Langhorne, who made all five of her field goal attempts, broke a 58-58 tie with four straight free throws in the final 23.9 seconds.Shavonte Zellous led the short-handed Fever (1-5) with 17 points and Tamika Catchings scored 16, but the defending Wnational basketball association champions dropped their fifth straight game.With the Mystics up 60-58, Michelle Snow blocked Karima Christmas' game-tying layup attempt. Latta added two free throws in the final seconds as Washington made 16 of 19 overall.Indiana was up 47-43 after the third period. Neither team led by more than four points in the second half, and both shot under 40 percent from the field.Langhorne had nine rebounds, and the Mystics held a 37-29 advantage on the glass.The Fever played their fourth straight game without All-Star Katie Douglas, out since May 31 with a bulging disk in her lower back. Injuries have kept Jessica Davenport, Erin Phillips and Jeanette Pohlen off the court all season.The Fever arrived in D.C. early, honored by President Barack Obama at the White House on Friday.The Father's Day win was the 210th overall for coach Mike Thibault, whose son Eric is an assistant with Washington. The active leader in wins among Wnational basketball association coaches, Thibault, who spent the previous 10 seasons with the Connecticut Sun, is now just one behind Van Chancellor's record of 211 victories.Copyright 2013 by STATS LLC and Associated Press.
