From combined dispatches

Fever 66, Sky 57

INDIANAPOLIS | Katie Douglas scored 13 of her 25 points in the fourth quarter, and Indiana netted the final seven points in a victory over Chicago on Saturday night.

Douglas scored all but 10 of the Fever’s fourth-quarter points and made all 10 of her free throws to go along with 7-for-17 shooting from the field. Tan White, who scored eight points in the first quarter, was the other player in double figures with 10 for the Fever.

“All of us made more of a conscious effort to get to the rim,” Douglas said. “We got off to a phenomenal start, but in the second half, things were not going down as well. Rather that sit in and try to get comfortable, we decided to attack the basket.”

Candice DuPree, who made her first eight field goals, led the Sky with 19 points on 9-for-14 shooting. Jia Perkins, who sank just four of 16 shots, added 10 points for the Sky, who lost their fourth straight.

Liberty 74, Shock 64

NEW YORK | Shameka Christon scored 19 points, Loree Moore and Janel McCarville added 13 each and New York beat first-place Detroit.

Cathrine Kraayeveld scored 10 points and McCarville and Tiffany Jackson had seven rebounds each for New York, which came back from 18 points down midway through the third quarter to win its fourth straight at home.

Katie Smith and Plenette Pierson scored 13 points each, Cheryl Ford had 11 points and 12 rebounds, and rookie Tasha Humphrey also had 11 points for Detroit. The Shock, a perfect 9-0 at home, have lost four straight on the road.

Lynx 85, Comets 71

MINNEAPOLIS | Seimone Augustus scored 27 points and Anna DeForge added 17 as Minnesota beat Houston.

DeForge was 5-for-10 from 3-point range for the Lynx, who shot 10-for-20 from beyond the arc. Nicky Anosike had her second career double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds for Minnesota, which had lost two in a row and four of five. Candice Wiggins added 10 points in a reserve role.
