Best bet on the Tube


With the Indiana Fever one win away from their first WNBA championship, Tamika Catchings is making sure her teammates don’t get ahead of themselves. Indiana defeated Minnesota 76-59 in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals on Friday to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-5 series. The Fever can clinch today ( 5 p.m. on ESPN2) in Indianapolis. Catchings, a seven-time All-Star and 2011 MVP, told her team not to celebrate after their win because Indiana took a 2-1 lead over Phoenix in the 2009 finals and lost the next two games. A win by the Lynx would send the series back to Minneapolis for a decisive Game 5 on Wednesday night. – Associated Press
