Douglas helps Fever beat Storm 72-48
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Katie Douglas scored 16 points and the Indiana Fever forced a franchise-record 28 turnovers in a 72-48 victory over the Seattle Storm on Wednesday night.
Tamika Catchings added 13 points, seven rebounds and a season-high six steals for the Fever (20-9), who have won eight of nine. The Fever are 10-2 since the Olympic break and remain in contention for the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Svetlana Abrosimova had 11 points and eight rebounds for the Storm (13-16).
Seattle played without its starting backcourt. Point guard Sue Bird, the Storm's leading scorer, rested and Tanisha Wright did not play because of a groin strain.
Seattle center Lauren Jackson finished with four points on 2-for-10 shooting and committed seven turnovers.
