiana Fever played against the Atlanta Dream in game 3 of round 1 in the playoffs. This was a very important game for the Fever, as it was win or go home. And the Fever really played their best.

The game started off in favor of the Fever as Briann January got the first points and drew a foul in the first play of the game. The Fever did an amazing job at keeping the ball away from the Dream, and getting rebounds. Really just better defense all around.

Katie Douglas got her game back with 24 points, after only scoring three points in the last game. The Fever led at the end of the first 25-17. But the Dream start to catch up in the second half and the game is close, the score bounces back and forth between the two teams and Angel McCoughtry threw a last second 3-pointer to tie the game at half time 39-39.

In the start of the third quarter the Fever found themselves having to play harder as the Dream played tougher, the Fever struggled with their rebounds, and the Dream started to make a comeback. Erlana Larkins led the Fever with 20 rebounds and was an essential part of the team last night. The Fever led the game 54-51 at the end of the third.

In the fourth quarter, the Fever played together as a team, the fans got more excited with every Fever basket, and they cheered every time the Dream got a foul. The crowd was a big factor in the win, because the emotions were high, and you could feel the energy in the building. The Dream lost their momentum, and the Fever won, 75 – 64.

The Fever will now go on to play against the Connecticut Sun who beat the New York Liberty. Game 1 of the conference finals are on Friday October 5th in Connecticut. Game 2 will be in Indiana on October 8th. The Fever have really gotten their game together and are ready for their next opponents, the Fever will do very well if they keep playing like they have their last two games. And all of Indiana is cheering for them as the continue on their journey to the WNBA championship.

As for the rest of the games:

  • The Minnesota Lynx beat the Seattle Storm in last night’s tie-breaker, winning 73-72, and will play the L.A. Sparks in the Western Conference finals.
  • Games for the Western Conference will start on Thursday.
