MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Breanna Stewart scored 29 points, including a go-ahead basket by 42.6 seconds, and the Seattle Storm defeated the Minnesota Lynx 81-79 Tuesday night for their fourth straight win.

Stewart floated down the lane to break a 79-all tie. After Minnesota missed Moriah Jefferson’s off-balance layup attempt at the other end, Stewart dribbles down the clock and brings it to Jewell Loyd, who misses a contested shot in the lane. But Stewart grabbed the offensive rebound and passed it to time the clock.

Epiphanny Prince made four 3-pointers in the first five minutes of the fourth quarter to end with 15 points for Seattle (9-5). Loyd added 13 points, including a three-point game for a 57-54 lead after Seattle started the third quarter on an 18-8 run. Sue Bird did not play due to a non-COVID illness.

Stewart scored 15 points in the first half, but Seattle still trailed 46-39. The Storm finished 12 of 27 from 3-point range.

Kayla McBride scored 20 points for Minnesota (3-12), including a 3-pointer to tie it at 79 with 52 seconds left. Jessica Shepard added 12 points, Nikolina Milic added 11 points, and Aerial Powers had 10 points and seven assists.

Minnesota, which has lost four straight games, overtook Seattle by 51.5% to 38.4 but turned it around 15 times.
