The Indiana Fever are struggling. Pokey Chatman’s team is on a five-game losing streak — the longest of the season. The Fever have managed only one win in their past 10 games.

Oddsmakers opened Indiana as a 5.5-point road underdog in Tuesday’s game (10 p.m. ET) against the Phoenix Mercury. Unlike the Fever, the Mercury are trending in the right direction, having won seven of their last 10 contests and boasting the second-best scoring defense in the league at 73.2 points allowed per game.
