Fever Look To Win Eastern Conference Title This Evening

Last updated on Tuesday, September 27, 2011

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Fever and the Atlanta Dream square off in the third and final game of their WNBA Eastern Conference Finals series tonight at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Dream evened the best-of-three series on Sunday afternoon, defeating the Fever 94-77 in Atlanta.

The Fever have not released information on whether WNBA Most Valuable Player Tamika Catchings will play tonight.

Catchings was carried off the court in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss in Atlanta with an injury to her right foot.

Head Coach Lin Dunn spoke to the media during Monday's practice at Conseco Fieldhouse, saying she is not sure if Catchings would be able to play.

Dunn did say that the injury was not to Catchings' Achilles' tendon.

Catchings tore her right Achilles' during the 2007 playoffs and missed a portion of the 2008 season recovering from the injury.

Tonight's winner advances to the WNBA finals where they will take on the Western Conference Champion Minnesota Lynx.

The Lynx completed a sweep of the Phoenix Mercury with their game-two win on Sunday night.

The finals open Sunday night in Minneapolis.
