INDIANAPOLIS, July 12 (AP) -- Katie Douglas scored 13 of her 25 points in the fourth quarter, and the Indiana Fever netted the final seven points in a 66-57 victory over the Chicago Sky on Saturday night.
Douglas scored all but 10 of the Fever's fourth-quarter points and made all 10 of her free throws to go along with 7-of-17 shooting from the field. Tan White, who scored eight points in the first quarter, was the other player in double figures with 10 for the Fever (10-9).
Candice Dupree, who made her first eight field goals, led the Sky with 19 points on 9-of-14 shooting. Jia Perkins, who sank just 4 of 16 shots, added 10 points for the Chicago (5-13), which lost its fourth straight.
After hitting their first nine shots, the Fever made just 15 of their final 54.
The fast-starting Fever built a 22-9 lead, but then went scoreless for six minutes. The Sky closed to 22-21 as DuPree scored eight points.
Despite making only four of its next 19 shots, Indiana led 32-27 at halftime.
