WASHINGTON -- Marissa Coleman scored 20 points, Erlana Larkins added 13 points and nine rebounds, and the Indiana Fever rallied from a 16-point first-half deficit for a 64-61 win over the Washington Mystics on Friday night.

Indiana won its fourth straight for the first time since 2012.

The Fever, playing without leading scorer Briann January (sprained ankle), shot 2 of 18 in the first quarter and trailed 23-7 early in the second.

Down nine at intermission, they outscored Washington 24-9 in the third quarter, led by Larkins' 10 points.

Hartley scored 16 and Ivory Latta added 12 for Washington, which had won three straight.

The Mystics outrebounded Indiana 40-29, but turned over the ball 17 times.
