Charlotte coach Trudi Lacey figures WNBA fans will do a double-take when they see the host Sting beat the Indiana Fever, 46-37, last night.
"People will look at this game and think it was a halftime score," Lacey said.
Charlotte Smith-Taylor scored 11 points to help Charlotte win the second-lowest-scoring game in WNBA history.
Indiana was 9 of 48 from the field, setting a league record for fewest field goals. Natalie Williams had 11 points and 11 rebounds for the Fever, while scoring star Tamika Catchings was 1 of 11 from the field and finished with 9 points. Miami and Washington played the lowest-scoring game in league history, Miami's 42-35 victory in 2001.
Silver Stars 80, Mercury 72 -- LaToya Thomas scored 14 points and Shannon Johnson added 13 to lead San Antonio to an overtime victory over host Phoenix. Penny Taylor had a season-high 25 points for the Mercury, and former UConn standout Diana Taurasi added 17.
The Silver Stars won their second straight game.
Liberty 67, Storm 62 -- Becky Hammon scored 15 points to help New York snap a six-game losing streak and defeat host Seattle. Elena Baranova added 13 points for the Liberty, who gave coach Richie Adubato his 100th WNBA victory.
