leave a comment »

Last night the Indiana Fever played against the Connecticut Sun in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. This game was a win or go home game for the Fever.

The Sun opened up the game with a 3-pointer and took the lead quickly, and things were starting to look bad for the Fever as they had yet to score. When the Fever finally did score the Sun were up by 11-2. But the Fever still had trouble with their scoring. Jessica Davenport played in last night’s game as well. Davenport did not played in the past 4 games of the playoffs. After awhile the Fever finally found their rhythm and started to catch up, and the first quarter ended with the Sun in the lead 24-20. But Briann January had gotten three fouls in the first quarter and was unable to play in the second quarter.

In the second quarter the Fever were doing much better with their rebounds and their second chances. Tamika Catchings had played so much better in this game than she had in the past couple of games. The Fever took the lead for the first time in the game with 1:35 left in the half. And the Fever still led at the end of the half 46-43.

During the whole third quarter both teams were only separated by a couple points. Both teams had a hard time of putting distance between them and the other team, but the Sun led by 1 point at the end of the third 57-56.

In the fourth quarter the Fever managed to pull way from the Sun 61-57. This is the longest lead the Fever have had in the entire game. But soon the game goes back to a one point game. With :25 left in the game, the game was tied 76-76 and Allison Hightower was at the free throw line after getting fouled, but Hightower missed the free throw and Catchings got the rebound. With a toss to January the game looked like it was already over but January misses the basket. She scrambles back in bounds and hits the ball to Shavonte Zellous. With :5 left on the clock Zellous shot the ball, and the ball makes it in with only 0.5 seconds left in the game, the Sun didn’t have enough time to even make it down the court and the Fever win 78-76.

Game 3 of the Eastern Conference will be Thursday October 11th in Connecticut @ 8:30. This game will determine who will go onto play the Minnesota Lynx in the WNBA Finals, which start on Sunday October 14th in Minnesota. Game 3 will be the game to watch as both teams are fighting to keep their season alive and for a spot in the Finals.
