Tamika Catchings had 18 points, nine rebounds and six assists to lead the Indiana Fever to an 88-86 overtime win over the Chicago Sky on Saturday night.
Catchings, who is set for her third Olympics later this month, became the first player in WNBA history to score 1,500 career free throws on 6 of 8 free throw shooting.
Jessica Davenport scored 15 points and Shavonte Zellous scored 14 points for the Fever (9-6).
Sylvia Fowles had 24 points and 16 rebounds and Shay Murphy scored 20 points for the Sky (8-7), who have lost six of seven.
Davenport scored the go-ahead basket with 2:41 left in overtime and was fouled on the shot. She missed the free throw, but Zellous grabbed the rebound and Davenport scored to give the Fever an 83-80 lead.
