ATLANTA (AP) Tamika Catchings had 25 points and 13 rebounds, Brian January scored 24 points and the Indiana Fever beat the Atlanta Dream 103-88 in Game 2 on Sunday to even their Eastern Conference semifinals series.

Erlana Larkins had 16 points, Shavonte Zellous added 15, Tammy Sutton-Brown 11 and Erin Phillips 10 for the Fever, who shot 53 percent from the field. January scored 11 points in the third quarter to help Indiana extend a two-point halftime lead and Catchings had 18 in the fourth - one short of the WNBA record for a quarter.
