Mohegan — Tina Charles scored 14 of her 18 points in the second half to lead the Connecticut Sun to a 76-64 win over the Indiana Fever on Friday night in the opener of the Eastern Conference finals.

The WNBA’s MVP added 15 rebounds and blocked four shot for Connecticut, which used a 14-2 second-half run to open up what had been a tie game at halftime.

Kara Lawson had 16 points and Tan White added 13 for the Sun, who swept New York in the opening round and have now won eight of their last nine games.

Katie Douglas, who spent five years with the Sun and her first seven years in the WNBA with the franchise that moved from Orlando to Connecticut, had 27 points to lead the Fever.
