Lindsey Harding has 10 points in three assists helping the Atlanta Dream to a 44-36 lead over the visiting Indiana Fever. Atlanta's defense has gotten stingy once again holding the Fever to just 31 percent shooting in the first half.
Angel McCoughtry has eight points, three rebounds and three steals for Atlanta in the first half before leaving late after picking up her third personal foul. McCoughtry was whistled for her third foul with Atlanta up 38-22. With her on the bench for the remainder of the half, Indiana closed the gap to as close as 42-36 with just over a minute to play.
Erika de Souza finished the half with seven points, seven rebounds, and three blocks while Allison Bales and Armintie Price each netted six.
Tamika Catchings leads Indiana with 11 points and four rebounds but Atlanta has made her work for every bucket. Catchings is just 3-12 from the field but made up for it by going 5-5 from the charity stripe. Erin Phillips joins Catchings in double figures with 10 points at the half.
