NEW YORK (AP) — Tamika Catchings scored 14 points to lead Indiana to a 66-51 victory over the New York Liberty on Tuesday night in the decisive Game 3, advancing the Fever to the WNBA Finals.

They will face the Lynx in the championship that begins Sunday in Minnesota.

Catchings, who announced she's retiring at the end of next season, has willed her team to victories. For the fourth time this postseason, Indiana has staved off elimination. The Fever won the final two games in the opening round against Chicago. Then, against New York, the Fever swept the final two contests, rallying from an 18-point deficit in the second quarter in Game 2 to force Tuesday's contest.

Indiana is back in the Finals for the first time since 2012 — the only season the Fever won the championship.
