Fever beat Dream to end WNBA record-tying 20-game losing skid - ESPN
After nearly a year, the Indiana Fever are back in the win column.
The Fever beat the Atlanta Dream 90-87 on Sunday, Indiana's first victory since June 19, 2022. It ended a 20-game losing streak, which was tied for the longest in WNBA history.
"We talked about it from Day 1 in our team meeting: Culture is the most important thing," Fever coach Christie Sides said. "Culture, playing hard, being the hardest-working team in practice. And I promise you, coaches say it all the time, but these guys have worked really hard every day."
The Fever have not made the playoffs since the retirement of franchise legend Tamika Catchings in 2016. Their postseason drought followed 12 consecutive playoff appearances for the franchise, including three trips to the WNBA Finals and the 2012 league championship.
