Seattle Storm bury Indiana Fever with late-game surge - Jul 25, 2018

Sue Bird
Fans had Bankers Life Fieldhouse rocking. On their feet, screaming and hollering, they had just watched the Indiana Fever claw back from a 21-point deficit to get within eight with 2 minutes left. Rookie star Kelsey Mitchell (5'8''-G-95, college: Ohio St.)'s three-point play appeared to have the Seattle Storm on their heels. But then the Storm's Sue Bird (5'9''-PG-80, college: Connecticut) nailed a 3-point dagger as only a 15-year vet who owns the league record for games played could. That started a 12-0 run during which the Fever missed four shots and committed a turnover. An 80-72 game ended as a 92-72 loss for the Fever. 'We didn't finish, we fizzled, and that's extremely disappointing in terms of where we are and what we need to do,' said Fever coach Pokey Chatman . 'I'm not talking about moral victories. I'm just talking about being responsible and finishing things at a higher level. We didn't, and we can't do that against any team in this league, let alone a team that's in first.' The WNBA-leading Storm improved to 19-7 while the last-place Fever dropped to 3-23 in both teams' last game before the All-Star break. Seattle's Breanna Stewart (6'4''-F-94, college: Connecticut) finished with a double-double, 26 points and 10 rebounds, and three teammates joined her in scoring double figures. Kelsey Mitchell finished with 26 points, too, but with a sprained ankle ending teammate Victoria Vivians (6'1''-G-94, college: Mississippi St.)' night early, the Fever struggled to space the floor and consistently threaten offensively. Indiana forward Candice Dupree (6'2''-F/C-84, college: Temple, agency: ProDep Management), who finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds, thought the Fever gave up in the final stretch after Bird's 3-pointer. 'We've got to be better,' Dupree said. 'Can't relax at the end … can't let that happen.' All game long the Fever were able to withstand impressive runs from the Storm and respond with surges. While the Storm pulled away at times and finished shooting better than 50 percent from the field and better than 40 percent from 3 -- compared to below 30 percent shooting from 3 and less than 35 percent shooting from the field for the Fever -- somehow Mitchell, Dupree or another Indiana player would shift momentum. Chatman said Mitchell's ability to keep the Fever in the game speaks volumes to her value. 'She's beginning to see the game and read it. It's slowing down in her mind even though it's a little bit faster,' Chatman said. 'When you haven't had a lot of success in the win column, it's difficult to keep people up, so that's a testament to her character.' Dupree said the Fever need to put together a complete, four-quarter performance. It's that type of effort Storm head coach Dan Hughes cited as the reason his squad pulled out the road victory. 'You have to give Indiana credit," Hughes said. "I thought that we could not separate from them. The score is really not indicative of how it went." No Indiana Fever players were selected for the All-Star game, but Mitchell will participate in the 3-point shooting contest.
