    Lightbulb Indiana Fever 2010 Regular Season Thread

    Thought it might be nice to have one big regular season thread for the Feverwhere we can post about whatever games, players, or trends interest us.

    Fever defeat NY Liberty 78-73


    This was a good game, Zellous was excellent on both sides of the floor, Catch had an elite all-around game, low turnovers, and Katie Douglas was out there shooting 3's well beyond the NBA line. We've outscored our last two opponents 60-34 in the paint.

    Little worried about the injury to Tully. Hope it doesn't keep her out more than a game or two.

    http://www.wnba.com/fever/news/100605game.html

    by Tom Rietmann | June 5, 2010
    It was a fiercely contested and physical game – perfect, in other words, for the unflinching style of Shavonte Zellous.


    Zellous, Indiana's newest player, turned in a second half to be remembered Saturday night as she led the Fever to a 78-73 victory over the New York Liberty at Conseco Fieldhouse. She led the Fever in scoring as well as tough-mindedness, especially in the second half. Nineteen of her game-high 23 points came after halftime, including nine of Indiana's first 10 in the fourth quarter, as the Fever pulled away from a stubborn New York team.


    “I like some aggression,” said Zellous, acquired three games ago from Tulsa for a 2011 second-round draft pick. “I enjoyed this game.”


    And Fever coach Lin Dunn enjoyed having Zellous on hand to help the Fever move to 4-3 ahead of Sunday's game at Minnesota.


    “I guess you can see why we're excited to get Shavonte Zellous,” Dunn said. “She stepped up big for us off the bench. I thought she did a really good job defending, too.”


    Zellous, a second-year player from Pittsburgh who can substitute at both guard positions and small forward, hit 10-of-12 free throws, including six in the fourth quarter. Her slashing, driving style gets her to the line often. She has connected on 18-of-21 free throws since joining the Fever.


    “As the days go by, I'm getting more comfortable with everything,” said Zellous, whose 23 points were the fourth-highest total ever for a Fever player off the bench. “With the team, the schemes, everything, I'm just feeling more at home.”


    New York (2-4) sliced Indiana's lead to 74-70 when Cappie Poindexter hit a 3-pointer with 23.7 seconds left.


    But then Zellous, after taking an inadvertent elbow in the face, extended the lead to six with a pair of free throws. Ebony Hoffman added two more free throws after New York made it 76-73 with 13.1 seconds left.


    Counting the playoffs, it was Indiana's 15th straight home victory in the series against New York.
    “I thought we showed a lot of poise and toughness,” Dunn said. “You knew they were going to make a run. They're too talented. We were relentless in our desire not to lose.”


    While Zellous controlled the second half for Indiana, Katie Douglas led the Fever in the first 20 minutes. She hit 4-of-6 three pointers before halftime and ended with a 5-of-9 mark from the arc and 19 points. Douglas has hit 11-of-19 treys in the last three games after a slow start.


    “I've just gotten into a little of a rhythm,” Douglas said. “It feels good. Teammates are doing a great job of finding me, and I'm trying to find the soft spots and get them in.”


    However, it was a fast-break layup by Douglas that brought a crowd of 8,090 to its feet in the third quarter.



    With 7 minutes left, Tamika Catchings dribbled full-speed toward the basket when she saw Douglas trailing her. Catchings flipped a no-look pass and Douglas scooped it in.


    “I saw Katie coming out of the corner of my eye,” said Catchings, who had a game-high nine assists to go with 14 points and seven rebounds. “She was wide open and I got her the ball.”


    Douglas and Catchings played for the same team in Turkey this past winter, a time they used to enhance their compatibility on the floor.


    “I think that just goes back to us being in sync,” Douglas said. “She had a tremendous game with assists. We just kind of made eye contact on that play, and it worked from there. We played all offseason together and I think we have a connection. It definitely was an awesome look.”


    In the final minute of the game, Fever point guard Tully Bevilaqua limped to the bench. With starter Briann January already out with a sprained knee, the Fever are in danger of being without a true point guard. Douglas, normally a shooting guard, has been seeing a lot of action at the point because of January's injury.


    “I hope it's a minor sprain; (it's) some kind of foot sprain,” Dunn said Bevilaqua's injury. “The good news is, you're seeing that Zellous is also helping us some there (at point guard). We're giving her as many minutes as we can so we have another combo guard.”


    FEVER TIDBITS

    -- January, who has missed three games with her knee injury, continues to improve, Dunn said. January could possibly return by next weekend's two games against Connecticut.

    Jessica Davenport is a beast. The one bright spot when everyone else shot poorly, she had her way with Connecticut tonight. Unfortunately, our defense was also terrible, especially in the 4th, so her great night came in a loss.

    It was also good to see Bri at least get back into things after the injury. You could tell she was a little rusty and tentative, but I think that's to be expected as she tests out that knee.

    Overall, not a good game for the Fever tonight, but should be a different game when these teams meet again on Sunday. Those shots should drop, adjustments will be made to the defense, and hopefully we can pull out a win.

    tough game, but Connecticut has some good players, too. Tina Charles is a beast in the WNBA and Renee Montgomery is a crazy good PG. I think we'll get the next game against them, though. Great job to Jessica Davenport, though, as she just couldn't miss!

    Watching today's Sun - Fever game. The Fever were in trouble, they lost a 20 pt lead but Catch put them on her back in the 4th quarter - 12 pts, 8 rebounds in the quarter. There was a sequence where she had a monster block, rebounded the ball and took it down to the other end and got fouled. 18 pts, 13 reb, 4 steals for the game. I hope those of you who live in Indy are going out to see this woman play. Catch alone is worth the price of admission. I think she's already got another Defensive Player of the Year nod locked up (too bad that seems to keep her from winning MVP).

    Tonight was one of the few times I've ever seen Tamika give an official a serious stare down after a bad call, it was hilarious.

    I need to go look at a box score, but Catch was also responsible for a number of really horrible turnovers on bad passes. I don't know how many turnovers there actually were, but I was thinking that she could have a triple double on pts, rebs, and turnovers...

    Bill,

    You're absolutely right about that one. She had 5 turnovers and most of them were of the WTF variety. All was forgiven (for me, at least) after that 4th quarter performance. We lose without Catch turning up the defensive intensity and making it her personal responsibility to score.

    Also, props to Tammy Sutton-Brown (who I'd taken to calling Charmin-Brown for her soft play last year) - she played good, physical (!) defense on Tina Charles. Charles came in averaging 15.9 and she had 2 points last night.

    Just read in an article about WNBA dads (http://sports.yahoo.com/wnba/news?slug=ap-wnbadads) that Catch is "poised to become the first WNBA player with 4,500 points, 2,000 rebounds and 1,000 assists."

    Best WNBA player to never win an MVP?

    Back to back wins over the leagues top two teams (Seattle, Atlanta): http://www.wnba.com/fever/news/100619game.html

    Sutton-Brown Makes History, Fever Drops Dream

    By Tom Rietmann

    Two victories over WNBA leaders in a three-day stretch gave the surging Indiana Fever a reason to feel a sense of attainment. But if that was the players' reaction Saturday night after a 94-91 squeaker over Atlanta, they did a nice job of concealing it.

    “We don't really have the time or energy to celebrate,” guard Katie Douglas, who collected 17 points and five assists, said as she iced her aching knees. “We did what we were supposed to do. We took care of our home court.”

    The Fever grabbed a 17-point first-half lead over the Dream and then held off the Eastern Conference leaders in the final 10.4 seconds with three key free throws and a timely defensive play by Tamika Catchings. The victory, coming on the heels of an important win over West-leading Seattle on Thursday, boosted Indiana's record to 8-4, a half-game behind the Dream.

    But Indiana, which has won six straight home games, will now say goodbye to Conseco Fieldhouse until July 8. The Fever plays four straight games on the road, starting next Friday at Seattle.

    “Sure, it was a good week for us,” said Indiana center Tammy Sutton-Brown, whose season-high 16 points put her over the 3,000 mark and made her the fifth player in WNBA history with 3,000 points, 1,500 rebounds and 400 blocks. “We can celebrate tonight -- enjoy it and have some fun and have dinner. But then, it's back to work on Monday.”

    The Fever took a 42-25 lead over Atlanta midway through the second quarter. Indiana's reserves did the damage, building a 19-8 run. Jessica Davenport totaled 10 points on the night, and Briann January added nine.
    “Once again our bench showed why they're the best bench in the league.” said Catchings, who had 17 points, seven rebounds, six assists and four steals.

    None of Catchings' steals was bigger than one with 10.4 seconds left in the game. Atlanta, shooting 60 percent (9-of-15), outscored Indiana 28-19 in the third quarter. The Dream kept the heat turned up in the fourth, too, and had the deficit at only two, 91-89, in the final minute. But after Atlanta attempted to set up a play during a timeout with 21.2 seconds left, Catchings jumped in the lane and intercepted a pass by Iziane Castro Marques.

    “I saw it develop because we got burned like five times during the game,” Catchings said. “I knew whoever was driving in didn't really want to shoot it. They wanted to pass to the post underneath.”

    Catchings strategy? “Stay low, sneak in and get it.” she said.

    Two free throws by Douglas and one by Ebony Hoffman were sandwiched around a pair by Castro Marques, making the score 94-91 with 7.1 seconds left. Atlanta's Shalee Lehning failed to connect on a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

    “We knew when we got ahead at half (55-41) that we were still going to get a great shot back from Atlanta,” Fever coach Lin Dunn said. “They're so talented and good. They came out like gangbusters in the second half.”

    Hoffman, who had 12 points and five rebounds, echoed her coach's words.

    “Atlanta has a great team,” said Hoffman, whose 3-pointer to beat the shot clock with 3:45 left gave Indiana some breathing room at 84-79. “They're fast, athletic, big and strong. You're not going to stop them all the time. You just hope you do the right thing at the right time. In the second half, they started getting shots. I think we held our composure and stayed with it to get the 'W.' ”

    Indiana's 93 points represented a season high. The Fever needed the offensive output to ward off an Atlanta team that hit 53.6 percent (30-of-56) from the field.

    Indiana forced 23 turnovers by the Dream, which led to 35 Fever points.

    Indiana has won eight of its last 10 games, but Dunn sees plenty of room for improvement.

    “We certainly haven't peaked,” the coach said. “We're not playing A-plus basketball all the time. We still have a lot of room to grow. I think that's a good sign. We're not where we need to be and we're still winning.”

    FEVER TIDBITS
    -- Atlanta received a big night from Sancho Lyttle, who totaled 20 points and 20 rebounds. Angel McCoughtry and Castro Marques each scored 21. Lyttle's 20 rebounds were the most ever against the Fever, and a Conseco Fieldhouse record by a WNBA player.

    -- Coach Lin Dunn on Sutton-Brown's statistical accomplishments during her nine years in the WNBA: “Not only has she done a great job defensively, now she's in a very elite club. It doesn't surprise me a bit.”

    -- Dunn said a key factor in the game was Indiana's refusal to give up the lead, even when Atlanta was playing its best in the second half.

    Katie Douglas just straight DOMINATED the three-point contest. She had 24 (out of 30) and the others had like 12 at most. What a beast. Her follow through is perfection.

    I wasn't able to watch any of the All-Star stuff today - do you know why Catch played so few minutes? She didn't get hurt, did she?

    Fever Hot Heading into All-Star Break
    by Cliff Brunt, AP Sports Writer

    The Indiana Fever are on a roll and looking like a team that could return to the WNBA finals.

    Indiana (11-6) heads into the All-Star break having won six of its past eight games, but is just third in the Eastern Conference behind Atlanta and Washington. Fourth-place Connecticut is 10-8 in the six-team conference.


    Things aren’t so balanced out West. Seattle leads the way with a 16-2 record, but no one else has more than seven wins.


    New York, the East’s last-place team, would be in second place in the West.

    “Normally, it’s the West that’s like that, and everybody is fighting for the top,” Indiana All-Star forward Tamika Catchings said. “This year, it’s kind of like the flip-flop. The East is the conference to beat and everything is really close. The level of play each team plays with is a lot higher.”


    Indiana enters the break coming off a 100-72 win over the Tulsa Shock on Thursday. It was the second-highest point total in team history, and the 35-point second quarter was a team record. The bench scored a team-record 50 points.


    “This was a great way to finish the first half of the season,” Fever coach Lin Dunn said. “It’s good to see the bench play so well. Everyone stepped up and hit big shots.”


    The Fever lost three of their first five games this season while Catchings, fellow All-Star Katie Douglas and starters Ebony Hoffman and Tammy Sutton-Brown adjusted to missing training camp after a late return from playing in Turkey.


    One of those losses in May was a 79-74 defeat at Tulsa, a game the Fever led heading into the fourth quarter. This week’s game “was a payback,” Catchings said.
    “There was no comparison when you look at the two games,” she said. “We did a better job moving the ball. We finished them off rather than letting them come back.”


    The Fever are two games behind Atlanta, something Douglas doesn’t mind—for now.


    “I’m happy we are where we are,” Douglas said. “It could be worse. There may be some mixed emotions because we would have liked to have started a little better, but we had some situations with us coming back. I’m proud of the way we’ve continued to fight back and put ourselves in position at the halfway point. We’re still in contention of winning the Eastern Conference and that’s what matters.”


    Catchings and Douglas have done their share to help the Fever remain a contender.


    Catchings is ninth in the league in averaging 16.2 points and leads the league with 2.7 steals. She also averages 6.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists. Douglas opened the season in a shooting slump, but has rebounded. She is averaging 13.9 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists.


    The Fever have remained a strong defensive team, a key to their run of five straight playoff appearances. Indiana allows a league-low 70.2 points.


    The Fever’s only two losses in their past eight games were by four at league-leading Seattle and by three at Washington. Indiana is one of two teams with a win over Seattle this season, a 72-65 victory June 17 in Indianapolis.


    “I think we’re definitely getting better and better,” Catchings said. “I’m not satisfied. When you look at the games we lost, we should have won three for sure and possibly all of them. From that standpoint, I’m not satisfied, but when you look at where we came from in the beginning to where we’re about to go, I’m expecting big things.”


    Douglas doesn’t expect an easy path.


    “I think the East is extremely wide open,” she said. “It’s extremely competitive this year. It’s anybody’s ball game right now. We’re going to take this break and start to get in our playoff mentality and get things rolling.”

    No, she looked good in her limited minutes in the first quarter. Classic Catch really; 4 ast, 3 points, an assist and a steal in only 5 min. I think Geno just wanted to rest her "old" bones and not risk it. Plus, the first unit (mainly Bird, Taurasi, Catch) know each other so well already. The rest of the young girls on the roster need a lot more time playing together to build that chemistry that the girls from the previous national teams have developed.

    Hmmm. Apparently there is an injury of some sort. She didn't play in the scrimmage against Australia:

    "Tamika Catchings was a surprise (to me at least) scratch, with knee problems. It doesn't keep her from playing Fever games, but she's scaled back practice time."

    Hopefully it's not a huge deal and she's just being cautious and loyal to the Fever, but there you have it.

    Oh, wow. Thanks for the link. Catch is a warrior. I watched the game against Connecticut today and she was all over the floor, still diving for loose balls and throwing her body into defenders. I respect the heck out of this woman.

    Went to the game last night (my first Fever game ever) with the lady and her parents and actually had a really good time. Big win for the Fever as well.
    Was just about to queue that one up on Live Access. Nice to get such a big win against a top team after that Connecticut stinker. If everyone on that team rebounded like Catch does we'd be rolling every night.

    Watching the IN-NY game - tied up at 73, Fever possession with 8.4 seconds to go. Washington just lost so a win puts the Fever in 1st place out in the East.

    Sutton-Brown misses two point blank shots but we survive that and a 40 point game from Cappie. 84-81, Indiana Fever.

    First place in the East where we belong! Fourth place Sun only one game behind though - the East is so tough this year.

    Unbelievable game. Cappie had a night for the record books but our one-two punch of Catch and Douglas was too much for NY.

    Sutton-Brown drives me crazy by how soft she is around the rim on offense. I would have liked to see her pull it out and kill some time on that second attempted layup.

    We're so unbelievably lucky to be able to watch a player like Catch every night. You just can't measure all of the things that she does for this franchise, no bum knee is going to hold her back.

    I'm so glad the Fever squeaked it out. Take took my ESPN streak 16!

    Took over first place in the East as well as stated above

    I started calling her Charmin-Brown during the playoffs last year. How good would we be if our starting center had just average toughness? I must admit she has improved her post defense this year though. If only she could figure out she has to man up in the same way under the rim on offense.

    haha yes, I remember! It actually caught on with me and I call her that now too, all because of you. It's so true though. I think that's why I get so excited when Davenport gets it going off the bench, because she brings that presence we need from our center.
