Conference finals set

Got heart medication?

Eastern Conference:

The Fever shook off a slow start to beat the Dream, 75-64 and advance to the Eastern Conference finals. Erlana Larkins lead Indiana with 16 points and 20 rebounds; Katie Douglas had 24 points; Tamika Catchings netted 16 points, 11 rebounds, four blocks and three steals in much less time, because she kept having to go to the bench and get her face taped up.

Catchings is one of, if not the toughest basketball players. No matter how many knocks she takes, she gets back up or comes back in and makes an immediate impact. She is relentless.

Lindsay Harding put up 17 points for the Dream and Angel McCoughtry, 16.

Box score.

Tamika Catchings was focused on that win tonight because she hasn’t yet hoisted the Championship trophy.

Up close and personal with Catchings.

Western Conference:

The Lynx barely pull away from the Storm, 73-72.
