INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Katie Douglas scored 25 points to help the Indiana Fever beat the Atlanta Dream 84-79 on Friday night for their 11th straight win.

Tamika Catchings had 14 points, eight rebounds and four steals and Tammy Sutton-Brown added 13 points for the Fever (11-2), who maintained the best record in the WNBA.

Erika de Souza scored a career-high 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Dream (7-9).

Atlanta jumped out to a 15-8 lead, but the Fever responded with a 17-2 run to take the lead for good.

Atlanta trimmed Indiana's lead to 72-67 midway through the fourth quarter, but Indiana responded with an 8-3 run. A 3-pointer by Ebony Hoffman as the shot clock expired gave Indiana an 80-70 lead with just under 2 minutes left.

Sun 72, Silver Stars 64

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Asjha Jones scored 17 points, reserve Tan White added 15 and Connecticut beat San Antonio.

Sandrine Gruda and Lindsay Whalen had 12 points each and Erin Phillips scored 10 for the Sun (7-6).

All-Star Becky Hammon scored 24 points and rookie Megan Frazee had 14 for the Silver Stars (6-7), who missed their fifth chance to get over .500.

After missing all four of her shots in the third quarter, Jones hit two key baskets after Hammon's layup cut the Sun's lead to 65-64 under the 2-minute mark.

Jones hit a bank shot from about 10 feet out and followed that with a 17-footer on the Sun's next trip down the floor to give Connecticut a 69-64 lead with 26 seconds left.

Storm 69, Monarchs 56

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Sue Bird had 20 points and six assists to lead short-handed Seattle.

Tanisha Wright had 12 points and seven rebounds and Swin Cash added 10 points and six rebounds for the Storm (9-6), who were without leading scorer Lauren Jackson. The All-Star forward is out indefinitely due to a strained left Achilles' tendon suffered in a loss to Detroit on Wednesday.

Nicole Powell had 13 points and Crystal Kelly added 12 for the Monarchs (3-12), who are 0-2 since general manager John Whisenant fired Jenny Boucek as coach and replaced her with himself.

The Storm outrebounded the Monarchs 37-18 and held them to 33-percent shooting from the floor.
