Fever Host Mercury In Game Four

Last updated on Tuesday, October 6, 2009

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Fever can close out the WNBA Finals at home Wednesday night when they host the Phoenix Mercury in game four of the best-of-five series.

The Fever took a two-games-to-one lead with their 86-85 victory on Sunday evening at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Fever have received a huge boost in the first three games by the play of forward Ebony Hoffman.

Hoffman leads the finals in scoring at more than 20 points per game and has hit almost 71 percent of her shots from the field during the series.

Hoffman also made the key plays in game three, scoring the go-ahead basket with 57 seconds left and blocking Tangela Smith's last-second jumper to clinch the win.

If the Mercury can extend the series with a win tomorrow night, game five would be played Friday night in Phoenix.
