The Indiana Fever close out the 2020 regular season on Saturday at 6 p.m. ET against the Minnesota Lynx. Indiana defeated the New York Liberty last time out, 85-75, on Thursday night.
Indiana’s defense led the way keeping a Fever opponent to its lowest point total all season. The Liberty were held to 33 points in the second half, which was also a season-low for Fever opponents.
Candice Dupree led all scorers with 22 points, seven assists and six rebounds. Dupree was the first Fever player to lead the team in points, rebounds and assists in a single game since May 14, 2017, when current Lynx guard Shenise Johnson did so against the Seattle Storm.
Minnesota comes into Saturday riding a three-game losing streak after falling 104-89 to Las Vegas on Thursday night. Crystal Dangerfield scored 24 points and Napheesa Collier added 17, all in the first half, plus 11 rebounds and five assists for Minnesota.
