    INDIANAPOLIS -- Katie Douglas scored 21 points, Tamika Catchings added 16 and the Indiana Fever beat the Atlanta Dream 92-84 on Saturday night in the season opener for both teams.

    Jessica Davenport had 12 points and 10 rebounds, and Shavonte Zellous and Briann January each scored 11 points for the Fever. Indiana made 12 of 21 3-pointers and 20 of 24 free throws.

    Angel McCoughtry led Atlanta with 26 points. Sancho Lyttle had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Lindsey Harding added 16 points.

    Atlanta never led. Indiana led by 17 points in the fourth quarter, but had to make free throws in the final minute to hold on.

    It was a rematch of last year's Eastern Conference finals, which Atlanta won 2-1.
