INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Tamika Catchings and Lynetta Kizer scored 18 points apiece, Briann January keyed a fourth-quarter run and the Indiana Fever overcame an 11-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Dream 78-72 on Friday night.

Catchings was 7 of 9 from the field and Kizer had a career-best five steals. Erlana Larkins added 10 points, 11 rebounds and a season-high five assists, while Shenise Johnson scored 10 points for Indiana (10-12).

January made a layup, hit a 3-pointer and then - after Kizer came up with a steal - found Kizer for a baseline jumper that capped a 9-0 run that gave the Fever a 66-57 lead with 7:47 to play. Indiana, ranked fifth in the AP WNBA power poll, led by at least five the rest of the way.

Carla Cortijo scored a career-high 20 points for the fourth-ranked Dream (11-11). Angel McCoughtry had 10 points, six assists and three steals before fouling out with nearly five minutes remaining.

Kizer has scored in double figures in each of the last four games and is shooting 65 percent (28-of-43) over that span.
