Fever rout Lynx in Game 3 of WNBA finals

INDIANAPOLIS — Shavonte Zellous scored a career-high 30 points to help the Indiana Fever beat the Minnesota Lynx 76-59 in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals.

Tamika Catchings added 17 points and Erlana Larkins had 10 points and 15 rebounds for the Fever, who took a 2-1 lead in the series and can clinch their first WNBA title at home Sunday night.

Rebekkah Brunson, who scored 12 points, was the only Minnesota player to reach double figures.

It had been a tense series. Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve was fined after a jacket-throwing tantrum in Game 2, actions that Fever coach Lin Dunn called "disrespectful." Reeve spent most of the second half seated quietly with her hand on her chin.

The Fever's lead of 70-33 with 1:58 left in the third quarter was the largest lead by any team in WNBA Finals history.
