Success - Article sent! close

Camille Little and Temeka Johnson led a balanced attack with 16 points apiece as the Seattle Storm snapped a three-game losing streak with a 69-60 victory over the Sky on Tuesday night.

The Storm (5-6) shook off poor early shooting and an early 14-point deficit to catch and pass the Sky for a 34-31 lead just before halftime.

Seattle led 54-45 after three quarters and maintained a double-dight lead through most of the fourth quarter as Shekinna Stricklen scored 14 points and Tina Thompson added 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Elena Delle Donne and Epiphanny Prince each scored 12 points. Swin Cash had a game-high 14 rebounds, while Delle Donne added 12 as the Sky (7-4) had their lowest offensive production of the season.

Chicago went 20 for 67 (29.9 percent) from the field and 4 for 22 (18.2 percent) on 3-pointers. Seattle was 23 for 63 from the field (36.5 percent)

Chicago was without WNBA rebounding leader Sylvia Fowles, sidelined with a right ankle sprain suffered in last Saturday's home win over Los Angeles.

Seattle is at Washington on Saturday, while Chicago travels to New York on Sunday.
