INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Cappie Pondexter scored 24 points and the New York Liberty overcame a 16-point second-half deficit to defeat the Indiana Fever 77-72 on Tuesday night.

Plenette Pierson had 14 points and 11 rebounds, Kelsey Bone scored 12 points and Alex Montgomery added 11 for the Liberty (7-10), who snapped a 3-game losing streak.

Briann January scored a season-high 21 points and had four assists for the Fever (7-9). Tamika Catchings scored 16 points but made just 5 of 17 field goals. Karima Christmas scored 10 points and Erlana Larkins added seven points and a regular-season career-high 16 rebounds for Indiana.

The Fever had won 6 of 7 and were on their way to another win before their shooting failed them. Indiana made just 12 of 39 shots in the second half.

    A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée to an NFL executive five months ago, while league executives have insisted they didn't see the violent images until this week. The person played The Associated Press a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming the video arrived. A female voice expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible."
