All-Star Catchings lifts Fever past Shock
Tamika Catchings scored nine of her 23 points in the fourth quarter, including the tiebreaking basket with 5.2 seconds remaining to lift the Indiana Fever past the Tulsa Shock 78-76 on Tuesday night.
Catchings, playing in just her second game this season after missing Indiana's first 17 contests due to a sore back, also had 11 rebounds and was announced as a starter for the Eastern Conference in the All-Star game later this month.
Shavonte Zellous had 18 points for the Fever (9-10).
Skylar Diggins, announced as a starter for the West, scored 23 points for Tulsa (7-12).
The Shock trailed by 15 points in the fourth quarter before tying the score on Courtney Paris' layup with 16.7 seconds to go.
That set up Catchings' winning basket as she caught a pass from Erlana Larkins and made a layup.
