Christmas scores 14 as Fever beat Sky 83-75

Posted: Updated:
ROSEMONT, Ill. (Associated Press) - Karima Christmas scored 14 points to lead a balanced Indiana offense as the Fever beat the Chicago Sky 83-75 on Friday night.

Natasha Howard, Erlana Larkins and Shavonte Zellous added 13 points each for the Fever (6-5). Marissa Coleman scored 12 points.

Epiphanny Prince had 18 points and Jessica Breland scored 16 for the Sky (6-6), who have lost five of six.

Both teams were without star players. Sky leading scorer Elena Delle Donne missed her fourth straight game due to a Lyme disease flare up. Chicago's Sylvia Fowles (hip) and Indiana's Tamika Catchings (back) have yet to play this season.

Zellous made a driving layup with 29 seconds left to push Indiana's lead to 79-73. Prince responded with a jumper for Chicago to make it a four-point game 6 seconds later.

However, the Fever made four free throws in the final 22 seconds to seal it.
