INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) Lindsay Whalen had 23 points and Monica Wright added 22 points and nine rebounds as the Minnesota Lynx beat the Indiana Fever 69-62 in a rematch of last season's WNBA finals Thursday afternoon.

The Fever (4-8) made runs at the Lynx (10-3), but never managed to catch them. Wright and Whalen had plenty to do with that. The backcourt duo scored many of their points in transition off Indiana's 16 turnovers.

Indiana was playing without star guard Katie Douglas, who missed her 10th consecutive game with a bulging disk in her back. The Fever had won three consecutive games.

Shavonte Zellous led the Fever with 14 points. Tamika Catchings added nine points and 10 rebounds.
