Indiana Fever continue losing streak in loss to Connecticut Sun

INDIANAPOLIS — Victoria Vivians went to Washington D.C. during the Indiana Fever’s six-day break between games. Kelsey Mitchell was in Chattanooga, Tenn. NaLyssa Smith wasn’t an all-star but was in Chicago for the WNBA skills challenge.

Interim coach Carlos Knox, who went to Chicago to support Smith, said before the game his team looked fresh in practice and the break was much needed entering the final 12 games of the season. 

Indiana even trotted out a different starting lineup than usual Wednesday, with Tiffany Mitchell taking Danielle Robinson’s spot in the backcourt.

 The result were the same as its been throughout the Fever’s now-seven-game losing streak: an uncompetitive loss — this one 89-81 to Connecticut. The Fever trailed by double digits throughout almost the entire game and made the final score respectable by outscoring the Sun 35-24 in the fourth quarter.
