What They’re Saying – July 23

Here’s a look around the web at what people are saying about the Fever’s recent resurgence and Tamika Catching’s strong season.

SB Nation Swish Appeal: “The Fever, led by 23 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, three steals and two blocks from Tamika Catchings took a 65-52 win at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., their second victory over the Mystics (8-9) in three days.” Read More

Associated Press: “The Mystics entered a home-and-home series against Indiana with a better record. By percentage points, they can still make that claim, but the Fever played the two games with the relentless winning style of a defending WNBA champion.” Read More

USA Today: “Shavonte Zellous scored 12 points for the Fever (7-8), who have won six of seven games after suffering a seven-game losing streak. The defending WNBA champions opened a double-figure lead in the second quarter and only briefly let the margin slip back into single digits.” Read More

Indy Star: ”The Fever aren’t winning because of offense: They rank last in the league in shooting (.385) and next-to-last in scoring (69.3). But they lead the league in scoring defense (68.9) and have allowed 63.1 during the seven-game surge. Opponents have averaged 18.3 turnovers in that span.” Read More

Indy Star: “Tamika Catchings has been selected to start her eighth WNBA All-Star Game, finishing second in the Eastern Conference fan voting. Catchings will be joined on the Eastern Conference bench by Indiana coach Lin Dunn for the July 27 game at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.” Read More

WNBA.com: “This marks the 19th time in her career that Catchings has been named Player of the Week, tying her for first all-time with Seattle’s Lauren Jackson. Catchings averaged 15.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists in the Fever’s two games last week, a 77-70 win over Washington at home on July 19, and a 65-52 road victory against the Mystics two days later.” Read More

ESPNW: “This season, the injury-riddled Fever have Catchings playing almost all over the court… And of course, nobody in the WNBA has been better defensively over the long haul than Catchings. She has won the league’s Defensive Player of the Year award five times, including three of the last four years.” Read More

SB Nation Swish Appeal: “Early season it seemed Clarendon drew attention to her hair. A blondish Mohawk style, quite noticeable. Lately, and rightfully so, she is getting noticed for her contributions. One to come off the bench and energize the Fever attack.” Read More
