Catchings rallies Fever to game 3; shocking ending to Western finals series

Insane day.

First, in the Eastern Conference finals:

The incomparable Tamika Catchings rallied the Fever from 18 down to beat the Liberty, 70-64, and force a game three of the series.

Catchings video.

Then after that, a shocking ending to the Western Conference finals series:

The Lynx edged the Mercury, 72-71, on a controversial last-second call on Phoenix forward Noelle Quinn.

I have to disagree with the call too. The game should have gone into overtime.

Fever and Liberty will duke it out at 4 p.m. Pacific/7 p.m. Eastern Tuesday at Madison Square Garden. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.


Coach Bill Laimbeer is enjoying the ride.
