Two members of the Mercury, Kelsey Bone and Mistie Bass, also took a knee.This game of basketball is important for a lot of reasons. One of them is bringing people together. Even uniting people, Catchings said about the impromptu kneeling during the national anthem. Well, we thought it was important to have a voice about something greater than basketball.WNBA President Lisa Borders, who was in Atlanta for the playoff game between the Dream and Seattle backed the players choice to kneel.I support our players expressing their views on important social issues, Borders said in a statement. Standing for an anthem is a sign of respect and a demonstration of unity across many cultures throughout the world. The call to action is for all of us to invest time and resources to help rebuild and strengthen our communities.

Bonner was just 2 of 5 from the floor in the first half.When I got in the second half, I told myself I was going to be aggressive, Bonner said.

Shenise Johnson made two free throws to tie Tiffany Mitchells franchise record with 42 consecutive made free throws.Catchings left the floor at the final buzzer to a standing ovation from the crowd and she hugged every Indiana teammate, including a long embrace with January.
