Fever tie up WNBA series with Sun
INDIANAPOLIS — Shavonte Zellous’ jumper with 0.5 seconds remaining lifted the Indiana Fever over the Connecticut Sun 78-76 in Game 2 of the WNBA Eastern Conference Finals on Monday night to even the series.
The two teams will play the decisive third game on Thursday night in Connecticut.
The Sun’s Allison Hightower tied the game on a baseline runner with 12.5 seconds left. She was fouled on the play, but missed the free throw.
Tamika Catchings rebounded the miss and threw an outlet pass to Briann January who missed a layup. Zellous picked up the rebound and hit the game-winner from 13 feet.
Katie Douglas scored 24 points and Catchings had 21 points to lead the Fever.
Kara Lawson scored 18 points to lead the Sun.
The winner on Thursday will face Minnesota in the WNBA finals.
