Liberty slip past Fever 81-76

NEW YORK – Tina Charles had 26 points and added a two pairs of clinching free throws Tuesday night, lifting the New York Liberty to an 81-76 win against the Indiana Fever despite a near-record 33 points from Fever guard Erica Wheeler.

Charles scored 22 points by halftime, and her free throws provided a final cushion the Fever couldn’t overcome.

Wheeler hit a pair of deep 3-pointers in the final moments to keep Indiana within reach. Her seven 3-pointers on 11 attempts tied a Fever record set by Katie Douglas in 2012.

Wheeler’s 33 points were the most since former Fever star Shavonte Zellous scored 33 for Indiana in an overtime game in 2014, and second only to Douglas’ club-record 34 in 2009 against Washington.
