Seattle led the game going into halftime 32-28 after outscoring Indiana in each of the first two quarters. The Fever took 56-55 lead after Layshia Clarendon's bank shot with 8:43 remaining in the fourth quarter.

The Fever ran the table the rest of the way outscoring the Storm 25-15 in the fourth quarter, including a 13-6 run over the final four minutes that helped give Indiana the nine-point victory.
