INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Cappie Pondexter scored 22 points, and the Phoenix Mercury beat the Indiana Fever 90-77 in Game 4 of the WNBA
finals on Wednesday night to avoid elimination.
Penny Taylor added 17 points for the Mercury while Diana Taurasi and Tangela Smith each added 16 to even the series 2-2 and force Game 5 Friday in Phoenix.
Tamika Catchings led Indiana with 24 points and 12 rebounds and Ebony Hoffman added 17 points. All-Star Katie Douglas, who was
hoping to celebrate a clinching win in her hometown, scored seven points on 2-for-14 shooting.
The Fever had the homecourt, an active sellout crowd and local celebrities such as Indianapolis Colts players Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne in attendance. It wasn't enough.
