One loss for the Washington Mystics this weekend was excruciating. The second was never in doubt.

Katie Douglas scored 15 points and had five rebounds to lead the homestanding Indiana Fever over the Washington Mystics 83-51 on Sunday.

The day before, Epiphanny Prince made 2 of 3 free throws with 0.7 seconds remaining, and the Chicago Sky beat the Mystics 71-70 at Verizon Center in a game that featured 18 lead changes. Matee Ajavon led Washington with 23 points.

Jessica Davenport scored 14 points Sunday and had five rebounds, and Tamika Catchings scored 13 points with eight rebounds for the Fever, who lead the Eastern Conference by two games.

Crystal Langhorne scored 11 points and had seven rebounds and Jasmine Thomas scored 11 points for the Mystics (5-20), who extended their losing streak to five games.

The Fever, 4-0 this season against Washington, allowed a season-low point total of 51. The Mystics shot 35.2 percent and had 19 turnovers.

Indiana went on a 14-2 run to start the game and took a 79-47 lead at one point late in the fourth quarter.
