INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Kara Lawson scored 18 points to help the Connecticut Sun beat Indiana 89-81 on Friday night, while WNBA MVP Tamika Catchings missed part of the third quarter after she was accidentally elbowed in the face by Fever teammate Tammy Sutton-Brown.

Catchings left the game with 6:58 left in the third quarter. She went to the locker room with a towel over her face and had a bandage on her lower lip when she returned at the 3:38 mark of the quarter.

The Sun (5-1) went on an 8-0 run with Catchings out.

``I don't think there was any doubt that that knocked us back,' Fever coach Lin Dunn said. ``When you've got your franchise player basically carried out ... I think that shook us a little bit. Yeah, that was a factor.'

Catchings finished with a season-high 31 points for the Fever (4-2).

``Obviously, when she went down, everybody was kind of stunned,' Fever player Katie Douglas said. ``It kind of rattled us a little bit mentally.'

Tina Charles added 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Sun, and Asjha Jones had 12 points and 12 rebounds.

``First off, road wins are hard to come by,' Lawson said. ``We sustained their run in the fourth quarter and kept our turnovers down. We kept our composure which allowed us to win.'

Catchings and Douglas combined for a 9-0 to give Indiana a 79-78 lead with 3:12 left in the game.

Connecticut closed the game with an 11-2 run.

``I thought we played hard in spurts,' Dunn said. ``I don't know why that's happening.'
