INDIANAPOLIS—Erin Phillips scored 14 points, and Tamika Catchings did a little of everything else as the Indiana Fever defeated the Washington Mystics 68-57 on Saturday night for their sixth straight win.

Catchings had 10 points, seven rebounds, six steals, four assists and three blocks for the Fever (9-3), who have the best record in the league.

Catchings had five steals in the fourth quarter, and the Fever held Washington to seven points in the final period. The Mystics went scoreless for the final 4:53 as Indiana closed the game on a 9-0 run.

Nicky Anosike scored 12 points and Marissa Coleman added 11 for the Mystics (2-8). Washington's Crystal Langhorne, the league's No. 5 scorer with 18.1 points per game, sat out because of back pain.
