Jurgita Streimikyte capped the run on a jumper at 11:02 remaining, giving the Fever a 51-41 lead.

After a timeout, Catchings was fouled and made 1-of-2 free throws for a 60-58 lead with 15 seconds left.

Holding for the final shot, the Mystics Temeka Johnson got into the lane as time ran down, but her layup attempt with three seconds remaining was off the mark.
