From Wednesday night....
Fever 83, Liberty 69. The home team Fever (6-4) outmuscled the visiting Liberty (5-5) on the boards, 38-28. Katie Douglas lead the Liberty with 16 points and 8 rebounds. It was the fourth time in a row that Indiana has beaten New York. Allison Feaster of the Fever scored her 354th three pointer, putting her seventh on the WNBA's all time list.
Mystics 67, Comets 63. The Comets found the visiting Mystics (4-7) poor sports as Washington went on an 10-0 run late in the fourth quarter to eclipse the hometown Comets (3-8). With under a minute left, Houston had cut the Mystics lead to just two points, but Hamchetou Maiga-Ba, Michelle Snow, and Tina Thompson all missed either shots or free throws and blew their chances at taking control of the game.
Mercury 102, Sun 81. The hometown Mercury (3-6) made 22 of 23 free throws and shot over 50 percent from the field to defeat the Sun (9-3), the WNBA's team with the most wins. Diana Taurasi of the Mercury scored 32 points as last year's WNBA champoins made it look easy. It was the Sun's second loss in three games.
Sparks 80, Sky 67. Four Sky (3-6) players scored in double figures...but five Sparks (8-2) players crossed into double digits, led by Lisa Leslie. Kiesha Brown failed to score a single point, but added nine rebounds to the Sparks's cause. The Sky were outrebounded 41-24 as the Sparks got their fourth straight win.
