Last updated on Monday, June 27, 2011

(MINNEAPOLIS, MN) - The Indiana Fever outlasted the Minnesota Lynx, 78-to-75.

The Lynx were up by six late in the fourth quarter when the fever responded with big plays from their most celebrated players.

Katie Douglas drained a three-pointer to narrow the gap to 67-64. Tamika Catchings tied the game on the very next possession with a three pointer of her own.

With just over a minute to play and the game tied at 73, Douglas made a running jumper to put Indiana ahead permanently. She finished with 22-points and Catchings had 17.

Indiana has won three in a row and now lead the Eastern Conference by one-game. They host Phoenix tomorrow.
