The Indiana Fever defeated the New York Liberty on Saturday night 70-66 giving head coach Lin Dunn her 200th win as a professional coach.

The Fever have now won three straight games after an 0-3 start. "We feel confident as a team," said rookie Natasha Howard. "We got three straight wins right now, we still have stuff to learn [and] stuff to work on as a team and as individuals."

As for coach Dunn, while she admitted Saturday's game was a good team, she knows her team still has a lot of work to do.

"We are a work in progress," Dunn said. "Sometimes we pull ahead and we then shoot ourselves in the foot when we sub. We make some knucklehead mistakes."

The game went down to the wire tied at 66-66 with less than 30 seconds to left. However, both Karima Chirstmas and Marissa Coleman each hit clutch free throws down the stretch to give the Fever a four-point lead that would stand for the rest of the game.

Briann January continued her terrific season by scoring a team high 20 points on 7-12 shooting.

"We have plenty of scorers on this team, there's no need for me to shot any extra," January said. "I'm just trying to be available, and they're finding me so I can knock down open shots for them."

The Fever will now be headed on the road for back-to-back road games against the Washington Mystics and the Connecticut Sun at 7 p.m. on June 6 and 7, respectively.
