Indiana Fever defeats New York Liberty in WNBA overtime game

It would’ve been too perfect.

After missing the Indiana Fever’s first three three games of the season while playing in Turkey, Danielle Robinson made her season debut against the New York Liberty on Friday and nearly lifted the Fever to a walk-off win.

The score was tied with 6.4 seconds left in the fourth quarter when Robinson came up with a steal in the closing seconds and speeded down the court for a potential winning layup. The shot was too late and off target, but Robinson came alive in overtime to score eight of her 17 points and propel Indiana to a 92-86 victory.

Robinson drained a pull-up jumper, a 3-pointer and sank three free throws in the extra frame to snap the Fever’s 10-game losing streak in overtime contests. Friday’s win moved Indiana to 2-2 on the season. Last year, it took Indiana 18 games to notch its second win.
