Shock's Comeback Fails In Final Seconds

Posted: Updated:

Tammy Sutton-Brown made a tiebreaking free throw with 37 seconds to play and Tamika Catchings added a key offensive rebound, assist and a pair of free throws down the stretch to lead the Fever to a 73-70 win over the Tulsa Shock on Saturday night.

Sutton-Brown's free throw gave the Fever (7-4) the lead for good, 68-67. She missed the second attempt and Catchings, who had a team-high 16 points, came up with the rebound. The reigning WNBA MVP then passed it to Erin Phillips for a 3-pointer from the right wing with 16 seconds remaining.

Tulsa's Temeka Johnson made a 3 to bring the Shock (1-11) within one with 12 seconds to play, but Catchings added two free throws 3 seconds later for the final margin.

Ivory Latta missed a game-tying 3-point attempt with 3 seconds to go.
