Lethargic Start Stalls Fever

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) – The Indiana Fever couldn’t match up with the size of the Mercury’s roster as Phoenix earned a 94-87 win on Sunday.

Brittney Griner led the Mercury with 26 points while DeWanna Bonner added 25 points and a game-high seven rebounds.

The Fever got off to a lethargic start, scoring on 12 points in the first quarter and 16 in the second. A 33-point fourth quarter made the game interesting but the deficit was too great to make up.

Kelsey Mitchell led Indiana with 26 points and six assists while Kennedy Burke added 18 points.

The loss knocked the Fever to 3-2 on the season and they’ll host the Seattle Storm on Tuesday.
