Coleman scores 18 points, Lucas 17 as Indiana Fever tops Atlanta Dream 90-79


ATLANTA — Marissa Coleman scored 18 points and Maggie Lucas had 17 to lead Indiana to a 90-79 win over Atlanta on Tuesday.

Natalie Achonwa added 12 points and veteran Tamika Catchings had a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Fever (2-4). Achonwa finished 5 of 6 from the field.

Indiana shot 50 percent, including 9 of 19 from 3-point range.

Sancho Lyttle had 19 points and Angel McCoughtry added 15 for the Dream (2-4). Atlanta is playing without two players because of overseas commitments with international teams. That includes Tiffany Hayes, who averages 12.3 points.

Coleman and Lucas combined for 21 points in a second quarter, and the Fever led 49-35 at halftime.

Atlanta rallied within 10 points in the fourth quarter, but could get no closer.
