Catchings' 23 points leads Fever past Shock 71-60
Tamika Catchings had 23 points for Indiana and moved into fourth place in the WNBA's all-time scoring list while leading the Fever past the Tulsa Shock 71-60 on Thursday afternoon.
Shavonte Zellous had 19 points against her former team, and Karima Christmas added 11 for the defending WNBA champion Fever (8-9).
Catchings moved past Seattle's Lauren Jackson on the all-time list with 6,024 career points. The 13-year veteran also had a game-high nine rebounds.
Liz Cambage led the Shock (6-14) with 13 points. Tulsa's lone All-Star Game selection, Glory Johnson, was bothered by foul trouble and finished with 11 points.
The win was the seventh in the last nine games for Indiana and marked the third consecutive season the Fever swept the regular-season series against the Shock.
Tulsa, which had its three-game winning streak snapped, trailed 38-34 at halftime.
