ATLANTA (AP) -- Tamika Catchings had 25 points and 12 rebounds, Katie Douglas added 16 points and the Indiana Fever beat the Atlanta Dream 78-62 on Sunday. Catchings' double-double was her 73rd, fifth-most on the WNBA's career list, and helped Indiana (3-0) win its second straight over the Dream after losing the Eastern Conference finals to Atlanta last year. Angel McCoughtry finished with 21 points and Lindsey Harding added 13 for Atlanta, which had a six-game home winning streak over the Fever snapped. Catchings, last year's league MVP, took charge of the game in the second quarter. She scored 17 points in the period, going 9 for 9 on free throws, banking in a 6-foot runner to force the game's first tie at 28-all and hitting a 3-pointer to make it 31-31.
