SEATTLE (AP) — Breanna Stewart scored 15 of her 19 points in the second half and Ezi Magbegor had 13 points to help the Seattle Storm beat the Dallas Wings 83-74 on Tuesday.
Seattle (16-8) has won three straight games and five of the last six, tying a virtual tie with the Las Vegas Aces (15-7) for second place in WNBA standings. That’s a game behind Chicago Sky, the defending champions.
Magbegor also had eight rebounds, two blocks and two steals for Seattle while Stephanie Talbot added 14 points. Jewell Loyd scored 13 and Tina Charles had 11 points, eight rebounds and two blocks.
Teaira McCowan led Dallas with 18 points in 8-of-14 shooting, grabbed 10 rebounds and made two blocks. The rest of the team collectively shot 32.8% (19 of 58) from the field. Arike Ogunbowale finished with 12 points, while Tyasha Harris tied for her season high with 10 points and Satou Sabally also had 10 points.
Seattle finally took the lead at 6:51 in the third quarter after a sequence in which Stewart made a layup, a 3-pointer and a short jumper within 65 seconds and then found Sue Bird for a drive-and-. kick 3
Bird’s 3-pointer gave her 2,445 career field goals, the seventh most in WNBA history, and passed Cappie Pondexter.
Allisha Gray did not play for Dallas (10-14) (due to personal reasons). The Wings have lost four of their last five games.
